Ready, Set, Go (Slowly)

Summer is here! After planning to head out eminently for a bicycle ride to Greenlake pretty much all day, Lake and I finally rolled out this evening around 5:30 pm. Partially around the north side of the lake we encountered the wading pool filled with water, kids and summertime. We had to reconsider our plan to stop and take in the scene. Lake, in spite of his name, is not like a duck to water. Instead he’s quite suspicious of the water that goes sploosh.

Lake gave the wading pool a long slow gander before he began to mosey his way over to the edge. He found a series of buckets and toys to co-opt as his own. He threw the red bucket into the water then followed in after. And then he really didn’t want to leave. They drain the pool between 6-7pm and we stayed for the whole event. Some nice picnickers with a 3 year old loaned us a towel. He was quite wet and the weather was turning cold as we dried off and bicycled for home.
