So this week it seems that Mother Nature has finally gotten her act together and given us a string of beautiful days in the mid-to-high 80's. That means playground time! We are lucky enough to live just down the street from our neighborhood's playground & pool area. It's great because we don't have to pack everyone up and drive down to the amenities, we can just walk. I pity the moms on the other side of the 'hood who have to load everyone in the car to get to the playground and pool. I'd probably lose my keys at the park.
So yesterday after our weekly run to The Wal*Mart we took a stroll down to the playground to run off some excess energy. I love watching Mase and Zoey interact. They are so funny together. Here are a few scenes from yesterday that made me giggle.
Step 1: Stick a toddler on top of a slide.
Mase has been trying to work up the nerve to slide down the fireman's pole on the playground for about a year now. He is not a fan of heights, just like his mom. Finally he did it. He slid all the way down.
Mase took one look at her on that pole and promptly put a stop to it. He told her that "poles are no place for girls". I snorted my drink up my nose when I heard him. I know he didn't realize exactly what he was saying but damn, it was funny. Matt wholeheartedly approved. Zoey's face when he told her to get off the pole was hysterically funny.
I guess we don't have to worry about Zoey when she gets older. Mase will keep her in line. Ha!
The kids had a blast. I got a ton of great pictures in the hour that we were there.
We had a great time and both kids took long naps when we got home. There will be many more playground trips in the near future if it means afternoon naps.
