WDS Day: Parktime Fun

We wanted to get out and do something fun as a family on WDS Day, but since Ella was sick we didn't want to meet up at the Wichita Zoo with the DSSW group. Instead, we took a little trip to a local park to play for awhile.




The kids had a fabulous time and Ella got to ride in a swing for the very first time. You tell me if it looks like she enjoyed it as much as her brothers?








Right after I took the photos of the kids swinging, Doug was swinging next to Aidan and said "Look at me! Look how high I am!" Aidan turned to look at him and somehow fell out of his swing, landing on his shoulder! Immediate tears and crying. He has a nice purple bruise there, but no swelling or movement pain. Crazy! I thought for sure he broke a bone!

After Aidan recovered, the boys headed over to what we not-so-affectionately call the Slide of Death. Sean climbed up this scary thing several times by himself and just loved it! Yikes!




That was about all my mama heart could handle, so E and I went to the van so she could nurse while the boys ran around.

The meds seem to be helping and she sounds much better today, no more wheezing. She did have another cough-then-puke fit last night. She just has too much mucus moving around in there.

Glad E is feeling better.
I remember the slide of death from my childhood! It would get really hot in the sun and burn your legs.

Looks like you all had a good day! Glad that E is feeling better, she is so cute!

I think that slide would give me a heart attack. We also had a similar one at the playground when I was growing up. I prefer slides with stairs now that I have kids of my own!

Don't you just love park days! I'm so glad spring is here (even though it was below freezing today!). That slide is scary! I'm surprised they still have those old, tall, metal slides. The only thing that scares me more on a playground are those metal merry-go-round things. Nothing like that thing going full speed and your kid either A) goes flying off or B) gets whacked in the head by the metal bars! (fortunately hasn't happened to my kids, but has to neighbors' kids!)
