We went to this new park yesterday with S's parents and you can see the giant slide in the background. Having S's parents there meant S and I could actually go do a few "adult" things. Turns out that was the slide and the diving board. It was so much fun. I can't tell you the last time I went down a slide probably close to 15 years ago. Same with the diving board...I can't tell you the last time I was on a diving board. In fact, there was a time when I even tried diving competitively so it all brought back amazing memories (that's me in the middle)
That is definitely one of the things that I hadn't necessarily thought about when I was pregnant but is easily one of the best parts about being parents. It forces you to shed the "adult" persona and be a kid, enjoy the little things in life and just stop, take a deep breathe and make a memory. (I won't even go into the fitness benefits, I think you can figure out...when you are more active, you burn more calories...I'm just saying!)
I wasn't an adult yesterday, I was a kid and I loved every minute of it! Thanks E for giving me that!
Hope you had a happy 4th! From S, E and I!
What did you do?
