one of our favorite things about where we live is our proximity to a great park. it's about a 10 minute walk through a lovely neighborhood. any time we've talked about moving, i always thing, "but we're so close to the park." when the weather is warm, we're there frequently. it's such a great way for everyone to get some outside time yet relax too. and diesel is finally getting to where he can play and enjoy the playground more without our help... except he likes to plunge down the slides head first. so we're always close by! yesterday we had a wonderful time there starting with a picnic, then running into some friends and making some new friends. it was just a lovely afternoon. i kept trying to get video of the kids sliding together, but diesel wouldn't give me a chance to get set. he's hilarious! and so is lula with the things she comes up with! yeah, i kind of like my kids. i'm so looking forward to many, many more days like this with them.
