Playing at the Park

Even though it was a cold windy day and threatened to rain we went to the park for our normal Wednesday park day. The kids needed to be outside for a bit and we were scheduled to go to one of their favorite parks.
So they got in some tree climbing.  

I have been having trouble lately getting Sophie to not make a funny face into the camera when I try to snap a picture of her. I have to catch her not looking or some brief moment before she has had time to put on the funny face.
Or else my photos of her end up with something like this face. 
Then they of course is Molly who can't seem to take anything but cute pictures. She knows what to do when the camera comes out.

 She was just thrilled that I let her get down on the bark and play. I had to watch her like a hawk to make sure she didn't put any in her mouth but she still had a great time crawling around. 

I couldn't help but laugh at the game my boys were playing on the slide. They kept going down like this.
Henry explained that they were doing the luge. Ian went down a few times on his stomach and he called that sckeleton. And then a few times he tride to go down in this crouched down position and he explained that that was ski jumping. He of course ended the trip down the slide with a big jump off the bottom. 
They also went down altogether with a few friends and called that bobsled. I thought it was rather clever that they came up with this sort of Olympic play. It went on for quite awhile. They would go down and then climb right back up.
After a few trips down they were  full of electricity.
It was fun trip to the park. I just wish I had my better camera. Somehow I have misplaced it. I hate it when I do that. I had to resort to using my old 10 year old digital camera which is rather clunky and has about half the settings. I sure hope my camera turns up soon. But I am glad I at least got to photographically document this fun day out with my kids anyway.

Great pics!

I have been so happy to be able to take the kids to the park again, finally. Then last night we got dumped on with a ton of snow! Ack!

I am so glad that you take these good photos of the children! I keep lifting them off and putting them into iPhoto for myself.
