Living it up at the waterfront and the pool

We went to the Mukilteo waterfront yesterday. After an early lunch of fish and chips at Ivar's, we just HAD to have some ice cream. What better way to start your day at the waterfront? By the way, I know that Aidan looks three sheets to the wind, but I promise, we did NOT spike his Pediasure. A friend of mine says his family calls it an "ice-cream stupor."

As you can see, it was a glorious day in the Northwest.

After naptime, we set up the pool in the backyard.

We've had the sprinklers out already this summer, but this was Aidan's first time in the pool.

What do you think? Does it look like he's enjoying himself?

Both this shot and the previous one are my favorites of the bunch. For this one, I tried to get the kids to pose and smile in the pool, but Lily ran toward the camera and this is what I got. Rather serendipitous, I must say.

And now, for something completely different!

That last video I posted was, of course, very silly. But now, here's a very serious one. Enjoy hearing a virtuoso performance from the duo of Lily and Aidan on the piano.
