Fridays = Park Days

Every Friday after we pick up Chloe, we head to a new park for about an hour before we head home. I really look forward to our park days. We are very lucky to be living in San Diego where the weather is nice 99% of the time and we have lots of parks in the city. 

 I like doing our Friday Park Day for a couple reasons:

1. Parks are just plain fun and before we had Chloe we would go to parks all the time. It's nice to keep doing that. I also like to explore new parks and playgrounds. I really love playgrounds just as much as kids do. James and I use to play late night lava monster with our friends all the time. It was a blast. 

2. It kicks off the weekend. I like to do something fun on Fridays just to make it "official" that the weekend has started. 

3. It gets us outside and active. Nothing is better than being outside, I love it. And being active is super important to staying healthy.

4. I love the look on Chloe's face when we set her free in a park. She is so elated. She runs free, climbs on everything and shows her independence. It makes my heart melt and I love watching her explore her surroundings.

This video was taken back in January. Chloe (and my tummy) are much bigger now!

I'll have to try and take more pictures of her at the parks. If you all have time (and appropriate weather where you live), I would suggest checking out a park or two during the week. It is so refreshing and fun!
