Stroll thru the park
We've had absolutely gorgeous weather around here lately. Yesterday I took Peanut on an outing to the park. We went around 4 pm and it was still 78 degrees but there was a breeze and the shade was perfect.
We walked past the play area and I smiled to myself trying to imagine him running around.
Everything is new now. First time at the park, first time admiring the trees.
The last time I was here I was about 9 months pregnant. There was a little girl sitting by herself on the teeter totter. I watched B as he walked over and got on the other side. He had to control the whole thing which looked to be quite the workout. It's like doing a bunch of squats. Eventually he convinced me to get on her side which I'm sure didn't help at all.
Anyway, she was happy and it made me laugh. He doesn't think twice about things like that. He doesn't ever care about looking silly.
As we walked and I chatted with Peanut it was fun to see him look at our new surroundings. He was fascinated by the trees and the jingle of a dog's collar as it ran by.
We kept walking the path until he got tired and fell asleep. I sat on a bench and read a book while he napped.
It smelled like freshly cut grass... and spit up. Well, the park smelled like grass and I smelled like spit up. Still, it was nice regardless.
When was the last time you went for a nice walk? If you live in a snowy area do you still get outside to take it all in?
