Playground Afternoon

Our weather is perfectly warm this week. Loving it! Yesterday I read in the newspaper that March was the coldest we've had in 8 years. I believe it!

Yesterday after Zoe and I picked up Aidan at pre school, we came to my house to have some lunch. I called Greta (she had the day off) to see if she wanted to go to a playground with us. She did. 

I drove to by the Manheim playground. Aidan surprised me when he said "We're going there? I hate that one!" What?? It is all wood mulch and he had his Crocs on his feet. The mulch gets into his shoes and he hates that! Alrighty, then......we went to Mummau Park on the other side of town.

We didn't stay long because it has wood mulch too.
We went way out of town to Rapho Township Park. This one, Aidan told us, is his favorite playground. Yeah, we hit it right this time!
Zoe enjoys this see-saw bouncy thing because.....
Aidan is standing on the other end to give a good bounce!


It was really warm and the sun was bright. They had fun!

Today is another nice day. I have lots of things I wish to get done. I also just realized that I forgot I had a telephone appointment with an agency for Ellen yesterday that I missed because I went to the playground. Believe me, I'm kicking myself....how could I have forgotten that??? My brain is becoming mush now that I'm not constantly stressed with running a department. Ugh.

It will be a good day. I hope to sit on the swing sometime today and read....but I need to stay near the kitchen phone waiting for a call back to set up another appointment. I am sooooo embarrassed!

Ahem. That's what lists are for. Sorry. just had to get that in there! So where is the Rapho park?

This weather is just incredible. We're supposed to have just 40 degrees on Saturday, but back up to the 60's for next week.

Aidan and Zoe are so cute. I'm glad they had some warm sunshine to play in. It will do you good to read on the swing. You have a lot on your mind - it's easy to forget an appt.

The coldest March in eight years. 2005. That's interesting. No wonder I was in such a mood for getting rid of our big, old farmhouse!

That's exactly what I would have done... keep going to Park after Park until I got it right:) They are soooo sweet playing, I know they appreciated you taking them!

Don't be embarrassed about missing the appointment, we have ALL done that at one time or another!

BIG HUGS to you my "far away" friend!

Sweet children at play in the park(s) are a sure sign of spring. We are enjoying warmer temps now.
