Splash Park Funness

Ok, so "funness" isn't a word, but that's the best way I know how to explain our venture to the Germantown Splash Park today. It was our first time there, and much thanks to the Wilcox's who shared their tickets with us.

Jack took a few minutes to get acclimated, and then he was all the way in.

Matthew got used to it pretty quickly as well after some reassuring from Mommy.

And Emma just squeeled her way through the day.

She also found some time to do some stretches.
Jack and the "whale from Nemo." (Anything related back to Nemo makes it fun and safe for him these days.)
Close up.
And back to stretches.
Jack was more "water brave" then I had seen him before. At one point he took Matthew by the hand and led him to the tallest water shoots and then ran away from him leaving Matthew confused and scared. Surely unintentional, but funny in a weird way.

"What is she doing?"
"Oh well, I'll join her."
"That wasn't so bad."
"See Meg, you gotta get your face real close to the water in order for it to shoot up your nose. I'll show you."

And then they were very ready for their naps. That's one of the best part about the Park. :)

What funness!

Georgetown Outing

Emma wasn't the only one in Georgetown, but the only kid to be pictured this time.

MegDuko Wha?

To any who may be wondering about the title of the last post, here is Cara's explanation:

"FYI to any who wonder: "Duko" is the Marc fam's pet name for Matthew. When Matthew was still a newborn, his big sister called him Duko for a while... we never did find out why. Now, nearly two years later, Meg has long since moved on, but Jess and Kris are still calling our boy Duko, or sometimes just "Duke." Jack, being an efficient little fella with no use for extraneous conjunctions, just calls our kids "MegDuko," hence, the title of Jess' post."

Wonder no more.
