Weekend Fun: Photo Shoot

This weekend B, J, N and I went to our neighborhood pools (there are two within walking distance of our house) for the first time. We also spent some time at the neighborhood playground. It was a lot of fun and a nice break from unpacking. Here are some pics of the first pool and the playground. Enjoy!

Our house. We're not parked in the garage yet as it's still full of boxes. B was happy to see the Dr. Pepper vending machine greeting us as we entered the pool area.
J wasn't sure what to think of these turtles (there are two) in the pool.
B and J swimming.

Then we had to check out this sprinkler area next to the pool. We're not sure how we did it, but we managed to make some of the sprinklers come on. They felt really nice in the heat.
Every so often, water starts coming out of a different part of the sprinkler park.N got sprinkled, but he didn't seem to mind.On one side of the pool, there is a shelf that has 6 inch deep water. It's a fun place to relax and hang out.I put the camera on timer so I could get a picture of B, J and I on the shelf. More shelf fun. J loved it so much, he didn't want to go back in the main part of the pool with B.This is J's favorite new thing to do: the hippo face.J and N in our new double stroller on the way to the playground.The playground (right next to the pool) J likes to peek out this "window" at us. J trying some rock climbing. This was as high as he got.
Then J decided to climb up this "rock wall."He made it all the way to the top! This is a big deal as J has never been a very good climber.What's that? The hippo face. J on a swing. If you look closely...yes, that's the hippo face.J on the dinosaur stairs.And, in case you were concerned, N was having fun too!
