Discovery Park take two, the Josh and Jane experience

The twins LOVE Discovery Park, and to be going with cousins was a major bonus. Cousins or no, where ever the twins go they are always on the look out for new friends and oh did they make some on Friday. After Jane and Josh spent a ten full minutes chasing* Hannah around they found these two little boys to play with. They had a ball running around the park making up all kinds of little kid games.

I can't believe how fun it is for me to watch them be children, to try to look at things the way only children can and to be so hopeful. I think it must be this time of year when it starts to get a little cooler and we can venture outside a bit more often. It also might have something to do with reading Something Wicked This Way Comes around this time of year about 13 years ago. I don't think I have ever looked at childhood the same way again after reading that book. It makes me feel very wistful about my childhood and hopeful for my children.

*Jane was sobbing as she ran after Hannah crying that she wanted to play. It was so sad, I tired to explain to Hannah that the twins really wanted to play with her but, being ten I am sure she was not super interested in playing with five year olds. To her credit she did end up playing with the kids. Poor Jane, I hope the first few days of Kindergarten go well for her in the friends department.

I love all the pictures!

Howarth Park was the best. This Discovery playground reminds me of the Super-Playground in Sebastopol or whatever little town it was in on the way to the beach. Do you remember it?

Yes, I love that park, we wanted to go when we were in SR but we didn't get a chance. But we did go to Howarth Park, I'll post pictures soon.

I miss you!

P.S. Can you call me when you're at the park? Since it's like, 2 seconds away from me? And Jane looked so cute on the first day of school. I can't believe it!!
