Today is my dad’s birthday, and I have to say he’s the best dad around. He’s put up with me for 28 years with patience I can only strive to have. On Saturday, after the family portraits, all of us kids went over to my parents house for a relaxing afternoon of pizza, champagne, kiddie pools and sunshine.
Claire thoroughly enjoyed playing in her kiddie pool, and Jen and I enjoyed soaking our feet in it. She loved pouring water on herself and splashing us, keeping us cool in the summer heat.
Her favorite game, however, was one that involved “Uncle B” (which she now can say, instead of calling the two of us “aunt b” collectively). Uncle B would fill up the watering can and create a shower over the pool. When his water came out, Claire would promptly say “Shower? More water please?”
After shower time, it was sandbox time. Uncle B was fun there, too…
Of course, after she got sandy she needed shower time again
All in all, it was a wonderful day full of laughter and family fun–I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Hopefully Dad had just as much fun! Happy birthday, pop-pop!
