Play Time

I spent the weekend babysitting our three year old grandson. I enjoy spending time with Corson, although it is hard to keep up with him! Saturday was rainy and dreary but Sunday was bright and sunny, so it was off to the park.

The park is only a block from Lake Ontario and a few blocks for their home. It has the usual climbers and swings for the toddlers and older children, but this park also has a large area for sports (ie hockey) for the older kids and a water park for the really warm days - it's a wonderful place to spend time.

Corson loooooves to swing. He could spend all day swinging - he really enjoyed his baby swing too. AFter spending a few hours pushing him, your arms feel like they have had a workout at the gym. His constant chant is "higher Nanny, higher"!

I find it really relaxing to just watch the small children at play. That's their entire world - play, play and more play and they are really good at it. I was annoyed that I had forgotten my camera, but I've posted a few pictures from last week at the park near our house. I'm also posting one of my favourite pictures of Corson - one of those miracle pictures that I managed to capture - a picture that you couldn't possibly pose for no matter how hard you tried. I love it and hope you enjoy them, too.

Oh my gosh, Brenda! Corson is getting so big! Quite a handsome little fellow too!! You're right, that last picture is one in a million!! You should submit it for competion somewhere.....though I wouldn't have a clue as to where. But, it's sooooo cool!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
