At the Park

Last week at this time you didn't hear me saying, "Geez! The sun's been out for DAYS!  When is it going to rain again?"  And here I am on what feels like the 2,345th day of rain, grumbling about where the sun went.  So since it's raining again today I will post some pictures of a day when the sun was shining and we went to a new park and enjoyed warm shoulders and the smell of Coppertone on our skin.

We met up with other kids that the girls love to play with.

Trying to hang with the big kids....
She did it!

We were at the park all morning last week, playing with the kids and talking to other moms.  It was a nice morning.  We all go to the same church, but it's nice to see these people during the week because I don't get a chance to talk to them on Sundays.  I'm sure I've said this before, but I'm a huge fan of letting my kids run the crazies out while I can talk to adults.  It's always a win-win.  This morning was an example of that.

My favorite part of the day, though, was when Harper and Hadley followed each other over to a part of the park where nobody was and began playing together.  I don't think it was because they weren't having fun with the other kids, or that they chose to only be together.  I like to think that while they love the company of good friends, it's each other they're most comfortable with.

I'm glad they like hanging out with each other.  I hope it's always that way.  I hope that they find joy in the rainy days, too.  Because there's always markers and puzzles to play with, but it's way more fun to do these things together.

Harper's asking Hadley to draw Captain Hook, Mr. Smee (is that his name?) and Co.  Hadley obliges.

Harper is working on a city. 

Maybe the sun will stay out today.  Either way, I think we'll come up with something to do.

That park looks like a lot of fun! I hear you on the rain, starting to get sick of it!
Happy Friday.

Oh, I HOPE my kids get along! Sometimes I want to have another one just to insure that someone likes someone. What if my two don't like each other? That stresses me out to no end.

Here's to more sunshine, hopefully soon!

Wow, Hadley is a really good artist. I'm not sure even Luke is that good at drawing people yet!
