omg. it's Friday ... thank all goodness.
Today Im going to let the photos do the talking because Im feeling a little short winded. But I will preface them briefly.
Yesterday we went to the park down by the lake. We have to jump over the gate indicating that the park is closed to get there ... but we do it anyway. For the first time at this park we saw two other children. Jude loves playing with other kids. They were with their dad who was on his cell phone pacing the length of the play structure. He occasionally would yell out to tell his kids not to do something. This lasted for about 10 minutes and then he called his kids to him and they left. Can we all just make a promise to each other right now to never be that guy?
Not because he was busy, because i get it, people get busy. Let's just never hinder our kids from being unique and exploratory and inventive and having fun. Instead lets go to the park and have fun with them, let's give them the chance to remind us how it feels to be young and free.
