Carefully exploring the place
It took Nathaniel close to an hour before he completely warmed up to the idea. But he was willing to play in the water as long as I was carrying him.
And this is Little Miss P. She's the youngest of Kristin's two adorable children.
She is six months old and also half-Filipino! (except Daddy is the Filipino, not Mom). Just look at those thick, beautiful lips!
We were at the splash park for about two and a half hours and although I religiously put sunblock on Nathaniel, I forgot to put some on me. Needless to say, my shoulders are burnt.
Nathaniel also spent quite a few time watching the older kids paint. He really enjoys the company of older children and there was one older boy that really looked after him (reminding other children "he is just a baby"). But still, one of the "younger" children yelled 'no' to Nathaniel when he just went closer to say 'hi.'
It took a lot for me to tame my mommy-lioness but the child's mother stepped in and corrected her daughter. Whew!
But in turn, I got the above photo. Nathaniel kept screaming 'no' for the next few minutes, especially since just learned this
lovely word recently.
There's another splash park that I'm thinking about going. Maybe his cousin will join, too! Although we probably won't be staying as long since Nathaniel developed a low grade fever.
