After spending almost 48 hours at the lake- we drove back to my parent's house to stay the night. I didn't feel like spending the next 3.5 hours driving in a car. I felt like laying on my parent's couch!
We played a few games of yahtzee and had some lunch. After Jakey's nap we went to the park. For whatever reason, I really wanted to go to the park. I'm sure it was over 100 degrees outside too, but for whatever reason- the weather felt so nice and I wanted to be outside playing with the kids. My mom took us to this big park out there. It was a really nice park and it was pretty big with so much stuff to do! I'm used to the traditional plastic parks. I loved this park and they need to get one here!
We have a swing in our backyard- Ryan hates it but Jake loves it. He will just hang out and swing for like 20 minutes while I trim the bushes or do whatever and Ryan plays. He liked this swing too but he was a little small for it. He looked funny.
They also had this rock climbing wall. Tim was able to do it. It took me like 5 tires but I got it too. Mom tried it once and didn't try again. Elyse tried a few times but couldn't get it. This rock wall made me think we needed to try rock climbing! Tim and I went rock climbing at an indoor rock climbing place- it was a lot of fun and I think Elyse is at the age where she would have fun too.
They even had a neat tire swing!
My family of 5! Nice, red, and sweaty!
Jake's face makes me laugh! Daddy was chasing him and he was giggling.
After our fun at the park- we headed home for hot dogs and ice cream. Ryan played trains and then Ryan, Jake, and I went to sleep while Elyse & Daddy headed for a swim in Grandma's pool.
