Tori was so much fun this year. Since she is four, no water slide was too big. Her little legs climbed thousands of stairs and she went with anyone who would take her. Here she and Mr. Rick are "landing" after her "Mr. Rick, Mr. Rick, want to take me on a big water slide?" request.
Here's Tori on her first trip across the lily-pads. She was so funny dangling from the rope and wobbling on the lily-pads.
The life-guard helped her claw herself out of the pool the first time. After that, she pulled the floating pad close enough to make the leap herself.
Alyssa and Ben both practiced enough to run across without the ropes assistance. We have some entertaining video of Ben running half way and falling, then scrambling back on as if he was being timed or something.
Elijah was really fun also. He played (and slept) well in the water park.Elijah would only float in his life jacket without being held if he was holding the pool basketball. I guess it's thrill distracted him.
Julia wasn't a big fan of the water slides. She had a blast on the little slides and the kiddie pools however. I'm sure that will all change by next year.
Here's the best traditional leaving photo, where the most children are smiling. I can't ever get everyone to smile at the same time!
However, I love this picture just because little Elijah is hugging Tori as hard as he can.
Another year of fun family memories made.
