For all their hard work, patience, sharing, and just being great kids this week, we kicked off our Tour of Parks 2012. Last year it was about this time that we did the same thing.
Here are some of the highlights...
First stop IW Park. We had wrapped a trip to the library and picked up our groceries. I love that our local grocery store has a playland where I can leave the kids and shop uninterrupted for as long as I like. Plus, the kids really like going there and come home with charming art work.
T Rex is learning how to propel himself on the swing. Although, he was a bit disgruntled that the swings were only "baby style".
Switching gears...next a nature walk at KA Park.
Once again, we did this exact walk nearly a year ago. However, at that time the geese and ducks already had babies. This year there were none yet. I think most are still on their nests so aside from other fellow walkers we were alone in the park. We actually wrapped the walk just in time as the rain started pouring.
T Rex also got separated from Lil Sister and myself for about 3 minutes and although I could see him the entire time he was still quite concerned and told me he was scared afterward. However, he actually remained quite calm and handled the situation well. I think he will be a good at handling stress as an adult.
Here are more photos...
We saw 5 turtles sunning themselves on a log.
A few geese and ducks.
There's the beginning of our Tour of Parks 2012.
School is officially done. Now I can focus on studying for my certification exam later this month. Let the graduation celebrations begin!
