Mom, Dad & I took a quick trip down to St. Louis for a few days. We were just hanging out in the hotel room when suddenly, my parents had a crazy idea.
They started putting some funny underwear on me (not that I really minded).
Then they added some new shorts. It’s all good though. Cool new clothes are always fun. However, these seemed a little different somehow. I’ve been reading some books about different animals and I know elephants have trunks…but why would you put trunks on me?
We went into this big room with what looked like a giant bathtub. Dad jumped in and took me with him!
I wasn’t sure what to think at first but I got the hang of this whole swimming thing pretty quickly. Here is my butterfly. While the pool wasn’t quite olympic size, I do think I could hold my own against Michael Phelps in the 100 fly in a few years.
Here I am working on my abs of steel. Check out those leg lifts!
Once Mom jumped in, things really started to pick up. She’s so much fun. That girl makes me smile every time!
Here I am showing Dad some of the finer points of thumb sucking. I could probably earn a gold medal in that event, too.
Mommy sometimes thinks I can walk on water. While I’m occasionally inclined to believe her, it didn’t quite work out this time.
So I went back to swimming.
…and sucking my thumb.
All in all, it was a pretty good experience. We got dried off…
Then Dad couldn’t help but take a few more pictures.
Back at the room I became acquainted with this blue spa towel. He was grrrreat!
Later, I could have sworn I heard him say something about my mom so I had to rough him up a bit.
