Water play

What is it about water that delights so much? Even if it is shiveringly cold? The littles saw Ryan's bathwater from the night before (yes, I know we should have drained it away...) and made a beeline for it before I could say, "Shiver me timbers!" The water was cold from being left out for a day but that deterred them not one bit.

Ryan wanted to play with his robot fish - it is a battery-powered fish that swims through the water which we bought in Jakarta. It is a clown fish and it is very realistic! He set it off in the water and babydoll kept fishing it out - that's some real good hand-eye coordination there!

Other than that, they played with our usual stock of bathtub entertainment - foam letters and numbers as well as some animal puzzle shapes which Alicia gave to Ryan.

Splashing about was inevitable and it wasn't long before the two of them got soaked. Babydoll sealed the deal by climbing into the tub. That was when I decided to strip them both and get the hot water going, so no more photos after that!

I think we must have spent about an hour there, all in all? All this because Richard left us to our own devices while he went for his company's annual D&D. See all the fun you missed, Papa!
