New Park in February

So today begins my 31 day challenge to myself. ;) Let's see if I can do it!

So this weekend was a rainy weekend. Remember how I said my goal was to go to a new park once a month for this year with the kids? Well, since it was raining I didn't think I was going to be able to do it. But Sunday was BEAUTIFUL! As I was leaving church Sunday morning, I said to myself why don't we go to the park?! So when I got home I told Surbjit and he was in. We all ate lunch and then after lunch we drove to Arnold/Cypress Park in Cypress. We figured, they don't nap anyway so let's wear them out! (yes I guess that's a post for another day LOL!)

We got there around 12:30 and stayed until 2:30. The kids had fun swinging, sliding and climbing. Connor made a friend (but I was trying not to have him bug them either since they were there for what looked like a birthday party). We only had one fall (Emily fell down a little stair but was ok and no worse for wear).

Here are the two main playground structures in the park. Perfect when you have both bigger kids:

And Littler Kids

They also have PLENTY of swings. Both baby swings and big kid swings:

And the play structures had lots of stuff to climb and explore:

And the highlight for Connor and Emily (although Taylor did try it too) was the zip line:

There is also a restroom right next to the playground structure which is perfect when you have little kids who wait until the last minute to say they have to go potty. (Can you tell I'm talking about Connor?) =)

Of course we get not 2 blocks away from the park and both Emily and Taylor are asleep in their car seats. We drove around for awhile. Connor fell asleep too. When we got home, everyone went in their beds. Connor got out and wanted to wake up. Emily stayed in her bed playing. And Taylor went back to sleep and slept until 4:30. My sleeper.

So my park challenge is still going and I'm still on track. ;)
