Park Fun!

Yesterday around lunch time, I told the boys to get their shoes on and go get in the van. I didn't tell them what we were doing(mostly because I was winging it and wasn't totally sure myself!) except that we were going to eat lunch out. Jordan was immediately very excited.

"You mean we're going to eat lunch out again?!? Wow, this is going to be the funnest week EVER!!"

I must usually be the most boring mom around, if fast food twice in the same week makes it the "funnest" week ever. Hmmm, maybe I should work on changing that...

Anyway, we drove through McDonald's and then went to our local park--our local park that though we've lived here almost 11 months, we had not visited yet. (See above reference to my "boring mom" status.)

Joanna with her Sprite from Mickey D's...a rare treat for her!

It's easier to climb up than it is to climb down!

About to try the slide...

Josiah is a blur! (and PLEASE ignore those knees!!)


Jordan wanted me to be sure to capture the precarious nature of his perch here, and therefore prove his extreme bravery. These tires are stacked on a platform 5 feet or so off the ground, so the kids can just drop through them to the ground below. Next time any of you see Jordan, be sure to tell him how brave he is, okay?

Just don't make the mistake of telling him how cute he is, like the lady behind us in line at the grocery store did. He'll get embarrassed and stare at his shoes.

Followed by his funny faces!

Big slide pile up!

Joanna playing with pebbles on a concrete picnic table

Fun on the tire swing!

We will definitely have to come back here again. The boys and Joanna had so much fun!

I think you should feel pretty proud that fast food is a rare treat for your kids - I'm ashamed to say that it's not at our house. :(

...and you don't go to parks because you have a fun yard!

Well, fast food isn't exactly a rare treat here, either. Usually we just make them order the health food--you know, apple dippers and milk instead of Sprite and french fries. Ha!
