|Mema: The Professional Swinger|
|Slides are more fun with friends|
The two park trips that I went on as well were lots of fun. First, we went to the 'Big Park' (as my kids like to call it) for a lunch park playdate with our closest neighbor friends. Annabelle & Alex had a monopoly on Mema pushing them on the swings. It was really cute. Jared & Caleb pretty much spent the time running around oblivious to Alex, Annabelle, and Elise chasing after them.
Another day, Mema & I decided everyone needed a few moments outside, so we ventured over to our small neighborhood park. I wore Luke (as a sort of practice for Super Saturday) and the big kids ran around and played while Mema & I talked. Besides chasing each other around, they really liked to test their arm and grip strength by playing 'monkey.' One guess as to who named the game (*cough cough* Annabelle).
My favorite part of that adventure was when the kids wanted to be chased so Mema & I turned into Mema & Mommy Monsters (even while wearing a sleeping 6 week old). It was so much fun chasing them around. It's the simple moments of being a Mom that really are the best.
