Sunshine and swings

Yesterday we got to the park after swimming again, and stayed all afternoon.  Emma wrestled with some tricksy yarn, Ash knitted away at a pixie jacket for Talia, and I finished off those mysterious orange and blue stripes (successful pick-up-and-knit, proud)!

Lazy parenting in action (both on the crafting mamas part, and the daddies, who lay back and let the children do all the work)!

Connor adores Jenna, and follows her around.  She is very patient with all of the little ones, mostly.  I need to remember that when I'm frustrated with her tiring of their constant presence.

Sun in Morgan's eyes!

Me plus bean, plus shameful bought bread picnic behind us.  ;)

Children, just being children, in the sun.

Um, yes.  And the husbands, too, being children.  :)

Well, if I hadn't wanted to finish the knitting so badly I'd have been on the swings too!

    (And Rowan goes up and down slides all ways haha, she is such a funny monkey. She teaches the other toddlers on the park some tricks that have their parents rather worried. *blushes*)
