Chloe’s Birthday: Part Two – Not, Not Getting Wet!
After the trains, we decided a trip to the park was in order. I did try to persuade Harry to stay out of the adjacent paddling pool. Typically, he led the way straight in with little sister running behind excitedly shouting, “Bath, bath!” There was nothing else for it but to kick the shoes off and go in too.
Now – all self respecting Little Trekkers will know that Spotty Otter waterproofs can stand up to a deluge and a half. However, everyone/thing has their limits and the paddling pool proved to be Spotty Otter’s. (Not that waterproofs are designed for paddling in - that would be what a wetsuit is for – silly Mummy for leaving them out when I was busy packing Nana’s car with everything but the kitchen sink).
Harry decided the best thing was just to strip off and get on with it (I’ve spared you the photos!) but Chloe’s suit kept her warm enough to enjoy a post-splash (in her case, swim!) ice-cream.
Back in the car, everything was stripped off and my two naked Little Trekkers got snuggled up in Nana’s tartan blankets before heading home for a warm bath and some birthday cake!Happy birthday, Chloe – here’s to many more years of fun!
