The kids had early release today. What should I be doing? Staying home and getting getting loads of work done with social media posts and blog posts. What did we do instead? We went to lunch, ate some frozen yogurt, then spent some time at the park. Sometimes you just need to go to the park.
Well there was a couple of reasons that we went to the park. I needed my pictures for the Suburban that I am driving this week and there is one park around us that has lots of trees and a couple of decent places to take pictures. Plus I really wanted the kids to run off their energy from eating so that I actually could get some work done once we came home. My kids have tons of energy and since soccer is all done they don’t have an outlet to release that energy most days. If the last couple of weeks are any indication of what summer will be like… We will be spending a LOT of time at the pool so that they can wear themselves out!
I love that we have so many parks in our community that we can visit. All have different setups and equipment so it gives my kids a variety versus going to just the same park every time. The park that is right next to the soccer fields where my son practices are great because they have basketball courts, soccer field, and playground equipment. Extra bonus is that is has bathrooms and that is essential when you have kids.
We played with our new toy with a flying disk that unfortunately I broke because I pulled the string too far, but the kids had fun chasing it around. D and B practiced kicking the soccer ball around a bit and a few laps around the field gave the kids a good sweat. It is rather humid today so they worked up a sweat pretty fast. But hey they got some of their crazy energy out and are now here at the house crafting and being quiet. Sometimes you just need to go to the park.
Work can wait. The house cleaning can wait. My kids are my world and I like when we can have times like this to connect and just be together and not in front of a screen. Oh and it gave me an excuse to drive the Suburban a bit more.. haha
Do you ever think.. Sometimes you just need to go to the park??
