We literally live across the street from the park. Whenever the day is nice we take a walk over and they run around like crazy! They have the best time. A lot of time there are other kids their age there and they get a nice little play date. Yesterday we spent 2 hours there, they were so exhausted by the time we got home. I notice when they run around and let out energy outside for about an hour or more, they are not so wound up at home. When we got home they rested a bit and then went in the back yard to run around the rest of the evening. I love watching them play and just be kids. It really does make life worth while, as a mother, watching your kids just have fun. Water balloon fights have become a normal thing around the house, since we got nice weather, they love getting wet and getting Luis and I soaked! Making time to play with the kids is such a big deal, not only does it form an amazing bond, but you really get to know your kids personalities and preferences. Plus the smiles are endless!!!
Have a fun filled weekend!
