A fun day for Liam

We went to a neighbor's 2 year birthday party this afternoon. They had beach balls all over, bubbles blowing and even a wading pool for splashing! Liam played with the beach balls for awhile then eventually migrated over to the little pool of water and really drenched himself. Each time he'd splash himself with the cold water, he'd get this look:



OR this one:


It didn't take long for the shivering to kick in. My friend went and got him a towel to snuggle in, so we could get the chills under control. Liam was swaddled like a tiny baby in my lap as we shared pinwheel finger sandwiches, fresh fruit and then birthday cake. He was cold enought that he didn't even try to break free from the towel to grab any food off the plate himself.

A little later I let him down to participate in the pinata activity and here is what he did as he watched everyone else have fun:


I scooped him up in the towel once again to warm up. Then he saw the candy fall to the ground and he got down to get his fair share...


I picked him up again until it was his turn to pin the tail on the donkey. He was 4th in line so he could figure it out by watching the other kids first. We didn't blindfold him like the others and he still was the farthest away from the donkey's behind!


After we had Zachery open his gift early, we headed home to warm up. Liam immediately stopped shivering when I put him in the hot car. Ah, I am sure that felt so good!

What a fun time for you and Liam! The shivering is so cute - even though the poor baby was COLD! I love the pictures and your blog. I get a kick out of hearing about your little guy (who is only 4 days older than mine). I can totally relate... :)

Awww so cute! I know just what you mean about warming them up after. My son got soaked in a tug of war game last Saturday and had a blast but couldn't wait to get into some warm clothes!

Hugs,
