My Summer Mission

If you're a mom, you've probably experienced something like this.  You're driving along on your way to someplace very important (a doctor's appointment, the airport, or IKEA) with your preschooler in the back seat.  As you zoom down the street he catches a glimpse of some primary coloured playground equipment in his peripheral vision.  He pleads from the backseat, "We've NEVER been to that playground!!! Can we go there now, PLEASE?"

This scenario repeats itself over and over.  I always have to turn down his requests to stop and play.  There are just more important things to attend to.

But not today.  Today is the first day of summer vacation.  And I have made it my summer mission to visit as many "new" playgrounds as we possibly can.

This one is in our own neighbourhood.  The huge "fallen down tree" has been calling out to him for months.  Today he finally got to climb it.

Bring on summer! Let the fun begin!

Yea! We were not around this day when you texted but totally would have come to play with you... we love having this little park nearby. Maybe after Christmas when my parents are gone we can meet at another "new" park for a play. Miss you guys!

Elizabeth- Every time we're driving back from your house he asks to stop there. So glad we finally got a chance to try it out. Would love to check out another playground with you and your crew after the holidays!
