A day at the park

We've started a Sunday night tradition since school started. After naps we pack up and head out to a park. Tonight was great except that the park we chose had fairground rides invade. We explained to the boys that we were there to play at the park and not on the rides. Monkey had a hard time breathing due to his asthma and the weather change. Luckily, we took the inhaler with us. After running around for about 10 minutes he was having trouble.

We left the playground equipment and decided to slow down and climb the stairs slowly and walk around the perimeter of the park, which also has a running path of about 1 1/2 miles. We took a nice leisurely walk around the park. It was a beautiful evening with just the right breeze. We stopped once or twice to play on some equipment and to pet a passing puppy. He was the cutest little thing... a cross between a beagle and a boxer. He was so sweet. Chopsy was completely in love with him.

We caught a gorgeous sunset and then headed home for a quick dinner, baths, and bed.

What a fun tradition! We are going to keep it up as long as the weather allows.
