Trip to the Playground, Take 2

Our last venture to the park was quite unsuccessful in the sense that neither Luke or Aubrey had any desire
to actually play on the playground.

So, I decided to try to take them again and force them
to enjoy playing like normal kids do!

We started off by introducing Aubrey to the playground "turf"
Apparently she dislikes turf just as much as real grass...
or she's upset at me for making her wear that sunhat :)

After a few seconds, the crying ceased, but she was
far from being pleased with the situation

Next we decided to give the swings another try.

Her first reaction was, are you kidding me?,
not one of these things again!

Then she relaxed and realized
that maybe the swing wasn't so bad

Finally she started to enjoy swinging!

Luke, for the most part, had a great time
at the park and really loved the big boy swings
As for Aubrey, her one smile on the swing
was the highlight of her time at the park

The car didn't amuse her
She wasn't the least bit interested in the slide; she didn't even crack a smile when I helped her slide down.

She just looked plain miserable
Again, maybe it was the hat...
but I think it's safe to say that
Aubrey is NOT a fan of the playground

Before we left, Luke was intrigued by some girls running around chasing each other (much older girls, I might had),
so he squatted down under the playground equipment
and proceeded to crawl after them

GREAT post! Aubrey's facial expressions are absolutely pricesless! And Luke doesnt look like such a big boy with his diaper hanging out of his shorts! Get to potty training, mommy!

LOL, poor Aubrey...perhaps she'll be more on an indoor girl!

My Emma was never much of a fan of the playground and getting dirty, either. Maybe Aubrey will be your shopping buddy... I think she makes that hat look GOOD! :)

You know, the park is a hot and sweaty and dirty place. I'd not be too upset if my kids didn't like it.

Great picture story!! :)
