Revisit...

This week we revisited a favorite park.


Remember this photo from May?



Well, we went back this week and the tree is full of leaves.
 


I took the kids to burn off some toddler energy on this warm July day. I made them run to and from the tree - 


Once...

Twice...


Three times..

Then we took a lunch break and shared some veggie Pirate Booty with the local resident squirrel.



Later we spied some bugs but more on that in another posting.

In case you were wondering, yes, they took great naps! And I enjoyed a long workout and some crafting. Lots more to show you soon.


Do you have any tricks to getting your kids to take a long nap?

LOVE that you had them run to and from the tree. It is exactly the type of thing we do around here. We challenge Deaglan to see how fast he can run. Or if he asks to pull the wagon on our evening walks we happily let him!

Great idea to tire them out! I love that park- so nice that you can just let them run and run without worrying about cars, etc!

I remember those days of naps!! I miss them :) Racing each other is always a good way to knock them out, and me too! Great pictures.

Those two photos are amazing!! You should hang them side by side.. They speak volumes about the passage of time.... And it's just a lovely landscape besides!
