This little pool is by one of the parks near us. We went for the first time a few days a go. The girls had a pretty good time. Avery wouldn't go near the sprayers. We had been there for about 45 minutes when this little girl came right up into Avery's face and was trying to talk to her. She was saying hello and asking if Avery wanted to be her best friend. Avery was hiding in my shoulder. I had to explain that Avery is shy. The little girl was not deterred. She moved right on to Ashby and started saying the same thing. She kept asking if Ashby wanted to be her best friend. It was rather humorous to watch. Ashby wouldn't say anything, she just stood there. Looking back, I don't think that Ashby even knows what a best friend is. The experience changed both girls' moods for the rest of the day. We had to leave right after that because they were both so cranky. I thought to myself "Yikes, are we starting this already!"
