Splash It, Baby!

It was a good day, full of splashes and naps. The Qster initiated a "stop and go" game in the wading pool, which had us racing around furiously. It took me a moment to figure out what he meant by yelling "top!" and freezing, but I got it after a few more rounds. I'm wondering if they're playing the game at preschool, because it's a new one.

My parents brought some pretty terrific books that he's enjoying, but there's no question that the best toy ever is the empty plastic Coffeemate container that they saved for him. It's got a narrow handle, perfectly sized for a small hand to hold while drumming.

Drumming, drumming, happy drumming!

The pool is at our friend's community center down in San Jose (Cambrian area). They brought us there on their guest passes. Wish it was always open!

Hey, if you put some beans or rice in there, it could double as a shaker. (Though you might want to glue it shut then, if he likes it!)

Don't you love how the free toys are better than the fancy ones?
