We took the kids down to the local community pool this afternoon. Jen and I were sitting on the side with our legs in while the kids were swimming around. A chair opened up in the shade so I got up and moved over there.
Shortly after a little girl started splashing Noah in the face repeatedly right in front of Jen. Noah wouldn’t say anything but obviously didn’t like it so Jen said very politely, “Excuse me I don’t think he wants to be splashed.” She looked at Jen and stopped. “Thank you.”
Immediately the little girl proceeded to splash Jen, soaking her pretty well. As calm as can be, while obviously upset, Jen gets up and starts drying herself. “And I definitely didn’t want to be splashed!”
Meanwhile at a safe distance away in the shade I had a good laugh 🙂
Picture it, a beautiful summer evening, you’re with your family on a beautiful warm beach having a photo session with a photographer. The sun is setting and the sky looks as though an artist has used it as their canvas.
While others are having their picture taken you are walking through the edge of the water. Your kids are close by playing and walking in the water as well looking for hermit crabs and shells. You hear your wife say to your daughter, what are you doing, you can’t be taking pictures with your phone over the water like that.
You turn to look and see that the scene should be captured in a picture. You reach into your pocket to pull out your phone and oops. You look down and in the clear water you can clearly see the WordPress logo on your case staring back up at you. Quickly you pick it up and turn it off, but instantly you know it’s over. You look to your wife and daughter and say or else this could happen and show them the phone dripping with salt water.
On the way home you stop and pick up rice and put the phone in to dry it out. Knowing full well that might work if it were fresh water that might stand a chance.
We had another fun day in Moncton today. If their winters didn’t seem to be at least as bad as ours if not worse I’d consider moving here at some point. I mean I was born in Moncton so it would sort of like be coming home.
We did a bit of back to school shopping first thing this morning, but then we were able to enjoy the rest of the day. We went to Centennial Park and to their “beach” they have there. It is a pool with sand brought in around it. The kids really enjoyed it. On the way out we stopped at the splash pad they have there as well. As long as they are wet that’s all that matters.
This evening we went back to the beach. We had a photography session booked with a friend of ours on Parlee Beach. It was a perfect evening for being on the beach and I think we are going to end up with some awesome family pictures.
We’re already looking at booking another weekend getaway here even if it might not be until next summer.
We were looking for something to do today that would get is outside. The temperatures were above freezing, even if just barely, so we wanted to take advantage.
We talked about going for a walk, or to a playground, but Noah decided he wanted to play basketball. We didn’t know what the court would be like so we headed to a playground with a basketball court just in case it was flooded or too wet.
Luckily it worked out and we got to play. It ended up turning into a boys vs girls game which didn’t seem overly fair to me, but Noah and I held our own!
