So for Landon's 2nd birthday, Aunt Shauna
bought him this water table. We haven't put
it together until about a month ago when mommy
went out of town to enjoy the play "Grease" that
was playing down in southern Utah with some friends.
Jon was working nights
so Aunt Shauna came out for the weekend to help babysit
her special "man". Grandma and Grandpa also help babysit,
which is always a special pleasure.
So Aunt Shauna put it together and when he woke up from his
nap, his special surprise was waiting for him in the backyard.
So Landon is a fish inside and out, he LOVES bath time, playing
in the creek in Island Park for a few examples. So when presenting
this surprise we knew it was going to be the best babysitter we could
have. After 2 hours he was still playing, coming up with new games
and refilling the table with the hose when it got low.
So when it came time for dinner.....we'll lets just say......It wasn't
a happy experience pulling him away from it to go and eat dinner.
After dinner we let him play for a bit longer but then had to pull
him away again for of all things a "bath"....lol
So the next morning, bright and early he was all intent
to go and play in the water. We finally talked him into
eating some breakfast but that was the fastest breakfast
he'd ever eaten.
He played for a few more hours content as a fish could be.
When mommy showed up later, the first thing he done
was to show her his new toy, he wasn't interested in giving
her hugs or kisses...he was all into playing with her in
So Monday morning came when she dropped him off at 8:00 am,
he was already focused on going outside that morning and playing
with his water table. I done what I could to entertain him to keep
his mind off of going outside and getting wet so early in the morning.
That lasted till about 9:30 am when I finally gave in and let him
play while I watered the plants in the yard and done a few other
things. He played for about an hour when I got him to come in and
lay on the couch and watch Mickey Mouse.
He is growing up so fast and watching him experiencing childhood
moments is the best and being a grandparents is the ultimate experience.
