Last weekend while Phil did a huge study sesh, Micah and I got to keep ourselves occupied all day long. We started with a little hike in our nearby city park, Schmitz Preserve. We hiked from city graffiti to lush green mountain hideaway in no time. Micah touched the moss and lichen, climbed across fallen trees, threw sticks in the stream, kicked up some dirt, and smelled the fresh air.
We then ventured to the local elementary school's playground to have a picnic lunch and play time. The sky was grey, but our fun was colorful. ;-)
After all that fun out and about, nothing was more sweet than to see this sleeping beauty napping with his daddy. We play hard to sleep hard here. ;-)
After their afternoon nap, we headed to the public library to spend time looking at board books and playing with a few cool puzzles and games. Did you know that the Seattle Public Libraries let you borrow board books on the honor system!? Yes, you get to borrow them for as long as you want! So totally awesome! After spending a fun hour or so at the library we were about to head home, yet the rain became quite fascinating and being as
we had no where else to be and nothing else to do I am such a cool mom, we stuck around to play in the puddles in front of the library and then again when we got home.
