On Tuesday, July 17, 2012, we attended a get together with my counseling friends at Casey's parent's pool. In attendance were Casey, Maribeth, Nick, Amy and Susie. The big kids tried out their puddlejumpers for the first time. Andy and I were getting ready so Gwen and Cole followed everyone else out to the pool and went right in. Apparently within seconds Cole realized that he had no idea what he was doing and started to freak out which scared Gwen and they both ended up making quite the scene. Thankfully they settled down long enough to try again. Gwen took to it right away but Cole insisted that we hold onto him for awhile. REid loved splashing in the water. I think he was thrilled that he was doing something that the big kids were doing. He seems to be super proud of himself recently when he can play with the big kids.
Andy and I had fun catching up with everyone. I love that it always seems as if no time has passed when we get together and that our kids enjoy playing together.
