Water Table and Birthday Party

A little out of order, but here is post from Saturday…

Yesterday the UPS man dropped off a water activity table at our front door. It was a gift from Anders’ cousins Harrison and Colton. I was pretty excited because I’ve been wanting to get one for Anders, but haven’t rushed out to find one since it has been so rainy.

As luck would have it the clouds parted yesterday, the sun shone and Anders got to try out his new toy. Then he and his dad played with it again today.

After some water table fun we headed down to Sacajawea Park for a 2nd birthday party for some friends’ daughter. After a quick round of “Happy Birthday” and some cake eating, the kids headed into the playground for swinging, sliding, crawling and jumping. Anders primarily dug in the dirt with a plastic spoon.

    Another Excellent post. I would also mention that whenever we take Anders outside, he heads straight for the water table and wants to play whether its filled or not.
