Chicago weather is getting steadily warmer. Yeah, the start of this week looks rainy, but I think we are past the 40º days. The detour is headed for the spring transition! Now is the time of year when everyone starts posting their outdoor pictures. Flowers, yard work, local eateries with outdoor patios, spring adventures, etc. And for us parents that means pictures from the playground.
For Sweetie this is a return to familiar territory – the park. We headed over to our local park and she was right back in the mix. With her being older she blasted over things that she was creeping over last year. Despite her advancement, she is still preferring the full-seat swing. Fun stuff.
For the Cricket this is like a whole new world. I figure her eyesight and awareness of the world came into focus during the grey winter days. I think her world was the size of our house until just recently. So going to the park for her is a Columbus-like experience. While she is still too young to crawl around on the equipment, she is completely entertained trying to find the thing that is making that chirping sound or watching the kids run around playing. And she will learn all about those swings soon enough.
The social calendar is filling up fast, especially with two of them filling the days. So we’re off! I hope it’s warming up wherever you are. Get out there and enjoy.
