Lisa, Lydia and I went to the McNair Park pool for the first time today. We spent a little over an hour there, with the majority of the time dedicated to climbing the steps to and sliding down the big slide. After going down a couple of times with each of us, Lydia proceeded to going down on her own. She would smile and laugh the whole way down and didn't mind the few times she rolled over onto her belly.
It was really fulfilling to see, and hear, her having so much fun. It is one of those times where you know you have shown your child something new and exciting and they are thrilled with it. It is heart-warming and makes you feel incredibly blessed as a parent. I am sure this will become a fairly regular activity for our family over the coming months and years.
