Life as we know it

Our family adventures

At the playground

Leave a comment

This weekend we had a bunch of playground fun. We had some plans that were canceled, so after dinner Mama took the kids to a new playground near our house. They had plenty of fun.

Both kids love the swing. Especially Mr. Peyts! Just look at that smile!
image
Peyton started going down the curly slide, and then Allie started going with him.
image
SO CUTE!
image
And then more swings.

It looked like rain was coming and when it started raining a few drops I decided it was time to go home. Then we got home and the rain stopped! We went over the the neighbors’ house for a few minutes and then it was inside to try the marbled banana bread Allie and I made earlier.

This morning it looked like it was supposed to rain all day. So we got dressed and hurried to the park again so we wouldn’t be stuck inside all day. As it turned out, it started sprinkling as we were driving to the park and it rained a few minutes after we got there, but then it stopped and we played for an hour and a half! We went to the same playground we went to last night.

Both kids spent tons of time on the swings.
image
Allie learned to pump her legs to keep the swing going herself… but she was lazy and preferred to have Mama and Dada push her.
image
This park is on the bike path I run now and we went for a little walk.
image
Its a mile and a half on the path, so we could walk to the park. But we drove because the kids would never last that long on foot. I think they wanted to try today though.

And then we played a little more.
image
Peyton saw Mama climb this ladder, so he wanted to climb. Dada helped and Peyton did really well! Then Dada went to push Allie on the swing and Mama tried to help him climb. But Mama didn’t realize how high up this ladder was at the top. I had to call Dada to help Peyton to the top because I couldn’t reach him! Ooops!
image
Such a big boy!
image
image
Then it was home for lunch. We’ve gotten to a point with Peyton where he tends to not eat unless we have a large chunk of time to devote because he likes to take his sweet time.
image
All day these clouds were floating by, and it did rain a little bit a couple times, but never actually rained. Allie played with the neighbors for a couple hours and Peyton took a three-hour nap! Of course with his long nap he took his sweet time going to sleep tonight!
image
Allie and I ended the evening making cookies. I didn’t have enough flour, so the cookies came out flat, but they taste good!
