Sliding

There's a park not far from our home...easy walking distance...
Before the boys were born, I used to dream about taking them there to play...
I've been able to take them...but this weekend, it was just Emerson and I...
Last time I took him, he wouldn't go down the slide... this time he did...
He climbed up the equipment...and LOVED walking across the 'bridge'... he knew I was taking photos, so he'd turn around every once in a while to see if I was taking his picture!
It was so much fun for this Mimi...
and I could tell it was so much fun for my little guy!
I lost count after 513 on the number of times he went down the slide (just kidding!)











Here he is on the 'bridge'...he LOVED walking across it...




 "AGAIN!!!" he would yell...

 and off he'd run to do it again...

 This is where he usually climbed up...
 All of a sudden, we heard a "Hi Mrs Johnston!!" and these 3 girls walked up.  Two of them are former students...  They remembered when Emerson and Benjamin were born...and immediately asked if this was one of my grandsons....  They pulled out their cell phones and started taking pictures... they were telling me how ADORABLE Emerson was... (Yep, I absolutely agree!)...
This little dog ran up...and the girls quickly diverted their picture taking to the dog...
Emerson went back to climbing...
 After the dog was called away by his owner, the girls started climbing on the equipment too.  They also decided to slide, only they went belly-down.  Serenity, one of my former students, apologized, saying she didn't mean to be a bad influence on Emerson.  I told her not to worry, he wasn't paying any attention to them sliding like that....

and then I saw him climbing back up to slide...
 and...he came down on his belly!  He was laughing, I was laughing...and so were the girls!

 "Ummm, I think I'll do it AGAIN!"
 And off he went...

What a great time we had at the park!  Riding his 'motorcycle' there...sliding... climbing on the equipment... walking on the 'bridge'... for 2-3 hours straight! I'm grateful we have the park close-by....but also that I had my little guy here for the weekend!
