Sooo yesterday we wake up to a light covering of snow and today was beautiful. It was windy but beautiful. No traces of snow anywhere. Hubby and I decided to take advantage of today's weather and go to the park. Well, we were not the only ones with this idea as we quickly realized. The park was probably the most crowed I had ever seen it. I can't blame them, the weather has been crazy cold so it was nice to get out and stretch our legs.
I took my two monsters to the playgrounds. This particular park has several to choose from. I tried 3 that are within eyesight of each other and are most popular. Did they wanna swing? no. Did they wanna slide? no. Climb? no. Sebastian wanted to simply walk and run while Skylar was not really doing anything, so I took them to a nice area to run around. A field back behind the playgrounds. This went over perfectly. Both kids ran and chased each other, raced, etc. It was so excited for me to watch them have so much fun just existing with nature. No DSi, no games, no technology, just a romp in the field.
( OK Mini-Rant!!: Days like today really make me realize how much I am irritated by the growing gas prices. I can no longer afford to do simple things like this and drive to the park as much anymore. Grrr. END Rant)
