Every day doesn't have to be a big to-do. Today for our activity, we picked a lazy one, and our day (lazily) went something like this...
Nate, my sister-in-law Miranda, and I woke up. The kids all woke up and we ran around like crazy trying to get all of us ready. Nate went to school, and Miranda and I went to the grocery store to get stuff for a picnic for all of us. We finally made it to the park just before Nate got out of class, and he met us as we were finishing our picnic and heading for the playground. The kids ran around while we took pictures. They swung (Tristian LOVED it, and Callie just asked if we would "push her like a baby" haha) Then Callie wanted to climb up on a giant climbing rock that she has been dying to climb since she first came to the park a couple years ago (ok, maybe she wasn't eyeballing it as an infant, but pretty soon thereafter). We played on the merry-go-round for a little while until Tristian got nauseous, then decided to head home so he could take a nap. All in all, it was a good day and we had a lot of fun and took a lot of really cute pictures (which is good, especially for Miranda, because Tristian won't sit long enough to get actual pictures done for his first birthday, but we got some adorable ones here that are better than any posed-studio pictures would have been!
Yesterday, the girls and I went up to visit Callie's best friend Sydney, and I will post details and pictures of our super-fun visit when Syd's mom emails them to me :)
