A Beautiful Saturday Afternoon

The weather today couldn't be beat. After dance lessons, I just had to take the kids to the park. That's when I realized, I can't remember the last time I took James to the park. To my defense, our park is not the nicest park in the world even if it is a very big one. For this reason I drove to another town to go to the park.

When we pulled into the parking lot and got out of the car, James looked at me as if to say, "Is this for real? Do my eyes deceive me? Are we going to play at the park?" Once he realized it was okay, he immediately ran to the jungle gym and began going up and down the slide. I followed him around taking pictures, listening to him interact with other kids. I had to giggle when he asked a little girl her name and was quickly given the brush-off. (Get used to it, kiddo. Girls are fickle.)

A little help please?

I can do it mommy.

Even Cait got in on the fun.

James was a little nervous at first.

Then he began to have a little fun.

After some fun at the park, we went for lunch at Five Guys Burgers where James decided to provide us with a little entertainment.

He's quite the little ham.

After having such a fun day, I promised James that we would return to this park. It was definitely worth the drive.

Lovely post Annemarie.
This is exactly what Joseph and I do each week.
We stay on the swings for ages singing songs together.
Loved the video. James sure is a free spirit!

You DID have a beautiful day at the park. How fun for all three of you! ... and James definitely did Free Bird proud.

(We just got a Five Guys a year or two ago.... love those burgers!)
