Fall weather = Park weather!

Since the weather has been nice in the morning for the last week, I decided to brave the park with Sakura. She LOVES (if there was a stronger word I'd use it) to swing and she was super excited when we got out of the car and headed toward the picnic table for a bite before we played. She spotted the playground and said "Weeeee Weeeee Weeeee". Yes, it melted my heart. So we sat at the picnic table enjoying our pumpkin muffin tops that we picked up on our way, then it was off to swing and play. Sakura would love nothing more than to swing the day away - maybe she'll get a swingset for her birthday? We'll see.

Pumpkin muffin tops are delicious!
Let's Go Mom!

Almost running to the swings (note she's got her sunglasses in her hand).

Swinging - Weee, Weee, Weee - Sakura said it over and over.
As you can tell by that smile, Sakura truly loves to swing!

Now with my sunglasses!

This picture cracked me up!

This time Sakura walked in herself - bittersweet! It's amazing to see how much she has grown and changed in just a couple months - the last time we went, she was barely toddling - now she just about runs in...she walked up and down the different areas as you'll see below.

Looking around, what should we do?

Climbing is always fun!

This way...

She stumbled a bit and she does NOT like stuff on her hands, had to pause to get the dirt off.

Leaving the playground.....

Is NEVER fun! Ugh - sorry Sakura but it's getting hot outside :(

Looks like a great day at the park. So much fun! My new favourite photo is that silly face on the swing. Makes me laugh! And that last photo... poor Sakura-Chan. Tell her Auntie Misty will take her next time and she can stay as long as she wants :)

I don't think there is child on Earth that doesn't like the playground. Savannah used to throw a fit when we had to leave. Seth is still pretty laid back about it. I think a swing set is a great second birthday present. Savannah got one for her third birthday.

Cute pictures at the park! Sakura looked so happy on the swings! Isn't that the best?! I'm impressed that she sat down to eat before playing on the playground! I'm not sure we could contain Cameron if the slides (his favorite) are right there! So sad when you have to leave.
