When the weather started getting warm, I was a little nervous about how I was going to manage watching the girls at the park when we go, but it has turned out to not be so bad. Hadley can do just about everything so I don't need to climb after her like I did last year. And while Harper likes to do a little bit of everything at the park, her favorite things are to climb up and down stairs, sit on benches, and pick flowers.
Still, it's nice when Jesse comes because then we can bring the tricycle and we can take pictures. Yesterday we went to Hadley park, one that the girls and I go to a lot during the week. We've been going to this park since Hadley was about 5 or 6 months old, but it is just this spring that Hadley has begun thinking it's her park. I can't blame her, but we do have the same conversation every time we pull into the parking lot. No, this isn't your park, you just have the same name as it. Yes, other kids will be there and no, it is not your equipment so you'll have to let them slide down slides, etc. It's a tough lesson to learn.
Anyway, on to the pictures.
I realize that there are more pictures of Harper then there are of Hadley. That is because it is very hard to photograph Hadley at the park. She spends most of her time running from one piece of equipment to the next. There isn't time to waste! Going to the park is like work for her. She has to make sure she gets to everything.
When I grow up I want to be a writer. I practice a lot on my two blogs, Notes from Naptime and Sit A While. Sometimes what I write gets into magazines. My work has been in Christian School Teacher, Christian Home and School, the online magazine Mommy Times, and The Banner.
