FFF - My Swimming Girl

Happy Friday everyone, I'm not sure if there is a FFF theme this week or not, but I decided I'm making up my own. I have a lot of Disney pics to get posted so I thought today I'd get a little more of that done. Be sure and check out the other FFF posts over at Sarah's blog!
One of the things Riley was really looking forward to (well besides the Princesses, the Dumbo ride and the Teacups) was the pool - my girl LOVES to swim - I bet there wasn't a day that went by that she didn't spend at least 2 hours in the water and I'm really not exaggerating at all. Oh yeah and the pool at our hotel was AMAZING!!! It had a huge waterfall thing coming in to it - the mask totem pole looking guys spitting water into the pool, a water slide, a kiddie pool that squirted water up, a playground........we could have spent the entire day here and been fine because yeah there was even a little place to get food too. My very favorite thing though - they provided life jackets so we didn't have to haul ours from MO to FL, they think of everything!

She made a great swimming buddy while we were there - her name was Tiffany and she was 5 and they were great playmates. My favorite was just after we had met her (seriously like 3 minutes into their first playtime) as we were walking to the bathroom Riley says "I really like her, I'm going to invite her to my next birthday......when we get back, I'll ask her her name" I love it - kids are so eager and willing to make friends and it really helps us parents out when we are the playmates for 7 days. There's something about another person their size that satisfies when mommy and daddy become boring. We were thankful that Tiffany was there most of our stay because after she left, the pool just wasn't quite as fun. Riley couldn't find another playmate quite like Tiffany, but she tried, once even saying "Momma, I wanna go over there and pick out a kid."
Me. Riley, Joey, Tiffany and her Mom - thanks lifeguard guy for taking our picture!

Looks like you had a great time! Isn't it nice when they meet other little friends? It makes their vacation that much more special and they remember those friends for years to come!!

I loved all your Disey pictures. How FUN! I love how kids make friends so easily.

Hey, have you considered adding the "follow me" feature? Sometimes I forget to read my favorite blogs that don't have that feature. ;)

Your welcome.

Riley is going to be the most awesome big sister. She'll have a permanent sidekick. Her thought processes and Riley-isms crack me up.

I still use that thought process on my kids. When they are irritating me, I tell them they are not invited to my birthday party.

They know that friends come to birthday parties.
