I knew that she would love playing in the water. She had fun pouring it out of the containers and splashing. Grandma was worried because she kept trying to put the toys in her mouth. Even though the water was clean and sanitized, it probably wasn't a good idea. It's hard for Piper to understand that these were different toys, and even though she can do this at home in the bathtub, she can't here.
She also really liked the sand table and spent quite a bit of time there. She wasn't sure if the feel of sand on her arm was okay or not though. It seemed to bother her and we had to keep brushing it off. She was very serious and studious as she explored in the sand. I wish we had a house so I could get her a sand and water table to play with in the backyard.
Of course she loved the physical activities. There were tunnels and padded things to crawl on. She climbed the stairs to go down the slide and loved stacking up the giant blocks just to knock them down again. This was one of the under two areas, and it was nice she wasn't running around with the bigger kids for once.
She also played in the kitchen,where once again she put everything in her mouth. But hey, that's what you do with pretend food, is pretend to eat it. Duh Grandma! We smelled and planted flowers, picked some vegetables, and rode an airplane.
Finally, at the end of the visit we rode the carousel.
