The other day, my husband had to fix one of our cars so the kids and I were by ourselves for the evening. Bummer! I was really looking forward to seeing him and so were the kids. I decided to make sandwiches for supper and grabbed a bag of chips from the pantry. One of the kids asked if they could eat outside, and I said "YES! How about we go to the park and have a picnic supper?" They were all very excited & got in the car and we drove to the park. It was a little chilly but the sun made it bearable. I am a wimp when it comes to the weather and being outside in it.
When we got there they grabbed some food and started eating... but the playground toys looked too exciting to wait so they ate as fast as they could and jumped on the merry-go-round.
I didn't realize that Kaia was still eating until I saw her come around as I took the picture.
Nora was so excited... and I was excited that the equipment was mostly all her size! I didn't have to follow her around quite so much and could just enjoy my food and take pictures!
We tried this park out the once before and it is now one of my favorites. Partly because all of them like it, and partly because there is never anyone there! Don't get me wrong, it is fun to go to parks and socialize with other kids and parents, but sometimes it is also nice to just enjoy each other without having to make small talk. I guess that is the introvert in me.
Nora wanted to swing and Ethan wanted to push her... She LOVED it!
Until he pushed her a little too high for her comfort. :)
Ethan was trying to teach Kien how to go down the pole like a fireman but he would have nothing to do with it.
Everyone had a good time and it was nice to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather! I am trying to savor spring before summer hits and it gets too hot outside! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Happy Friday!
