Tori The Do-er

Tori-the-Doer was back in action this weekend. After dinner at the hotel on Friday, we went to the water park and Tori went immediately to the water slides. Down she went as fast as she could. She played in the kiddie pool for awhile and then went to the bigger slides by the dumping bucket. She hopped down the slides without her brother's hesitation. Back up again for another run. Once she heard the bell ring for the bucket dump, she'd run over to get water dumped all over her. She'd try various ways standing, sitting, kneeling, laying when the bucket fell. Once she was soaked from the bucket she'd come running over to us with the biggest smile. It only got to be a problem when she would miss the bucket dump and she would throw a fit. She also loved putting her face in the water and trying to swim under water. The girl is a fish and her water soaked smile coming up from swimming would completely show you her love of water.

Skiing for her was just as fun. She was eager to try, even though her boots had too much snow to get her ski's on to begin with. She was slow walking in the boots, which helped get them caked in snow. I scraped the snow off and eventually got the ski's on. Tori happily went in line and up the magic carpet. She fell over a few times. On one occasion, she got off the carpet and was helped to catch up with the group by being pushed. However, the person let go and Tori took off down the hill with no one holding on! Luckily the other instructor stopped her before she fell or ran into something or someone. All the activity tuckered her out and she was ready to call it quits. We went back to the water park that night for more of the same fun and she had milk and cookies with Chip too. Early Sunday morning though, the cry went out, "I Want To Go To My Poooooooooooooool!".
