Now that school is out...I have enjoyed just over a week of having both girls home everyday and I am already starting to count the days until "back to school". (well, not really, but you get what I mean).
We've been enjoying the weather before it becomes intolerable. Now is the time to enjoy the parks or any outdoor activity because in July, once it hits 9am, the slides and about everything on the playground becomes so hot that one just cannot slide down, sit on or climb, without having the hot plastic sear you.
No, once July hits, we all melt away by 10am.
...so we have found a local playground that is different and even has some large awnings overtop of it, so we can catch a bit of shade.
The girls call it the "Rope Park" because they have this Eiffel looking rope tower for the kids to climb.
Once again, I find it very interesting to watch the girls play.
Bryn is very active...she climbs, runs, sings and just does not stop. She will actively look for the highest, most dangerous piece of equipment to climb and proceed to give me a heart attack as I watch her praying she doesn't plummit to her death or what looks like a big enough fall to break a bone.
Ava on the otherhand, sorta wanders.
She observes... alot and cautiously climbs some things. It almost looks like playing on the climbers is a chore for her and she'd rather be in the air conditioned house reading her trashy magazines and eating bon-bons...oh wait, that's me.
Behold- Ava's playface. (which also happens to be the same one as her grumpy face and her happy face).
Either way, it makes them hot and tired and we all know a good kid is a tired kid!
