We spent all of last week at my parent’s house in NY and even though we’ve been back for almost a week I feel like I’m just starting to get back into the swing of things now. That six hour drive with two kids all by myself can really get to me sometimes and I often just want to laze around after a week with my crazy family!
I’m almost always surprised by the similarities between where my parents live and were I spent many years of my life and where I live now. For example with both live very close to local schools. So close that we can hear the kids playing on the playground. My parents live much closer to their local school than we do to ours, so close in fact that they can often hear the announcements!
I only have a 5 seater so going to the park with four car seats is impossible (my two youngest siblings are still car seat age) but luckily even though the school that my parents live near housed 6, 7, and 8th graders for many many years it’s now for 4th, 5th and 6th grade which means that they added a playground.
It’s a short walk so we went over and even though it was small Mason loved the slide. Kyla wasn’t a fan because it was so high until she went down with her brother of course.
Everything seems to be more fun when he’s around!
