Last week the three older kids had to take STAR tests. This was two days where they had to get up early, I packed them a lunch and then dropped them off at the testing site. That left Molly and me with nothing to do. One of those days I took her to a park that was near the place the kids took their tests and we stayed there almost all that day. Ever since that day she has been talking about "stone park" and how much fun it is. The other kids felt like they needed to go there.
Stone park is actually a park we used to visit quite often when Sophie and Ian were my only babies. Then for some reason we just never went back.
They quickly found the old playground and started in on climbing up the tower of logs and all around on those large stone blocks.
I spoil my kids sometimes. I got them ice creams from the ice cream man. I never do this. They usually know not to even ask but since I had a little cash in my bag I surprised them with popsicles.
