I Get Knocked Down, But I Get Up Again...

Well, not exactly, but close enough. Jillian and I went to check out this playground today that Melissa and Dave told us about. It's kind of off the beaten path, but was really nice and VERY not crowded - it was just us and another mom with two school aged girls.

It took Jillian a while to warm up to it, but she loved crawling through the tunnel.

The swings are always a hit.

Then we tried out one of the sliding boards. She was very excited about climbing UP the slide.

We weren't so sure about going down, though. She tried once on her bottom, then decided it was more fun to climb up the slide and just slide back down on her belly.

After the slide experience, Jillian was crawling all over the thing.

She practiced her driving skills.

She played with the planet "spinners" - Jillian believes that Pluto IS, in fact, a planet.

Then we rounded out the excursion with a ride on the springy pelican.

she looks very tiny compared to the playground equipment in that first pic!

You are so good about taking her to all kinds of fun places! Does it make me a bad mother that I sit at home and say, "just play with that stick, buddy!"? :-) Looks like a great park!

Looks like little Ms. Jilly had a good time. She's so adventurous. Reminds me of a little guy I know :-)
