the funnest

I'm pretty sure yesterday was the funnest day of Ole's life. I'd remembered driving past "Perch and Play" but had never looked up any info about it. In my head I was sure it was probably just something for older kids. To my luck and surprise it was for the littles too. So Ole and I went there and played for a couple hours and he got to have chicken nuggets for lunch. He had a blast. We went home and took a nap and when he woke up he had to go with me to the post office. But since he put up with that, he got to go to the park that's by our house. He liked picking dandelions and after that I showed him the amazingness that is the slide. I took him down a big one first and he SCREAMED in delight. So after that I held him over and over again on some of the other slides and finally he tried out the toddler slide on his own. I held his hands so he wouldn't bonk his head but he had a blast being able to climb up to the slide on his own (and exhausting himself). I tried to put him in a baby swing but he was terrified of it for some reason and screamed and wouldn't let me go. He liked when I would swing with him but that's about it. He also had fun putting rocks in his mouth and spitting them out when I would tell him "no rocks in your mouth!" After the park when we were sweaty and exhausted I thought "a slurpee sounds good!" He was pretty fussy and tired but I was pretty sure it would be worth it to make the trip to 7/11 before going home.  I was right. He LOVED it. I'm pretty sure he drank half of it. It was a good day.

The good stuff.
