Spring has Sprung!
Today is a gorgeous spring day here in Central Pennsylvania! I took Benjamin and Nathaniel to a local park for awhile this afternoon and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This particular park has a lake with ducks and geese, as well as a really nice playground area. Several people were fishing at the lake, and lots of moms and kids were at the park. Nathaniel had his first swing ride today...I think he like it! Benjamin's favorite piece of equipment is a metal framed object with seats and a wheel. I think it is supposed to be a fire truck, but with the paint worn off, it's hard to tell. But to Benjamin and his ever-expanding imagination, it is a bus. He told anyone who would listen that they had to get on the bus and give him a ticket. Nathaniel and I rode the bus for awhile, as did several other kids. I love to watch Benjamin grow and learn and take what he learns in one place and apply it in another. Often he hears or sees something on an educational television program and it comes out later in a totally unexpected, yet intelligent, way. He is really at a fun age, and I anticipate a fun summer with him. Happy Spring! (BTW...the photo above is not from the park...just a happy spring pix!)
