When I do it I'm always glad I did. It's just getting up and out the door that gets me everytime. :-) This morning I took my girls to the park. We loaded up the double stroller with Teddy Grahams and juice and headed out. There is an elementary school just a hop, skip and a jump away from our home so that's where we went. N1 was in heaven. I pushed her on the swing until my arm couldn't take it anymore. Then we came over to the blanket where N2 was and had a little snack. I introduced her to those Keebler crackers with the spreadable cheese ... every child eats those growing up. :-) Then she and Baa went and slid down the slide. She would put Baa at the top and slide him down and then she would ask him if he was okay ... just making sure he didn't get too beat up in the mulch at the bottom of the slide. Then she would come down, dust her best buddy off and off they would go again.
While going to the park is not at the top of my favorite things to do (hot, bugs, hot, sweaty, hot), it was such a fun time with the girls. And, since I didn't have a car today, I'm so thankful that there is a great little playground not far from my house that we can walk to when we really need to get out and burn some energy. Everyday simple things like taking your children to the park ... what a blessing and memory that I will treasure, even when they are too old for me to push on the swing.
