This is the park near our house, which was recently damaged in a big windstorm, unfortunately. It lost a huge shade tree, which I assume is what fell on the playground and damaged it. The kids have loved climbing through this tunnel since they were really little.
Here they are on the slide, along with a good friend we hang out with a lot. My two are wearing fleece hats that I made for them!
local food co-op, where we do the majority of our food shopping. The kids were totally fascinated by this machinery that was (and still is, I think) sitting on the tracks.
Another picture taken at the co-op, this time outside on the patio. They now carry local Straus creamery soft-serve ice cream! Unfortunately, the only flavor available that day was chocolate, and since brown is not either yellow or pink (the color requirements for my kids for ice cream), we went inside to pick some single servings from the freezer. We often eat lunch here, and usually sit outside on the patio. I grab this table whenever I can, since the kids are fascinated by the vegetable mosaic. On this particular day, we rode our bikes, and Tadpole is so attached to her new bike helmet that she doesn't like to take it off once she's put it on for the day.
This is another picture that represents a great memory for me of my children's childhood. On weekend mornings, we often leave the house early, before Papi gets up, and go downtown to have a bagel at our local bagel place, Posh bagels. We bring some toys, and the kids are usually happy to munch and play for a long time. They love bagels - I usually get whole wheat with plain cream cheese. I really enjoy these quiet early mornings with my two favorite munchkins. In the summer, we sometimes take our bagels out to one of the nearby fountains or plazas to enjoy the morning sunshine.
