Gideon had a great time running:
|He wanted to go down on his belly like the older kids|
and making new friends who were happy to pour water on his belly:
He had so much fun he never wanted to leave. As in ever. Never, ever, ever. And that is why I had to carry him kicking and screaming across a million degree parking lot and then wrestle him into his carseat. This was a first for us, his best tantrums are normally saved for inside our house where I have apparently been guilty of many offenses. With no practice he was surprisingly good at planking his body so that it was nearly impossible to strap him into the seat. Where did he learn that? Are there toddler meetings that I don't know about where they share tactics with one another? It was bad enough that I attempted a picture for daddy...and he stole my phone.
About halfway home he threw the phone at me. It grazed my hair and landed in my lap. I like to think it was a warning shot, the kid has amazing aim.
