Meanwhile, Paul took the kids to the pools with our Niece Megan and some friends. Paul was reaquainted with over-zealous protocol in Canadian pools ("Excuse me Sir, you need to be within arm's reach of your children!"). I'm guessing that means if it weren't for Megan helping out, he would have needed three arms. Or perhaps if he could just be one of those elastic men and could stretch himself to go in three different directions...but anway, then when it came to the slides, apparently he wasn't allowed to go down with the children (how does the arm's reach rule apply there?) and so he had to convince the girls to go down by themselves. Naturally, the first thing I heard when I arrived home was, "Mum, MUM! I went down the slide!" times three. Very cool. And they had a blast with their new friends Noah, Maia and Markus, and I think there may have been some others there, but as yet, Paul and I still have some catching up to do.
I forgot to blog yesterday: a quiet day at the house with the grandparents and then a fabulous meal with our friends and a great visit while the children played together.
