Josiah really enjoyed this twirling toy at the first park. It was at such an angle that when you sat in it and put your weight in it, the thing pretty much was self-perpetuating and kept going around and around until you would sit very still and then it would slow and stop enough so you could get out.
Josiah also enjoyed the swings at the second park. It was much more shady here and it felt good to be under the trees as we watched the boys play.
Here is sweet Caleb-bee at the first park. He had fun exploring the whole area and in this shot was sitting on the railing of the stairs like it was a pony ride.
Daniel enjoyed trying to swing himself as well. He and Daddy also went on an exploring adventure of the area and he kept finding various "treasures" that he insisted upon Daddy holding. They were a variety of pine cones and twigs as it turned out. They were very important though and David found that if he didn't take them that Daniel would insist upon him holding them each time. After their walk, David lined up all the "treasures" on a bench and we took a picture of them.
At the first park, Daniel and Caleb found a puddle of water that they enjoyed splashing and sitting in. It was hard to tear them away from this area and they kept trying to sneak back to it after we lured them away.
Daniel and Caleb were fading a bit by this point at the second park. Shortly after this was taken, we trekked back to the car and then went to McDonalds for lunch where the kiddos played on the indoor equipment there as well. Overall, it was a fun day and it was nice to have a quiet holiday as a family.
