Look Who Went To The Park...

Isn't it funny how some of our best times happen spontaneously? We had one of those kinds of days last week, when my daughter decided on a whim, to make a visit to a nearby park. She also decided to invite me, Caden, and Caden's mama along.
It was getting near lunchtime, so we made a detour by McDonald's to get some food. Nothing makes the little ones happy like a "Happy Meal"! There are also times when a "Happy Meal" makes MiMi happy, too...

The park turned out to be a fantastic place for the children to play. It was completely fenced in, so we could relax a bit while they played on the playground equipment. Madison is big enough to get on the playground equipment by herself which was nice.

The highlight of the day came the whistle blew, and a train came speeding by on the adjacent railroad tracks! Caden was absolutely thrilled because he loves "Thomas" the train! After the train went by, Caden said, "I want it to come back!" After a couple of hours in the warm sunshine, and a "Happy Meal", guess who was ready for a nap??? Everybody!



Loving the springing rubber ducky...

I love the way they get to spend time together. It reminds me of me and my nephew, Ashley. :-)

Enjoy while these simple pleasures are big events for them. Isn't it wonderful? Our oldest is 8, almost 9, and still enjoys simple things. I hope yours and mine continue that way.
