This past Saturday we had a few hours in the evening open, and wanted to do something different as a family. No television. No pile of princess toys. Not even dressing up and dancing to the Cinderella soundtrack. But also – free.
So we went to the park. A couple blankets, a few books for the girls, a few crackers and a drink. We were a little worried as parents, I’ll admit. Are we bringing enough for our daughters to be entertained?
Would we set out the blanket, get all prepared for a time of relaxation, and all of a sudden have a three year old with a tantrum, a 1.5 year old that wants 100% of our attention, and a 12 week old that wants to eat?
For a bit of reinforcements, we brought Aunt Mary with us…and set out.
Sure, our 12 week old wanted to be held a bit…but we were capable. 🙂
And ended up making Addie’s “favorite part of the day” that night. 🙂
