Yesterday I put on my Fun Mom hat and took the kids to a great park downtown. We had never visited America the Beautiful park, but it was amazing and I'm sure we'll go again...especially if fun friends join us!
At 10:00 a.m. we started out on the playground, where my monkey boys climbed and swung and spun and jumped all over the place. Lexi wanted to share a swing with Kate, which was too cute to resist. And of course the kids busted out their lunches at 10:30 a.m. because they were s.t.a.r.v.i.n.g.
The water was awesome. Even Kate loved it. Zach chose her swimming suit because it was patriotic like the park's name.
I loved talking with my friends, and quite miraculously, the kids lasted long enough for me to have actual conversations.
In the end, the only real negative was leaving a nice towel on the park bench. This is progress.
