This has been the summer of playgrounds. We've found that Tim naps better, and sleeps better and is generally much happier with not one but at least TWO visits to the playground each day. We built our summer days around it - especially on the really hot days, when we would head out to the slides and swings as early as possible (6:30am? 7am?) to get in a good play before the day got too hot.
Now that the weather is starting to cool, we're finding a new rhythm with lots of lovely crafty play inside. But I didn't want to forget our summer days in the playground.
