My Momma said there'd be days like this....

Wonderful days filled with smiles and joy.  I knew they'd come, but didn't expect them to come so soon.
Seraph at the park

I dread the dreariness of February.  Today the sun came out and warmed everything just enough for a trip to the park.  Don't get me wrong - it was still cold.  The wind never stopped blowing.  But the kids (and especially Seraph) had oooooooh-sooooo-much fun!!

Seraph wanted to walk everywhere!  I'd carry her up to the top of the slide (don't want her learning to do steps yet.  nope nope!)  We'd slide down, clap and "yay" at the bottom, and then walk back to the steps.  She tired after a while, but overall she seemed really happy.

We left all the tubes at home!  She wasn't scheduled to eat for an hour, and I decided she could go without her oxygen for that long.  (She's accidentally gone with out it for several hours before and was OK.)  Besides, oxygen tanks mean nasal cannula instead of blowby and she refuses to allow any tubes on her face unless she's feeling too sick to move.)

The park is fenced in, and we had the whole place to ourselves.  Elmo came with us....and a huge ball to play with.  Sexy Haqon brought his mp3 player (so we could stay longer w/out him getting bored, I think)  They don't even look cold, do they?
Did I mention the wind?  Crazy windy!  Seraph didn't seem to mind (last year the wind touching her skin would scare her.)  My favorite was a slide built for two.  I just had to take the twins down it together.  I don't think they cared that they could go at the same time.  But it sure made mommy happy :)

It's so nice to have a good time along with your kids. Seraph is a beautiful name. I think it means angel....

It looks like everyone had a lot of fun at the park! It's late here (or early depending on how you look at it) but I'll be back for more.

stopping by from SITS - looks like the park was a wonderful success! I totally understand the whole helping to climb the slide thing... my little monkey is now 3 1/2 and sometimes I think I should leave my heart at home when we head to the park because it stops on a regular basis... as he climbs and todders...

It's been such a long hard winter for so many people----I know for sure for us. I feel like a new person now that the sun has been out for a few days.

Happy to see your little enjoying themselves. We are all deserve a few of those smiling times, eh?
