Friday Afternoons

While a lot of the country is still in the middle of winter including my mom who is buried in snow, we are in the middle of a warm spell.

Friday afternoon, Doug was home from work since it was his last day at his job with the home builder. He will start his new job on Monday at the engineering firm that he worked at right out of college. One of the perks of the new job is that he will only work until noon EVERY Friday! So, we considered Friday a practice run for what life will be like now.

When we got Barrett home from school, we filled up the pool and got ready to get the boys in. While the weather was really warm, the water was not.

Barrett didn't care how cold the water was. He was so happy to be back in his pool again!

Fisher was happy when we first put him in,

but as soon as Barrett started splashing,
Fisher was not happy.

I took Fisher out of the pool, and he was happy to go help Daddy with the finishing touches on the fortress he has built.

With his baby brother out of the way, Barrett was able to splash all he wanted. Even though he said he wasn't cold, his reaction to the water when he first got really wet says otherwise.

Barrett really wanted a playmate, so little Ava from down the street came to swim with him. They had so much fun splashing, sliding, and running all over the place.

They even played up in the fort. Ava's Daddy was over too, and he busted Barrett trying to kiss Ava up in the fort. Her Daddy took this picture with his phone as he told Barrett to be good up there with his little one!

We are in for lots of mad Dads with this little ladies man!

Friday was so much fun. We are looking forward to many more afternoons with Daddy!
