And of course Tommy and Percy had to join as at the table. My husband and I cant help but laugh at the way our two year olds pronounce Percy... it comes out sounding very much like "pussy", which I have to bite my tongue and repeat back to them how to correctly say it, over pronunciating "Purrr-ceee" I really do wish this train had a different name.
There was nothing but white fluffy clouds in the sky and I was feeling like a different outing other then the pool. I felt like I had all the energy in the world (which I was surprised since I spent all night tossing and turning trying to get my big pregnant belly in a comfortable position.) Hearing my boys excited voices saying "paygowned, paygowned!" and seeing their big smiles in my rear view mirror made me that much more excited for a picnic and at the park.
The boys couldn't get out of the car fast enough to go play- I am surprised they let me get their shoes on and even stood semi still for a sun block lotion application. As soon as I said "all done" they were off and running. My boys were by far the smallest kids at the playground and it cracks me up that older kids see them as babies, they seem so grown up to me already. They can hang with the best of them on almost everything at the playground.
I brought one of our outdoor blankets and my colorful plastic plates, had packed a yummy pb&j lunch with blueberries and "cheesy chips" or more commonly known as cheddar sun chips. The only shaded spots at the playground were the cement picnic areas, so I set up camp in a big space between picnic tables.
