Because I'm Scared of the Park

So the triplets are almost 15 months old and have never been to the park.  I have to tell you, I feel a bit guilty about that, but I just can't imagine attempting it.  Obviously, I couldn't do it solo, so that sorta limits when I could bring them.

My solution?  Bring the park to them...


Okay, maybe not completely.  But at least we can work on climbing and sliding.

It's been hysterical watching them learn to move around on this thing.

Cole climbed right up.  It took a few tries, but after about three or four "attempts", he's a smooth slider.


Eli chooses to just sit up top and suck his thumb.


Ava had some issues.  She loves to stand at the top and "shout to the room" all she has to say.  A few times, she's bounced a little too much and has slipped right off the back (Eli, too).  Today, she's finally figured out how to slide down and not land on her forehead.

Who needs the park?

Let me think of this, no germs except your own, no other kiddos being mean, and no dirt. I think this is a perfect idea!!!

Yay looks like you guys are having so much fun!
(Trust me besides swings your not missing anything at the park at least until they get a little older. I've attempted it a few times and their just too young for all that big stuff)
I love your slide gang. We've thought about investing in something similar, especially with winter creeping up.

I have never commented before, but momma you must embrace the park. It will become your lifesaver. Find one that is fenced in and go for it. I am telling you, the park gives you a good two to three hour nap when you get home. We go so much, that my girls now think if we are getting in the truck we are going to "play"

Give it a try and you will thank me for it. LOL!

the park is over-rated, just ask my 3 :) actually, i am sure they would like it if we took them more often. but, sadly, we don't. i think they have only been 2-3 times! we also have an indoor play-gym-thingy and they LOVE it!

looks like they love the new equipment and with winter about to arrive - the park can wait til spring!

That's hilarious! We did that for Charlotte her first winter when she was big enough for the park but the ground was covered in snow. It was awesome! The park will always be there...you can go next year!

Amy, they are getting too big! They aren't little babies anymore. :( I miss them and I can't wait to see all of you in June! It's only 8 months away!

Hello? Half the time I am terrified of going to the park with just the Gidster. He is so fast, and likes to run run run! Luckily, I am no longer waddling, but now I have a newborn in a sling with me all the time. So, I have been home for an entire month, and poor Gideon has not seen a playground for quite some time.
