"...it gives me a sense of enormous wellbeing..."
Very true words from the song Parklife, by the band Blur. With our newfound freedom of travel, the boys and I have been discovering all of the parks in our area. Today we didn't get home until dark and my Wittles and I had a blast. It feels great to see Donnie running and playing and meeting other children after being stuck at home for so long. He gets a much needed outlet and also takes in new experiences. I am thrilled that David can now join us comfortably. I know the new scenery is working wonders for his recovery, to say the least. It is good for mom too. The outdoors is so necessary.
From this point on, I feel the need to wax anecdotal and share lots of photos, so here they are. Enjoy!
|My awesome friend Laura went with us to Guth park in Corpus Christi. This marks the beginning of our fun times in the park.|
|These ducks were crazy! There were so many of them floating back and forth in a frenzy. We watched them for a long time, as they were quite mesmerizing.|
|Well hi there!|
|David's first time in a playground swing was a success!|
|David flying a kite with Laura. This was taken in Sinton at Rob and Bessie Welder Park.|
|An outdoor nap.|
|Father-son bonding. Last weekend the whole family went to Old Katy to watch some vintage baseball.|
|After watching some baseball, Donnie played in a bouncy castle then eyeballed this playground.|
|This was a very cool swing. I think we need to get one!|
|Having tons of fun!!!!|
On top of traveling to local parks and playgrounds, we get some outdoor time at home. We are certainly making up for lost time.
|En plein air painting in the backyard.|
|Checking out local critters.|
|My Bids picked these shades out on a trip to H-E-B. They are the coolest.|
And then, we are out and about again.
|Meet Rody. She occasionally accompanies us and prefers the front seat.|
|One of my favorite photos. David is so content, surrounded by all the green and the comfortable spring evening. Ahh.|
|Swinging again. Such good stuff.|
|Another boy shared some bread with Donnie and he fed the ducks. He could not resist chasing them. We promptly returned to the playground after he caught one.|
|Some tired guys after hours of playing in another park today. Happiness.|
