Lucky for me it was a gorgeous, sunny spring day here. So we ate a quick lunch of leftovers, packed up the van with some roller blades, strollers, and basketballs and we headed to the park. There is a great park here with huge sports fields surrounded by a running loop. I like to take the kids here so that they can play in the grass or on the playground equipment while I run the loop. This is the same park where the kids take swimming lessons and do swim team in the summer.
I also love this park because it has a long nature trail through the forest with tall cedar trees, a beautiful babbling stream, and a perfect little bridge for having leaf races. I loved playing in places like this as a child and it makes my heart happy to see the kids enjoying these things too.
So after a good run, some romping in the sunshine and a splash in the stream we were all feeling MUCH better. Especially me. Our afternoon went much more smoothly. Deep exhale.
