One of the goodies that the Easter Bunny left was a water table for Aria. I'd planned on having a water table this spring/summer for months, so it is pretty nice of EB to bring it for her. To me playing outside in the water is the quintessence of childhood. I have so many memories of running through the sprinklers with my cousins as a kid, or splashing around by the ocean, or having a ball in one of those small kiddie pools. It is just one of those simple pleasures you experience as a kid that I'd imagine is a pretty universal thing.
Aria has been a water baby from her very first bath so I just knew she would have a blast with any type of water play. Since it was in the 60s on Easter, and way too cold for us Floridians to be playing in water, we had to wait a day to break in the water table. And, it was everything I'd been hoping for. Aria was a little wary of the whole thing at first, but then warmed right up to it as soon as she realized she got to make a big mess. Plus, she couldn't be any cuter in her new bathing suit the EB also tucked in her basket.
We waited for dada to come home from work and splish splashed until dinner time. It was fun for everybody, because when your kid is delighted it is impossible not to be delighted yourself (even if that is the delight of throwing cucumbers on the floor when you really shouldn't and mama and dada just told you not too...sometimes you just can't resist that naughty grin). Naturally I captured a little video of it, take a look.
