This is what happens to a Maisie girl when you play all day at the water park!
We visited the Quincy Aquatic Center for the first time today. They have 2 slides--but you have to be 48 inches tall to ride alone! So Maisie has to go down on the lap (how is that safer? she can SWIM, for heaven's sake!) of Mommy or Daddy. It was pretty fun, she also practiced floating, and did two assisted somersaults. We thought Greg was going to be blind for a few days until his new contacts come, since he lost his glasses on the slide the first time down! We searched (ok, I searched, since I was the only one who could SEE) for 1/2 hour before Greg thought to check lost and found--someone had already turned them in (but didn't notice us walking around glaring into the bottom of the pool?)!
And this is an unaltered photo that Greg took of Maisie with her first 4th of July Sparklers. Weird smile, but I guess that's what 4 year olds do.
