Afterwards, we walked to South Park. It was crawling with kiddos and parents. Somehow, one bum managed to sleep through the chaos on a park bench. My kiddos, as usual, preferred to play in separate areas. Handsome made a bee line for the stairs on the tallest slide. I casually walked behind him until I realized he had no fear and was going to slide down by himself, without hesitation. I rushed down to the bottom, but he was already there, ready to go again. Boys. I tried to keep them on the shady side. It worked for a bit, and I got a few pictures.
Handsome loved this alligator. I gently bounced it for him, but of course he soon figured out how to make it move. Let's just say he made it jump more vigorously. Another not so suprising difference between boys and girls.
This is pretty much the only picture of Princess. She is far too busy to be bothered with pictures or to even look at the camera. Maybe next time.
All in all, we had a great time. The kiddos got worn out, mom got a few pictures, and we all got ice cream. Princess didn't even throw a fit when we left! She waved and told everyone "buhbye" a million times. Even more impressive, Tiffany and I didn't talk about work! That's true friendship. So what did you do this weekend? Anyone else eat ice cream and jump on alligators?
