To say we've had some cloudy, rainy weather is an understatement. I actually don't remember when the sun shone it's shine last. I do know that it's supposed to today. We have our fingers crossed. In between rain showers this week, I took the girls to the park. Peanut had been begging to play at the playground. We ventured to a new-to-us little playground that I heard about from some other moms at my church's mom's group. It is perfect. We loved it. Perfect size. Big shady trees. There are still a couple of parks that we haven't been to, can you believe it? This is the town of parks!
The girls played in the muddy mulch. I didn't mind. This is something that pre-Pumpkin I would have not let happen. She has taught me to pick my battles. There's not much a wet wipe can't clean up and if it can't, soap and water can when we get home.
Peanut had an exciting accomplishment on our park visit. She went down the big slide! She has had quite a fear of big slides since last summer when she went down a slide, caught her foot on it and flipped forward. She didn't get hurt but it scared her from going down the big slides again.
During our visit this week, she made her way to the top of a very tall spiral slide and down she went! I couldn't believe it. She went down it at least a dozen times announcing how much fun it was. I was so proud of her because I know exactly how she felt. She is so much like her mommy. Things have to be well thought out and planned before action is taken. She gets it honestly!
Check out that beaming proud face!!! We have made quite a big deal out of this accomplishment and her bravery!
