To the parkJuly 23, 2010
This morning Maya & I walked to the park. It’s quiet in our neighborhood in the morning, much to Maya’s dismay. When we go for a walk, she loves the cars, dogs, people…she’s a city girl in many ways. But alas, she lives in a nice quiet neighborhood…which she’ll learn to love some day :).
We made it to the park & there wasn’t a sole there – not surprising at 8:15 in the morning, but we had so much fun. The park with just 2 people is actually a blast. We could run all over, go on whatever we wanted. Maya thought it was so funny that I would go down the slide without her. She mastered the shaky bridge all by herself. She pushed the empty swings. But her favorite part was definitely ‘escaping’ from the playground. Sneaking out & running onto the baseball field…she thought she was hysterical! I tried to get her to run around the bases with me…but she preferred to run back & forth between the playground & ballpark…thinking she was sneaking out every time! We were both tired by the end – who wouldn’t be.
There’s nothing better than a quiet morning with just Maya & me!
