A Day at the Water Steps

One of the best parts of our summer has been getting together with my mom friends and their babies. Well, and our other kids too. ;)

One steamy, super hot day, a few of us headed downtown to the North Shore Water Steps to cool the kids off.  It's always a hit with the kids since it's a fun way to cool off and a hit with the moms because right in the middle of our gorgeous city and it's free!

We'd gone last year when Lily was not walking yet.

Almost a year to the day later, we went again where Lily walked, climbed, shouted, splashed and played with friends.  Two of the Amys in our group {there are two Stephanies too} and their kids were a part of today, which was perfect because Reagan and Amy's oldest are close in age as well. The other Amy and her Victoria were as happy to be exploring the steps. Well, truthfully it's not exploring so much as, Amy running interference with V's climbing to keep her safe. :)

We all brought lunch, had a little water steps picnic and kept on playing. Lily wasn't really in the mood for posed photos because she just wanted to be down and playing.

Victoria wasn't up for it much more than Lily was. haha  One of my favorite things about Amy is her sense of humor and her ability to laugh! I love it and was cracking up so hard when taking these!

Reagan was happy to be home with us this week to go, as she remembers last year too! She ran into a few friends from school and also one of her friends from our old neighborhood.  She was super excited to see them and had a good time playing with some unexpected playmates! 

Lily was happy to be playing with V's wiffle ball and Amy's son entertained her by tossing it back everytime and chasing it for her. You can definitely tell he's got a baby sister. ;)

Lily really had a great time this year! I love that she wants to play with her sister, friends and is content to explore on her own. 

We played for a few hours and then it was time to head home for naps. Even Reagan fell asleep in the car on the way home. Lily slept for about 3 1/2 hours after we'd gotten home!

Bye bye!
'til next time...

Great day, great city, great friends.
