I may have catnapped for a few minutes while Katie played.
Swinging with one of her best friends (our neighbor), Kayleigh.
We took the kids to a somewhat local playground since the weather was so nice. We sat on a blanket while they played…
We spent the morning with friends at one of the Burke Lake Park playgrounds. Liam will be three and Katie will be five…yet they get along like gangbusters.
This has come about over the last few days. She gets braver each time.
The usual view: Katie swinging and Kayleigh being pushed.
Since we live just around the corner she is allowed to sit in the passenger seat.
Back to real life…taking Katie to the park with friends.
She then wanted to jump off the play structure that’s 6′ off the ground (that level behind her head). I told her it was too high and she might get hurt.
“No. I’ll just brush off my hands like this.” 😳
So I compromised and held her hand as she jumped. She still fell on her butt, bumped her knee, and was covered in wood chips…but she did it!
I may or may not have fought (and won!) my first ever Póke Gym, thanks to the gentle prodding of a new friend Caitlin who was also fighting at the time. It didn’t last long but I did it. Twice, even! Owen will be so proud. And yes, I may be getting slightly more hooked on this silly game.
Of course, this wasn’t planned—we just went to the “goose park” (as Katie likes to call it) to play at the playground. There happened to be a Póke Stop right there so that was convenient to grab balls and potions and such while the kids played. Then we walked down to the marina (the geese!) and there was a gym there… After Caitlin assured me I couldn’t possibly hurt anything in Owen’s account or kill his characters, I agreed to fight the gym. I didn’t know what I was doing, but she said she didn’t, either, and nothing bad would happen. Okay, then… And she was right. We had enough potions to heal everything and it was kinda fun. But I did have to laugh knowing that Owen would totally know which Pókemon to use to fight the best and I was just pointing and poking without any knowledge whatsoever. Good times.
