Park Playing

Ahhh, the joys of summer. You get to go to the playground for a picnic and fun in the sun with good friends. That's exactly what we did yesterday. After swimming lessons we met up with some friends at the park for lunch and fun. The kids played on the playground and in the splash pad (different park from the one we went to on Monday). The older kids are able to just go off on their own for the most part, but I had to spend the afternoon chasing after CJ. That's okay though, it's fun to watch him experience things for the first time anyways. Most of the pictures I got yesterday of course were of him, but I did get some of the older two and my friends kids too. My friends son is 5 (he'll be 6 in October). He does not like the water at all or getting wet. He did decide to "get his feet wet" eventually though. So I captured a little of his attempt to get into the water without getting too wet. And yes, he managed to just got his feet and a little bit of the bottom of his shorts wet. I love that boy dearly. He's funny and oddly enough reminds me a lot of myself when I was his age. Had to do it in my own way and my own time and on my own terms. It was a fun exhausting day though. Only three more weeks of days like this.
