First, I took Spencer to the park the other day. He kept insisting that he wanted an “out” park, not an indoor playground, but it was in the mid 90’s. So I put him in the car and decided to try to find a park with some shade and a playground. We ended up at a county park we had not been to previously, and even though there was a $5 day use fee, we went ahead and went in. It was very worth it! It was right next to the river and there were tall, tall trees so there was plenty of shade over the playground and the breeze brought us the coolness of the river so it was probably a good 8 to 10 degrees cooler than home. It felt really good to there. I enjoyed it as much as Spencer.
Then this happened when I wouldn’t let him stand at the bottom of the slide when people were coming down…
It turned out he wanted to climb up the slide like he does with his brother at other parks when there is no one else there. There was only one little girl there with her dad. The dad invited him to slide down the slide with them so he was happy and when they left, he got to climb up the slide!
And I have to share a very fun app that my friend mentioned on FB the other day and I tried it. It’s called Prisma and it’s free in the Google Play Store. You put in your photo (or take one within the app) then pick one of about 15 different effects that it applies to your photo to make a really fun art piece! I can’t stop playing with it. I like it a lot in terms of changing the pictures enough so I can share the boys’s pictures online. The boys love it, too. Here are a couple of pictures I made with it.
