Off to the park - yay!

On the first spring-like day last week, I took the opportunity to take the kids for a walk to a nearby park. What would usually take 10 mins took us about half an hour because Kira wanted to walk. I couldn't deny her that opportunity, because despite a little bit of a wind, it was a gorgeous day, the kind we had been waiting for all winter long.

When we got to the park, we were the only ones there! So, it was Kira's kingdom. Of course, her all-time favourite thing in the world is swinging, so she was on the swing for quite some time. Calvin ventured over to the slide and I was pleasantly surprised to see him climb and slide down unassisted (see video below). He was so proud of himself. He kept doing it over and over and over again.

I didn't get shots of the other activities, but Kira eventually made it to the slide, the seesaw, the "merry-go-round" (I don't actually know what it's called but that's what she calls it), and the play house. It's one of the older parks in the neighbourhood (Jason Park in Candiac), but a gem of a place because there is lots of shade during the summertime, and a good variety of play structures.

Looking forward to a lot of outdoor play time this spring / summer / fall!!
