good girls go bad... and it gets crazy!”
― Rachel Thompson
Just checking to see if you were paying attention! Last post I left you with a promise of a day at the Park. My companions in 'summer craziness' were Lily and her other Grandmother...Beth. I will try to tell the story in pictures...
We started off with gray skies and a light morning mist. With the heat we've been experiencing it was really a blessing. Upon entering the park, Lily spied the swings and was scampering across the ground as quickly as her two little tennis shoed feet would move! I was the photographer on the expedition, so 'Grammy Beth' was in charge of giving Lily pushes to send her spirit and giggles soaring!
The swings were good for about the attention span of a two year old...and it was off to play on the slides, climb the hill and just explore!
Determination pays off!
Run across and find the slide, Lily!
drew pictures on the sand table...
Like her Daddy, Lily was eager to ride in the boats...perhaps the operator had to ask Lily to sit down in the boat...perhaps the boat had to be stopped! Or maybe it was another child...but Lily loved her yacht!
The highlight of the entire day was hands down the Carousel! Lily rode the animals of her choice at least twice per animal! We had the pig, the horse, the cat and the rabbit! Our sweet love likes things fast and the Carousel was just the ticket(s)!
And we're off! More climbing...
Another ride on the yacht...PULL that cord Lily, make that bell ring!
And then the last ride of the day....THE TRAIN! Lily wasn't sure if she wanted to ride the train. Curious as always, but definitely some ambivalence as we pulled out of the station...
Oh, would Lily not like the train? Nah, she was smiling and laughing and enjoying the wind in her hair as fast as you can say 'I think I can, I think I can'!
Train rides come to an end as does a morning at the park. We wore our sweet little angel out...and she wore us out as well. It was time for everyone to head home and have a lovely summer afternoon ritual. A nap!
After all, the sun got hot and we girls got crazy!
