Water Fountains

the outdoor mall near our house has water fountains that randomly shoot water in the air. the kids all love it, and to the dismay of their parents, they run around and get soaked in their nice clothes. except Addie, she doesn't want much to do with the fountains, or sprinklers for that matter. my only hope of getting her wet was to convince to go step on the little grates hoping that the timing would be right and get her wet. it only worked once and we got it on video below.

also, i tried to get Addie to follow me through the fountains, running through during a break in the action hoping to not get wet myself. i would run through and look back to see if Addie followed me, but no, she would run all the way around and avoid the fountains altogether.

Swim Class

Addie started her first swim class last Saturday. It was a beautiful, sunny day for a swim & since daddy is a such a water-lover, it's time for Addie to get comfortable in it too. She was unsure at first, but seemed to really enjoy it & has been asking to go back. Best of all, she took a great nap afterwards :)

Through Addie's Eyes

Digital cameras have become so easy, even a 2 year old can use them. Here's what happens when Addie get's free reign of the camera:

Notice how she realizes her feet are an easy target and her love of Monster's Inc (we have several more TV shots from her!)
