The plan was to go to the swimming pool (for the first time all season!) on Friday night. We were a little bummed when it started to rain in the afternoon just as we finished wrapping up all the tie-dyed items for curing.
Well, okay, not everyone was bummed! Addie & Junah had a blast in the rain!!
"A raindrop got in my eye!"
It was a couple of hours before we intended to go, so we just hoped that it would blow over by then.
In the meantime, MACRAMÉ got underway!!
The boys didn't make a ton of progress in this endeavour -- distractions!!!
But I'll hold onto it all and maybe we can continue at Christmas time. Kate joined us for that activity and finished a plant hanger... and since then she's finished another, and another, and is currently dreaming up all sorts of ideas for future projects (not limited to plant hangers)!
Lo & behold, the rain did blow over and we met Ali & the girls down at the pool (while Ann & Brian made supper)!
Mack & Addie went down the big slide a few times, and convinced Junah to try it, too! It's the first year that he can do it alone. He said that it made his tummy feel funny, so once was enough!
We took an opportunity to wrangle the kids together at the side of the pool and I handed Ali my camera for some of my favorite photos of the weekend!
