This trip was expecially fun for the kids cuz Daddy got to come! He had a four day weekend for the 4th of July. I don't think he realized how much of a workout he was going to get crawling around in the hamster trails with the kids!
The other perk to having Daddy along is really really good hangtime in the swings!
(For scale - Brian is 6'3". So Austin is probably about 10' up or so!)
I love how much my kids love to swing! (McKenna can spot a "Weeee" from a mile away!) You can see the pure joy in McKenna's feet and hear it in her giggles!
And I love this pic that Rebecca captured of all of us!
Daddies are also good for some good ol' fashion rough housing too!
I can't tell you how proud I was of Austin that day! His breakthrough with the ladders and slides at the park a few weeks ago made a big difference! He still needs a little pushing to get started but once he gets started, he loves it! "Again?.....Again?" was all we heard for about an hour! He even went down the scary black slide that I unfortunately made him go down last year! Brian had to kinda push him to go down it this time too, but as soon as he hit bottom..."Again?!" Yes! You certainly can, you brave kid! Unfortunately it's really dark by the slides, so this is as good of a video as I could get!
And my always adventurous little girl was all over that place! (Pardon the crazy hairdo. I only had one rubber band. Kinda looks like a falling palm tree!)
Austin spent a good amount of time in the center of the hamster trail thing. It has a device that you feed balls and then push a button to shoot them up all over.
I honestly don't know if he's as terrified as he looks here. He could have just been upset that someone else pushed the button or just yelling at the falling balls. But regardless, it cracks me up!
McKenna spent a good amount of time playing with the wood puzzle things. She is a very focused little girl.
And of course, pics of our sweet friends! We have the best playmates!
Have I mentioned how much I love this little girl?! She always is smiling and gives the best poses!
"P" cracks me up! This girl is fearless and was made to be a gymnast! Pointed toes and everything! And very graceful in her jumping/falling!
And by comparison, my sweet boy is not nearly as graceful!
I love that we go to the same places each summer. It's really fun to compare year to year. Check out my post from our playdate last year! Look how cute and little they all were!
