‘Sup lonely park?

‘Sup? 

With temps up there lately, meaning way above normal I notice it. That itching to get out and do something fun. I love the fresh warm air and the blinding sun that calls for dark sunglasses. What better way to celebrate than to find the most lonely park and add some life to it in the middle of what is suppose to be winter. I put Olive in her stroller on Thursday afternoon, grabbed a quilt and my camera, and off we went.

It was brilliant. Olive was more than thrilled to be swinging and after every push she would start laughing and say to me “weeee, again?”

This park offers something our children have never experienced before. The  merry go round or as some call it the carousal. I spread the quilt out on it and sat her down.

At first she was a little hesitant until I hopped on with her, then she was all smiles.

The going ’rounds of course it flipped my stomach out haha but oh so worth it to see her loving it.

When it was time to go Olive was so upset and kept saying “swing”.

I can’t wait to go back, hopefully next week and take both she and Brandon. I know they will have a great time together and I know Brandon will absolutely love the merry go round.

One more full week of school and then Brandon will be on vacation. Ahhh, sweet vacation. More sleep. More r&r. More family time. Love.

Today was a do-nothing day for us, as most Saturdays are. The kids enjoyed staying in their pajamas all day and chilled out. That’s what I enjoy about the weekends with my family. It’s so laid back, nothing pressing to do. So relaxing.

Tomorrow we will work on Valentines Day cards.

One last thing, Olive is learning about feelings. When daddy is leaving she lays her head on my shoulder and pouts and says “I sad.” Or tonight when she hit Brandon with a wooden railroad piece and I said “no, Olive we don’t hit” she replied with “I sad” and pouted. Oh my gosh, It’s truly the sweetest thing.

lovey love.

Brandon was 6 when he began his attachment to a cute plush mouse.

Mickey Mouse.

(yep, Mickey went to see Smurfs, in 3D!)

Before this Brandon wanted nothing to do with stuffed animals. Almost immediately it was Mickey this, Mickey that, Mickey must go here and there and everywhere. Mickey has had quite the life with Brandon, even taking him to the tippy top of Mount Washington, taking in the serene scenery! Mickey’s life is grand to say the least.

Lucky mouse.

Mickey even has the luxury of riding in a shopping cart when we go shopping.

Yes he goes everywhere, and i mean everywhere.

Even skydiving…don’t worry, he’s fine…landing safely into the arms of Brandon of course.  ;-D

He’s got so much adventure in him i tell ya. From the moment he left the dungeon store, it’s been nothing but fun and games.

…….

Olive became attached to her puppy blanket from the beginning.

She was about 2 months old when we got it for her. Like Brandon and Mickey, Olive and puppy go just about everywhere together.

Bedtime, naps, stroller rides, car rides, to the park, etc…

Wherever Olive has been puppy is almost guaranteed to have been there with her too.

I’m so glad they each have something sentimental that means so much. In a way i think it helps bring out the best in them.

Happy Friday.
