The weather has been beautiful and spring like around here for the past 5 days.
Z, his dad and I have spent at least 3 out of the past 5 days at the park. Z LOVES the swing, and thinks the slide is just ok. What he loves most, though is watching the other kids playing. He's fascinated by the bike riding kids the most. I can almost see him licking his lips in anticipation of the day that he gets to ride a bike and have me running after him screaming: GETBACKHERESLOWDOWNNOW!!!!!
I hope that Z grows up to be an active, outdoor kid. I used to babysit kids that never wanted to go outside and play- they just wanted board games and tv. I so hope he doesn't grow up like that! I want him to bug me every day to go to the park and play outside. I want him to set up his T-ball set in the backyard and smash balls off the house (not windows...house). I want him to splash around in his kiddie pool and run through the sprinkler. That's the kind of kid I hope he grows up to be.
For fun, here's some pics taken on Sunday:
Swinging with his dad. He pushes him too high. I get upset. Z laughs and claps for more. Hm.
Z and me. He looks bored. He was having fun- I SWEAR! He must be distracted by a kid on a bike or something...
