Same places, the sea, the beach, the pool, the playground. Just that Randall has grown 4 years older. The cuteness of little baby Randall 5 years ago or toddler Randall 4 years ago is now replaced by enthusiasm in swimming.
Well, the time in the pool has been well spent, for he is now one level up in his swimming class. Hurray!
Thanks to those less beach-friendly days, being either a little too hot or a little too chilly, we got a chance to do something different, although the involvement of wetness stays the same. Randall is now no longer scared of that water park as he was years ago, but he does wish it was bigger.
The Seaquarium is rather small but fun. Aside from watching all the sea animal shows (some of them twice), Randall has also won a water gun battle and completed his first rope course.
It’s been a perfect Christmas with nice weather, good food, tons of fun, and best of all, the perfect friends to share all these with.
Randall’s first water park visit, and he is thrilled! The daily routine goes like this: we take a tube to drift in the lagoons, then go on the tube slide a few times before we can persuade him to move on to the next big slide, and this process repeats with another two water slides. Then it’s the kids area, where he can play and go down the water slides all on his own. After dinner, we all go to the Tom Foolerys Park, which is a video game arcade with a few indoor amusement rides. Highlight: daddy aced the go-cart game twice and Randall the bowling game (shhh! with the help of a ramp).
It’s the most snowy, yet most beautiful halloween ever, with the snow adding a white touch on the glamorous fall colors.
Just before the summer weather is gone, we visit Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch again. Same animals, same activities as last year, but Randall is enjoying them even more this year.
It’s more about social than jumping.
Trains, trucks, tractors, and more.
Alpaca. One, two, three!
Upgraded from last year’s man-powered digger.
Feels like flying. Well, almost.
Time to sail off to the lake!
“When I grow up, I wanna be a police officer”.
Of course there’s other big dreams too, including being a wonder woman.
