Playing at the park

We took advantage of the nice weather and decided to head down to the park to play with some friends yesterday. The park we had planned on going to was under construction, so it was closed. We went to a new park we had never been to and my kiddos loved it! Lots of tall trees and space to run. Of course, tall trees mean lots of squirrels, which John just loved chasing. His strategy was one of trying to sneak up on the squirrel and then when it ran up the tree, he'd scream at it. I guess he was hoping the squirrel would change his mind about scampering up the tree and come back down. Sad to say, his technique didn't work and he wasn't able to capture ANY squirrels. Oh well, all the more reason to try again. They had this cool rope climbing thing-here's the kids at the top. I kept thinking one of them was going to fall, but nobody did, thank goodness.

Here's the big kids on the swings, chatting away. They found lots of cool spots to explore, too,
over in the wooded areas.
Eden's job seemed to be getting dirty-do you like the nice dirt moustache she's sporting here? This was just after we fished her shoes out of one of the trash cans. Apparently, they looked like they needed to be thrown away.

My kids are all asking when we're going again. I must say, I love the fresh air and time outdoors-and the fun of seeing them play. We'll visit again soon!

  1. That looks like a great park!

    What is it about that age, like around 18 mos. to 3 or so. Mine always need at least two baths a day. LOL!
