This morning we went to the park. A nice big park, with a trail looping a lake, winding through lovely green woods. Still exploring our new neighborhood. It’s so fun finding new places to visit.
We didn’t walk far. Small children and pregnant women do not make for heroic expeditions. I’m still getting used to that. I have a hard time dampening that voice that wants to go a little further down the trail, see a little more. We saw geese with goslings and swans with cygnets, lots of dogs and bicycles and a girl on roller-blades, families with kids, joggers, fishermen, seagulls, rocks. Bella threw sticks in the water, Sophie toddled around and threw pebbles. We ate a picnic lunch. The weather was perfect, sunny and cool with a light breeze.
Of course there was no proper playground with swings and slides so we had to stop and let Bella play for a bit at the town playground near our house on the way home.
