summer days (and park progress!)

Two parks in one day?! Wait. Two posts two days in a row?! We've gone bananas. Speaking of bananas...monkeys! We went to the zoo today too. Nice segue, I know. Today was the kind of day I love the most.

The zoo with all my girls. Lucy, Sammy and Gaga.

We spent the morning at the zoo, then accidentally (not at all) stopped by the plaza for some quick shopping, dropped my mom back at her house - though not before Lucy was able to talk her into an "orange ice cream cone with red sprinkles" - and then we were off on another park adventure! 

This picture kind of summarizes our initial feelings about this park. Spending 20 minutes playing at a park with one swing set and one slide (yes, of course we are spoiled by modern parks) posed a challenge for us... Lucy was initially most excited about the number of mushrooms (hundreds) growing in this park.

But once we got going... Oh wait. Savannah still hated Lucy holding her down the slide... 
But once we went back to the car and got Lucy's baby "Kathy" (see middle swing) all seemed right with the world. It wasn't documented, but Savannah even warmed to Lucy helping her down the slide. And we  ended up staying for almost 45 minutes, success!
THEN. After dinner out at a restaurant we talked Paul into joining us at yet another park. I'm getting competitive about this challenge, I can feel it. And the girls don't seem to mind one bit!
