Although my boys have yet to meet a playground they didn’t like, they are just as pleased playing with the sticks, stones, acorn shells, or pine cones scattered around each playground. (Shoot, even the mulch and the dirt beneath them holds some fascination!) The weather here in Central PA has been absolutely glorious, so we’ve been hitting the playgrounds pretty hard. Asher & Zephy treat these expeditions as only the finest connoisseurs of playgrounds and parks can. They sample the bouquet of the playground mulch. Then, they determine which slide to go down based on its intensity and hue. Next, they drink in all of the wet, earthy smells and savor the sweet aromas of freshly snapped sticks. And finally they taste (literally) the salty and metallic rocks which are scattered around the park.
I thought I’d take you on a picture walk so you can experience all the simple joys of little boys!
