Boyd Park!!!

On Monday Juliana and I went on a walk to the library to take some books back. Juliana was so excited to get some new books. Well on our way there I noticed that there was a park that I hadn't ever notice before. I got really excited because I haven't found parks that close by. But, I didn't say anything to Juliana about it because I wasn't sure there would be enough time to go after the library. We walked the rest of the was to the library and I notice that on Monday's the library doesn't open until 1 pm. It was only 10:30. Juliana was crushed. She started to cry and I felt so bad. But, then I told her that I had a special surprise for her but it was only for happy girls. I walked her over to the park and it was amazing. This darling castle theme. I was so happy that we found it. And within walking distance too....well for me, I have to push her in the stroller (to many big hills).

So, today I decided that we should go to the library and get some new books and on our way home I told her we could go to the park and have a picnic lunch. She was thrilled. I made PB&J's for both of us and packed a small lunch and off for our outing we went. She had a blast and I brought my camera so I could show all of you my great find. She played for about 1 1/2 hrs. And when I got her home she wanted to read one of her new books and go right down for a nap. I am so glad that she is still such a good napper. I don't know what I would do without them. I am sure I will be finding out soon enough. LOL.

Anyway, here are a few pictures of her playing at the park. She really had a good time. And it was beautiful today...spring rocks!!!!

Queen of her castle!!!

Having so much fun on the slide...sit on your dumb before you go down I am yelling out to her. LOL.

The dragon springy toy that she adores. And a picnic lunch in the sun...I actually got to lay on that blanket for a good 30 mins and watch her play after lunch. It was very nice.

Anyway, I hope that all of you had as beautiful of a day as we did here. I couldn't have imagined it any better.

*****Edit: on a side note...I just looked in the mirror and realized that all of my basking in the sun has led to a sunburn. That is what I get for bragging about our weather. LOL

That looks like a great park! I am loving this Spring weather as well. How ideal your picnic sounds. Lying on a blanket with a PB and J....that's the life!

that looks like so much fun!! I wish our weather was so nice! It's pretty chilly and wet here still. My girls love going to the park in any weather, though. :)

I'd rather bask in the sun and get a little sunburn, than have to bundle up cause its snowing outside!! It looks like you two had such a fun day, the library, park and picnic!!
