48 inches!

Today is a HUGE day for Travis. For the first time in the three years that we've been going to this particular water park, he was tall enough to ride the big waterslide solo. He wanted to reach this height so badly, I can't even describe it. Telling him that he had to eat healthy foods so he could grow tall enough was a great motivator even in the winter months. Today was the first time we've been to the water park this year and the first order of business was to go get measured at the lifeguard station. I watched the process and it was close! (I don't think I'll be getting his hair cut anytime soon in fear it might put him under the mark!)

He was so ecstatic when he measured 48" and got his hand stamped. I was lucky to get him to pose for a picture with the slide in the background. Needless to say, as soon as I clicked it he was off for the first of many solo slides!
