june two: the playground

Josiah and I have spent the past week at my parent's house in WI! We're always happy to be here. A few days ago, Si and I were itching for some outside playtime on a gorgeous day. My hometown has a park right on the lake with a bunch of fun playgrounds, so we headed there.

While it was sunny and warm, it was windy. Like, really really WINDY. Like, so windy that a bunch of folks were leaving the park because of the wind. We, on the other hand, didn't mind one bit and we pert near had the entire playground to ourselves!

Si spent a big chunk of our time there going up and down all of the slides. Down he'd go and then he'd race around the playset, run up the ramp, and slide down again....always with a smile or a determined looked on his face. At one point a girl a little older than Josiah joined him in this cycle. I was very proud of Si because he always let her go first {he kept saying "You first, Josiah next"} and encouraged her if she was ever hesitant {"Go go go! You can do it!"}.

Josiah also spent a great deal of time on the railings. Normally, I wouldn't let him climb on those.....but since there were no other kiddos around at that time {for him to influence or fall on top of!} I let him hang out on them. He thought he was awesome. His proud grin was pretty cute.....

The rest of our time at the park was spent ramming around, jumping, exploring, squealing and running in the wind {oh, and checking the scab on his knee to make sure it wasn't bleeding}....

Is it just me or is my baby looking like a 4 year old in this last photo?!

Our trip to the park got me SO excited for summer! Siah is getting to be such a big boy and he's at such a fun, delightful age.
