Its Sunday so I’m linking up with Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for the Ordinary Moments again!
On Friday Mark came home from work with a paddling pool for Arthur. I was so excited as I’ve been desperate for him to have one! I know we are spoiled with having access to a swimming pool two minutes away but there is something very special about a paddling pool, I think so any way!
I have such happy memories of being in the paddling pool when I was little and so I was so excited for Arthur now having his own.
On Saturday I was Skyping my dad who has been working on a boat for the last two months. We hadn’t been able to chat for a while as the wifi on board isn’t very reliable (they are in the middle of the North Sea so you can’t expect it to be great!). Half way through the call we had a power cut 😦 so we couldn’t finish talking which was sad. It got really hot in the house really quick so I jumped at the opportunity to get Arthur in the paddling pool!!
I only filled it up a little but he had SO much fun splashing and crawling around in the cool water.
Im not sure whether part of the excitement of the paddling pool for me being little was that it was only the odd day you could use it as its obviously a weather dependent activity!! However I hope that Arthur will continue to have fun in his and I know we will get lots of use out of it :). Arthur is a very lucky boy to have a life where playing in a paddling pool really can be an ordinary moment!
