A Day at the Park

You probably wouldn't believe the ferocious thunderstorm we had the night before I took these, judging from how sunny and calm it looks in these pictures. But believe me, we had some exciting weather around here Thursday night. Good thing ER and I were out at my parents' house, as our neighborhood lost power and traffic lights were out all over too. Last week ER and I were at home while Brad was off in Boston living it up at a conference at Harvard. I packed our days so we'd be out and about and so the time would pass more quickly. I think I planned too much because by Friday, when these were taken we were both beat! We needed a slower paced afternoon like this. We spent Thursday night at my parents' house. The next morning we enjoyed breakfast and then my Dad and I took ER to a nearby park and walked around the pond there. ER wasn't too happy about it, as she was anxious to get back to the playground.
Aren't her new shoes cute? Thank you Grammy! These are the ones we went to buy when ER got to run through the splash zone at the mall, mentioned at the end of this post. They are so nice and lightweight. Plus now I won't hear any whining about getting pebbles, sand, or wood chips from the various playgrounds in her shoes. Speaking of shoes, now ER is pretty set for awhile with a pair of sneakers, sandals, and dress shoes. If you read my other blog, that's a hint as to our sponsored giveaway this week, look for a new one on Tuesday!
By far the most exciting part was getting to ride in the tire swing. After looking at it and wanting to ride it for over a year, this spring she finally mustered up enough nerve to get on one. Now she goes on them whenever she gets a chance.
It was a full day, playing at the park, a bike ride later on, stopping for ice cream , dinner, and then driving home. That might sound pretty uneventful to some, but I prefer to think of days like these as the exciting ones☺
