Saturday Night Park Date

When I was little, I remember that getting to go to the park as real treat.  As kid who lived in the country, the closest park to us was about 7 miles away, so it wasn't like we could just walk there or take our bikes.

I remember being envious of my friends who lived "in town" and could ride their bikes to the park.  Although we had a pretty nice swing-set with monkey bars in our the back yard (that we spent hours on), getting to go to the park was still fun.
*Side note -- I tried to do the monkey bars last weekend, and IT'S SO HARD now!  Monkey barring in your thirties is definitely harder than monkey barring in your tweens. 
**New goal this summer -- be able to do the monkeys bars with poise. 

Anyways, I digress.

Ellis is now fortunate to live near a handful of parks that are within walking distance or just a few miles from our house, and I'm looking forward to being able to reward him with "park days" this summer.

I also have lofty visions of meeting other local moms/my friends at the park and sipping coffee while we let our kiddo burn off some steam.  Any takers?  ;)

Last Saturday night, Zac & I took Ellis on a dinner & park date.  Just as we got to the park, the sun started to hide behind the clouds and the wind started whipping.  It got rather cold in a hurry, but we still had a nice evening with Bubs -- I'm not sure that his smile left his face the entire night.

After the park, we walked down to the beach & let Ellis explore a bit.   Hi filled his shoes with sand, found two seashells & was happy as a clam.

Safe to say, I think he's gonna like the park -- maybe as much as his momma!
