Ever wonder why children just love throwing rocks into the river? I wonder that all the time, like they will spend thirty minutes to almost an hour just throwing rocks into the river. It's so simple, but it's so fun! We brought our puppy, too and he just kept barking at people who was just walking the trail. So weird, haha, he is changing. He mostly barked at adults but loved the children! After playing by the river, the kids wanted to go to the playground before Keilani had to go school. So we head on over to the park closeby... Except it was filled with a million kids from a field trip I'm guessing because there were school buses parked in the parking lot. There were no way I was bringing the kids to a zoo since MiMi is still so little!
Luckily, where we live there are a bunch of nice parks and playgrounds so we went to the one that's closer by our house. I forgot Mimi loves the toddler slide in this one and she learned how to CLIMB the slide. She would climb then slide down repeatedly, it was so cute! By watching Keilani and EZ go on the medium and big slides, she built up the courage to actually go on them too. Man, my little girl is so brave! I want to put her in gymnastics for sure when she gets a little bit older, I know she can mount up to something!
I really like this playground when it's not crowded, mornings are the best time because all the big kids are in school. I don't have to worry about MiMi all that much, no one to trample or run over her pretty much. I tried to go through the monkey bars from beginning to end and I could only do like FOUR swings! Ugh, gotta work on my upper strength, but my hubby on the other hand got some superhuman upper body strength lol doing flips and whatever else that boy can do. I also climbed up that big rock they had on the playground haha! Was so proud of myself getting up there and as soon as I got up, I was like "Crap, how am I going to come down?" I was stuck, unfortunately LOL but my hubby saved me by giving me his knee to step on. Hehehe!
We ended the morning with a lunch from Burgerville. Their strawberry lemonade is so deliciously bomb, it was so FRESH! All their food is so fresh, but of course that comes with a con, the price! Lol, but oh well gotta have some good food in our tummies!
