Centennial Park Visit

Mom came up for a visit after Thanksgiving and we had the brilliant idea to take the kids to the park on Saturday afternoon, figuring it would likely be the last such outing before winter. The morning was sunny and calm, but by the time we got to the park, it had turned overcast & windy. Sure made us wonder what we were thinking. We ate our Culver's fast food in the car (to conserve our heat) and then let the kids play on the playground for about 30 minutes. They were relatively warm because they were doing so much running around, but mom and I were fairly frozen.

Here's Mia in a jumbo baby swing at the park. Mom and I even sat in them. They are extremely comfortable for a plastic chair due to the back support, but we both agreed that they needed heaters installed for the colder days. Soon we began envisioning the idea of these large chairs in the home of every adult, upgraded of course and complete with cup holders, automated swing motion, foot rests, leather or suede exteriors, cushions, heaters and massagers, etc. Kind of like a baby swing for adults. I think the cold must have been getting to us!

Mountain-climber Seth

You can really make out Seth's hairdo in this photo. He now wants it spiky like Shark Boy in the Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl.

Mia loves this swing-like device.

One good photo for the album (too bad I had to take a dozen or so pictures to get a good one!)
