There's this other reason we absolutely love going to The Beach Club... they have awesome poolside activities for the kids every day!
So, while JinJin laid poolside, and I read this awesome book,...
And we watched the Blue Angels show off in the sky, ...
the little girls first got hair wraps. And then tattooos, and then....
it was time for SPIN ART!!! I thought this was the funnest activity!
They gave the kids one design for free.
They just aimed the nozzle of the paint bottle into a hold on the grate over the card. The box on the right was to pain on frisbees. My girls just wanted to do the cards, thank goodness, cause the line was WAAAY longer on the right!
Let's put it this way, I liked the project so much that I called the office and gave them the go ahead to order one for us too!! I thought we HAD to have that at MMPT!!
And not only that, but I also convinced Gabbi to have a Spin Art birthday party in August. Obsess much?!
It was a rarity, but this was one of those unique moments when the girls were posed up and facing AND smiling at the camera!! WOW!
There were also painted ceramics, glitter tattoos, and painting sand dollars.
See that girl right there, helping Gabbi!? Well, her name was Xavess. And she fast became Ellie's favorite person. In fact, as the week wore on, if someone wanted into the middle pool, which normally requires a photo ID to prove that the additional fee was paid to access the area),they'd get Ellie to escort them there, because she was known by all the workers there, and in particular Xavess.
Later in the week, she and Ellie got matching glitter heart tattoos on their ankles. Yes, seriously!
One evening, when we were walking to the restaurant on the grounds, we passed a security guard who said, "Hey, Ellie Sue", as we passed. I was like, HUH?! He said, I met her the other day with Xavess. Seems Ellie would sit at the counter with Xavess and basically made all kinds of friends. She cracks me up. Meets NO stranger!
I tried to career coach Xavess, and I think she might come and stay with us someday and shadow me in PT. She knows she wants to work with kids, and I don't think that many people who have that stipulation actually think about physical therapy. It was one of my "must haves" too. I had a very wise guidance counselor!
And now would ya look at THAT!? I love it.
Gabs's turned out to look just like a really close up eyeball!!
And by the way, I'm home now. And I have TONS of pics to share, so get ready. That likely means multiple posts, so keep up. And comment!! It's a two way street, ya know!
