I am a total kid at heart
I love all things that kids love because it brings back great memories of playing around outside and being creative as a kid. I also love things that I think will make my kids swoon with joy. I enjoy their giggles as they experience something new and fun and exciting! In fact at church on Sunday, I checked in with the kiddy daycare just to see how many kids were there and to see how it looked and I saw a bounce house being aired up out of the corner of my eye and I promise, I startled the door attendant as I screamed out, "oh my gosh, a bounce house, no way. Honey come look at this!"
|All to herself|
We did not end up leaving the kids there because I freaked her out too much...I could tell - she feared me and my excitement! Oh well. There's always next Sunday.
And it should come as no surprise that aside from loving kid things like bounce houses, I also love libraries and all the kiddy books just waiting to be explored and the outside playgrounds filled with kids screaming and laughing and falling and huge playgrounds that are like 5 minutes away that I had no idea about until this past weekend.
Let me clarify. Me and my kiddos and husband often drive around the neighborhood scouting out houses to peek into-legally. We are both in real estate and love open houses and seeing different neighborhoods near us.
We drove down the street to see the local YMCA being built that will be HUGE and will have an Olympic size pool and a water slide that goes out of the building and then back into the building! You see why I am so excited! With kiddos, this YMCA being built 5 minutes away is a GODSEND!
So as we were checking that place out, we saw some other structure in the park that we had not seen before. We got out and looked and BOOM, it was a new playground that they had put up within the past year that they forgot to tell me about. I am a letter writer and they will be receiving one from me soon on the implications of not telling me this was brand stinking new and in my neighborhood.
So, with iphone camera in hand and enough fun to last me the week, I submit to you- playtime with the Thompsons!
We had a ball and we will be back again soon and I am linking up with Claudya from Unknown Mami and her Sundays in my city series.
Happy playtime everyone!
