One of the downfalls to having triplets is that until they reach a certain age, you can't "just go" to the park. Because they're like cats - crazy, fast, rascally, disobedient, little cats. And keeping them all in your sights at a park is like herding cats. So I don't go to places like that alone. Yet. In good time, I will. But for now, we're just glad that Aunt Mary is right around the corner and is always ready and willing to help with the herd.
Conveniently, there's a quaint little park just behind our neighborhood and it's never really that busy and has a fun play structure for the kids!
So we made some lunches, and then hit the park! We had a little picnic and then mid-way through lunch, the kids decided they were ready to play! Sayonara peanut butter and jelly! We've got some playing to do!
See that giant cattle gate right there? Yeah, Ethan ran SMACK into it. It didn't go well.
And somehow, when I wasn't looking, my kids grew up. They learned how to climb up, and go down the slide ALL THEIR BUH-SELVES.
Honest to God, I could feel my heart swelling with pride as their little arms and legs climbed the rungs to big boy and girl-hood!
And they were SO excited to find bleachers again!
If you recall, they found bleachers with Nana and Papa Bunch not too long ago so this was extra exciting for them!
Run pregnant lady, run! Ah ha ha!!
Watching Hunter run is about the funniest thing I've ever seen. That girl's got a spring in her step for sure!
She was consoling Ethan because he was mad that I pulled him away from the water fountain. (There was a bee following us, what was I to do? )
Bye Bye Park! See you again!
