For Fathers Day, Kate got me a DVD (Entourage, 3rd season), a Super-Soaker water gun (Toys for big boys) and took me to breakfast at Mickey D's. Jack made me a picture frame at daycare and decorated it with paint. In the picture frame was a picture of him wearing a shirt that said "My Dad is the Man!" How true, how true.
After his morning nap, we went over to Kate's Fathers house in Gaithersburg for some swimming. Charlie and Barbara were there when we showed up so they got a little quality time with their great grandson. We exchanged some presents for the Mothers Day that had come and gone and also the requisite Fathers Day presents.
Jack had some presents waiting for him for his birthday, too. He got some great books and some little plastic gardening tools. One of the books had LED lights in it and would sing a song when you pressed a button. What will they think of next?
After the present exchange we went down to the pool. It was cold at first, but after a minute it was very nice. You had to jump in, cause otherwise you kill yourself an inch at a time. After Kate got in and I got in, we let Jack get to the edge and dip his feet in. He didn't cry, but wasn't enamored with the cold water (it really wasn't that cold). Every time we lowered him down, his legs would curl up. We let him stand on the stairs and he was comfortable with that for awhile. Kate held him for a few minutes, too, in the water and dipped him in once and awhile. We put him in the little floater that Kate got and he didn't like that, so we took him out and Grandma Fritz cuddled him. He always likes that, so we swam and Grandma Fritz (Karen) cuddled him until he started to fall asleep.
We continued to swim for another half hour cause we never get to swim or have time to spend alone doing stuff like swimming. We took full advantage - Thanks Karen and Tim!
