After our pool time and a nap for the girls....and possibly Michelle, I thought it would be nice to walk over to a nearby playground. You know, get a little exercise....on a little walk....about 2 miles. Michelle thought I was nuts! Well, she actually agreed before she knew how far away it was. We didn't get a block away before I thought Michelle was going to call a cab! Seriously. But, she made it.....I laughed the whole way. We walk and ride our bikes around our neighborhood a lot. I tried to convince her that exercise is a good thing. Nothing doing. She wasn't buying! Especially not when we see wildlife like this along the way!
Then we stopped to watch the geese.....until they got a little too close for comfort and then Michelle had enough!
She and Isabel ended up running from the ugly ducklings!
Anyway, we made it to the playground and the kids had a blast....while Michelle rested. Well, as much as Casey would let her rest. Which wasn't much!
Isabel pushed her in the swing. This girl is fearless! She went way up high and laughed about it!
She scaled the wall in no time!
And, the 15 foot high spiral slide was no match for Casey the monkey! Can't you just see that mischievous look in her eyes here!
The boys did a little rip-stickin'. Yes, that is how Noah broke his arm......please note the that he is riding with a cast. No, we have not thrown the rip-stick away, much to my mother-in-law's dismay! If at first you don't succeed????
Isabel havin' some fun!
A little co-swinging.
I don't think Casey likes the swing....not. at. all.
Claire, on the other hand, really didn't enjoy the swings. But, she liked sliding down the spiral slide with one of her "people", MC (our neighbor)!
You'll have to tune in tomorrow if you want to see some more adventures of Claire and Casey! That is if I have better luck with the internet tomorrow than I've had today.....this may not get posted until tomorrow at this rate.
