Happy Friday! Last weekend, we were in Rhode Island visiting family (which I plan to recap next week). Since it was a pretty busy weekend, we made a point to take it easy this week. We spent a few days at the pool and even had a PJ day at home. This week reminded me of how I spent summers growing up, and I loved it!
We love spending our days at the pool. After seeing what other kids play with at the pool, we've learned what the best toys are. While Noah loves swimming in the big pool, we often play in the little kid splash area when with our friends. My mom recently picked up these Avengers and Finding Dory diving toys and they have been a huge hit at the pool! Not only does Noah like to dive for them in the 2 1/2 feet pool, but all the kids fight over which superhero or fish they want to be! You can check out more of our favorite pool essentials here.
Our friends bring some pretty cool toys to the pool too. These dinosaur claws are meant for the sand, the kids have a blast splashing water at each other with them. Noah loved them so much that we just ordered a set!
The other day, Noah randomly told me he needed a crown. So we grabbed some construction paper, I cut out the points, and Noah got to decorating. He was King Noah for the rest of the day and only took it off (reluctantly) for a bath and bedtime. A few days later we were playing the Daniel Tiger game and was Prince Wednesday... so he of course had to wear his crown. I really love this age with his imagination and creativity!
Last weekend, we went to my best friend's daughter's 2nd birthday party! We've been friends since middle school, which means we've known each other for 20 years... man I feel old! She hosted the party in their backyard and had the cutest ice cream theme, complete with an ice cream sundae bar.
In case you need to catch up, here are my posts from the week...
