Time to Play in Nick's Pool!

It is almost the end of June. It has rained almost every day during the month of June. Nick has watched the rain from the window, and sometimes mommy let Nick play outside in the rain.

But today was a beautiful sunny day. Daddy said to Nick, "I have finished your pool, it is ready for you to play." Nick put on his bathing suit and went outside to play in his pool!

Even though the water was cold Nick jumped in and splashed in the water.

Nick also played on his "blue boat." It is a bed for the pool, and Nick likes to climb on top and float. Sometimes he likes to lie down and listen to the sounds of the water.

But not for long. Then he jumps off and screeches his voice and splashes water some more!

The Long Beach Art Show

On Sunday mommy and Nick went into town to visit The Long Beach Art Show. We go every year. Artists set up booths in Kennedy Plaza in front of City Hall. Some people show pictures, some people show drawings and some people have paintings. Mommy and Nick walk up and down the aisles and look at all of the beautiful art work.

Nick especially loves images of New York City.

We found a booth where a woman named Christina showed her pictures of Long Beach. We spent a lot of time there because Nick loves pictures of Long Beach. She made a book with her pictures and we were looking at the book when Nick saw there was also a little postcard book. Luckily mommy had some money in her pocket so we bought the postcard book.

Then we went to Burger King and we looked at the pictures. Nick especially liked the pictures of the buildings on the Long Beach Boardwalk. He pointed to the pictures and mommy told him the streets and the names of the buildings and Nick repeated them back.

When we came home Nick was playing with his little camera. Mommy said "maybe someday you will make your own book of pictures of Long Beach!"

Another Day in New York City

On Saturday there was no AHRC. When Nick woke up mommy said "would you like to go to New York City?" Nick had a big smile on his face, he has not gone to New York City in lots of weeks and he loves to visit grammy's house.

First we walked to the train station and took the LIRR to Penn Station. It is a long ride and Nick did good sitting and quiet voice most of the time.

Then we got french fries and walked to mommy's work. Nick loves to look out the windows, he can see all of New York City.

Then we took the train uptown. When we get off the train at 96th Street there is a playground where Nick likes to play. Nick was happy the sprinklers were on. Mommy thought that might happen and brought Nick a bathing suit so he could play in the water. Nick played for a long time in the sprinkler and on the swing and slides.

Then we walked to grammy's house. Nick saw that grammy has a new computer. He didn't waste any time at all, he was on YouTube watching movies right away. Then mommy went out to buy pizza and other things to eat. All three of us had dinner together at the table.

Then it was time to go home. Grammy walked us to the bus stop and we waited for the bus. When the bus arrived we gave grammy hugs and kisses good bye. Mommy paid with her MetroCard while Nick ran to back of the bus to get us seats.

Then we got to Penn Station and took the train home to Long Beach. We got home in the night time and it was already time to get ready for bed. When we were getting ready for bed mommy reminded Nick about the things we did together during the day.
