We had a lovely time this weekend, even though we stayed at the pool and didn't make it to the beach.
My parents live a few miles inland, and I just couldn't muster the effort to pack up all our gear for the beach when SoJo would probably be ready to leave in 30 minutes. He's fair-skinned, hates wearing a hat, and we don't own a beach umbrella, so I decided just to take him back and forth to the pool in my parents' neighborhood.
He loves the water, and enjoyed climbing the steps. He was a little scared of the baby pool though. I think he feels a bit unstable walking in water.
And me? I've loved water since I can remember, so it was relaxing, at least the times when I wasn't on drown-watch. Mr. Geek let me swim some laps in peace and kept an eye on S.
Still sportin' that staycation beard thing.
SoJo has discovered stones, and will stop immediately when spotting a patch of them. He loves tossing, tumbling, and tasting them.
When we got home yesterday, we remembered that it was our town's annual celebration, which takes place in the nearby park. The day ends with fireworks, so Mr. Geek and I sat on our upstairs balcony (I love writing that), lit some candles, and had a perfect view of the display from our porch swing.
When SoJo gets older, we'll walk over to the park to enjoy the view from below. Much scarier that way.
