Saturday I took the kids to a really cool park nearby. They have an excellent playground and a huge astroturf football/soccer field. We had one of those unusually mild January days where the sun was shining the whole time and it was comfortable without a jacket. We were there for FIVE HOURS!
Evan and Eliana would wear themselves out on the playground. Take a juice/snack break, then they wanted to play soccer on the big field. They really had a great time. Then it was time for a juice break, then back to the playground again! Evan met another little boy, also named Evan! He was 5 years old, and Evan and Evan had a lot of fun playing soccer together. We played until the sun set. If I would have let them, they would have stayed until midnight, I'm sure.

There was a guy there flying some neat model planes! The kids loved this, but I don't think the guy was to crazy about having kids nearby. He folded the wings up and carried it back to his car as soon as I took this shot. I think he was afraid of kids touching the plane. He had about half a dozen of these planes.
Then it was bedtime.
