So today after school I surprised my oldest two by having everything ready to go to the park when they got off the bus. My 3 year old did all the packing, he was so excited – he couldn’t wait for the kids to get home. He must have opened the door to check if they were there over a dozen times in one hour. Good thing the a/c wasn’t on then…
It was a semi warm day today (somewhere around 26 C) and seeing as I found out today that I only have 5 weeks left of my maternity leave…. I wanted to do something outdoors and fun right away.
We packed up chicken wings, watermelon and iced tea. Good food for a good day. The park we went to has a playground but also a water “feature”, sprays water if you wave your hand over a button. Hardly a park around here has an outdoor pool anymore.
The kids had a blast! JZ (10 months today) quickly got over his dislike for grass and even played in the cold water sprinklers. Even though we were there for only a couple of hours, they couldn’t stop saying how much fun it was. My 3 year old was so proud of himself for ‘planning’ this day!! I love these moments, to see a smile on their faces (and doesn’t cost a penny)!!
Tomorrow is going to be around 33 C….. I wonder what we’ll do???
