Warm weather... Finally!

We are so glad that it is actually starting to feel like summer's about time! This morning we went to the park with a group of mom's from our ward and my sister-in-law and whole group of little girls. Poor Sam, none of the friends that I'm making in our new ward have boys! Hmmm, I might have to work on that, but in the meantime, he doesn't seem to mind too much. We went to a great little park that has a wading pool and spray area which is perfect for the little kids. First we started with a picnic lunch and then we turned the kids loose. Sam went straight for the wading pool, of course, and hardly left it until it was time to go. He loves water so much and now he wants to go to a "real water pool". The water was pretty shallow, but really cold. But that didn't seem to stop Sam from jumping right in.

Andrew really wanted to be in the water, but he was shocked by the temperature. Eventually he got used to it enough to stand at the edge and splash. Every time he sat down, though, he wailed because of the icy shock. But he definately didn't want out!

Sam and Colette playing together.

We weren't sure if Ela would want to get in the water, but with Sam there holding her hand she had a great time. They are such cute cousins and great friends!

And did I mention that the water was cold? Well, Bre decided to give Bernie a chance to experience it and I think we can see what he thought about it! He is so adorable!

The moms: Bre, Chari, Amy, Sharla, and Melissa. This was just before we left before all of the kids had their "naptime meltdown". It's always amazing to me to watch how they can be playing nicely and then it's like they hit a wall and just can't be human anymore. That was followed by a mad rush to get all of the stuff gathered, wet clothes off, garbage disposed of, and goodbyes said and we raced home for naps. It was a fun little outing and I'm pretty sure all of the kids (and moms) were ready for those naps!
