This week we're spending every possible minute outside. Even though it's been extra warm the last few days, it's been ridiculously windy too. Not the type of day I can sit outside and read a book while the kids play. Those are my favorites! Luckily, the wind hasn't slowed them down or made them want to come inside. But it has dried out the kids' eyes and every time Sam wakes up more dirt has worked it's way out of his eyes. Poor kid. It might be because Chris never finished the sand box part of our playground out back, so instead the kids have taken all their sandbox toys out to dig in the dirt. All day long.
Yesterday we hit the parks in Valley Center. Then we went by our church to the empty fenced in area that will soon become a playground. We've ordered some equipment and now we're just waiting for it to arrive so we can begin assembling it. The kids are almost as excited as I am! I was taking measurements, and the kids were just running around. It's amazing that kids can have a ton of fun in an empty fenced in area.
Today we went to our favorite park, Sunrise Park (in Sedgwick County Park). If you haven't been there, you're missing a lot - and I don't say that lightly. It's a "boundless park" which means it's more accessible for all kids. My kiddos LOVE the swing where they can all swing together.
And perfect for Sophia, there are a ridiculous amount of things to climb on, hang from, and spin around on. The only problem with this park is it's huge. Like, lose your children huge. Like, wear matching shirts so you can find each other huge. So I always pair Sophia and Anna up together, and then manage Sam and Isabella myself. They come home happy and worn out just in time for lunch and naps. Can't beat that! Here's hoping tomorrow's another warm day!
