A Day At the Park

This past Sunday was a beautiful Spring day here in Northern Virginia, and we decided to take advantage of the nice weather to take Leya to the playground at a nearby school. As you might suspect, a good time was had by all ...

Contrary to what you might think from her face, Opa did, in fact, take a shower today...

Mama was having fun, too. Really.

I know why hamsters like these things!

You know, I could get up a lot more speed if Mama and Oma would just back off ...

Ohhhh!! A puddle!! Gotta check it out...

Hmmm...if we take some of that water ... and add fistfuls of wood chips ... it's not quite as cool as the cornstarch and water, but it's not bad!

My Opa thinks I'm a real swinger!

If Mama would just stop worrying, I could show her I've got this balance beam thing nailed!

Oh, oh ... this slide is a little higher and steeper than I thought ...

But oh, heck - let's go for it!

And Oma still seems to have a little energy left, so maybe we can do some airplane rides...

Yes, there's nothing quite like a day at the playground with a 19-month-old toddler to make you feel young again. Or a lot older.

But it's all worth it.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.
