A beautiful day

Today it was supposed to thunderstorm all day long. I had an evil WIC appointment so I decided to leave over an hour early. I had to drop off some final paperwork to Roana's school so she could start with no problems. Then off to the bus stop so we could go to the park across from the appointment. The park is named Memorial Park. This is one of my favorite parks in the city. It has a huge Lake and a huge playground. Until this day I always assumed the park was named because of a firefighters monument built there. Today I found more monuments and I was amazed by the beauty of them. I have lived here for almost 6 years and never saw them before. I walked around these amazing monuments for at least 10 minutes and reflected on life.

We walked around the park a little more and saw geese and ducks. I love animals and so do my kids. I loved that the geese were not angry and came over to look for food. I loved they were friendly and that lil Ro could almost touch them. But that is not what we were there for.
Next Lil Ro was getting fussy so we walked over to the playground. I prayed he would stay off the big structure but he growing too fast for his britches. He jumped out of our stroller and ran over to the two story play structure. He climbed on the rock climbing wall and scaled it easy. Then he ran down to the lower slide and slid right down. He ran over to the ropes and climbed those too. He then ran to the 3 story spiral slide and slid down. My heart stopped as he slid down and looked over the side. He did it. My baby is a lil man. He played so hard with the big kids and I tried to relax but I insist I have to be around my boy in case something happens. The hour passed way too quickly and we both were worn out.

We headed over to our WIC appointment and all is well there thank goodness. I am thinking of applying for a job over there as they are hiring for people like me. It would be a start in the career I want but I also dread leaving my Lil Man in daycare. I will try and decide if they call me back what happens.

Big Ro was having some problems at work. Those are starting to sort themselves out. Keep that in your prayers and if it is meant to be I will update. Life is going ok so far. I think tommorrow I am taking Lil Man to the park. A different one possibly. I am going to cherish this last week we have together. I am going to devote my time to him. Life is good and I am living it. I apologize for all the pictures but it seems we had a good photo day. Enjoy.
