While we keep moving every few years we at least get to keep trying out new parks. We have already been to the city park, which isn’t all that great other then the swings. This Saturday we tried out the school park. I was having an awful few days and figured we all needed to get out of the house. So I packed snacks and headed to the park with the kids.
This park is full of monkey bars. I realize it was made for school kids for recess but my goodness! It isn’t very kid friendly.
James is almost 5, Gideon is 3 1/2 and Faith is 1 1/2
Even though most of the park is monkey bars they love this little bridge. We play “The three billy goats gruff”. Guess who gets to be the ugly troll? 😉
This park also has three slides all in a row. This is also a lot of fun. Because we were the only people at the park I let them take off their shoes and climb up them.
Going to the park really helped our moods. However we had some major falls that were really scary. I am so glad the kids are alright. Here is my facebook post when we got home.
“Today I decided to blow off everything I needed to do this morning and take the children to the park. They had not been out of the house since Monday and I had only left once all week for a brief appointment. We had fun except Faith had a major fall, from pretty high up, and landed straddling the handrail which flipped her over and landed on her face. I honestly don’t know why we didn’t have to run to the ER and have her put in a body cast. Other then some bruises and scrapes she seems fine (I have been closely watching her walk all day). She cried not even 5 min. Less then 10 minutes after Faith fell James had a pretty bad fall out of a swing. His mommy might have pushed him too hard. He seriously flew through the air head first and landed on his face. Amazingly the skin was not broken. He also cried less then five minutes. Gideon was the only one that didn’t get hurt at the park, however this evening James knocked Gideon over and I think he bit through his top lip. Blood on both top and bottom of his top lip. the cut its self seems to be pretty small, so I think he will be fine. I am over this day and injuries! I can not believe how fast kids recover from falls! If any one of the top things happens to me I would be at the doctor or at the very least the chiro whining about all my pain. Giving thanks today that every one seems to be alright.”
Sadly by 11 it was so hot we had to leave to get out of the sun. There is no shade at this park. But the kids and I had fun, and when we got home Daddy had cleaned the whole house for me! 😀
