This weekend we went to my niece’s High School graduation party. It was great to see her finished with High School, full of hopes and dreams for the future. She’s already been accepted to a really good school and has a major in mind that I know she will be great at. I’m so proud of her! Not only is she my niece, but she’s my God Daughter as well, so she has always been particularly special to me and it’s really great to see her do so well.
The party was held at her aunt’s house, and we all had a great time hanging out, talking, laughing and catching up with some family members we don’t see very often.
Most importantly for the kids however… there was a pool!
The kids probably spent about 4 hours in the pool, swimming and jumping off the diving board. There was even a slide! There were so many older cousins around that Miss Fancy, the Princess and the Professor constantly had someone nearby to make sure they were Ok. Mummy and I felt pretty comfortable letting them swim and play without even having to join them. We just kept a watchful eye on them from the overlooking deck.
Even the Milk monkey spent some time in the water.
After a long day in the big pool, the Princess spotted this little tub half filled with water that had been warming in the sun all day…
“It’s my hot pool, Daddy!”
All in all, it was a really fun day and we all had a great time.
