I packed a big, yummy picnic lunch. The weather was pretty today but the wind was really kicking! As in, my plate of Chinese coleslaw blew away. Which was a shame, because I really like that stuff. Would've been a good day to fly a kite. Pity I didn't think of that beforehand!
Anyway, the park was beautiful and you guys already know I think my kids are beautiful, so here's some pics:
Here's Korban keeping watch over our picnic groceries. He was Bob the Builder today. :)
A) The only barriers between you and a very steep drop into the water is widely-spaced steel cables that a child could easily slip through so I was busy making sure that didn't happen and suppressing a panic attack. ;)
B) Halfway across, Korban decided he wanted to toss his beloved hardhat into the water; and I couldn't let that happen because as soon as he threw it he would want it back and would attempt to go in after it. Pause in middle of large swinging bridge for mini-meltdown. Squelch panic attack and move on.
C) Right before we set foot on said bridge my mom told me that she had recorded an episode of Dr. Phil for me in which Dr. Phil fixes a kid with behavioral problems--turned out all the kid needed was for people to never raise their voice at him or spank him. He didn't have behavioral problems, he was just scared of people. Had to take a mental time-out and file that one in my imaginary filing cabinet right next to the advice from Dr. Oz. The drawer has a label that says "Things Melissa Gives Zero Cares About."
Ok, so no pics of the pretty bridge. Let's move on, shall we? ;)
