A Day Spent Outside is a Day Well Spent

It was such a gorgeous day in New York yesterday that I knew I would have to spend all of it outside with Charlotte.  We went to the park early in the morning, walked around together, played with a new dog friend and shared a tangerine on the steps.  Then she took a nap in my bed which was awesome because I got to sit around and play The Sims 4 because I am clearly a mature adult, and then when she woke up we had some lunch, met up with our neighbors and went to another park.  Lots of walking because she won’t go in the stroller or the wagon because she always has to find ways to make my life difficult, but I figure all the times I have to carry her it’s just extra exercise for me, right?  Right.  This was her face when we put her in the wagon though.  She is so pissed that it makes me laugh every time I look at it.

She had a really good time though and I love watching her be able to do more and more of the playground stuff without my help.  Here she is after she climbed up the big ladder.  She was very proud of herself and would clap every time she did it and make us clap with her.

Those damn pink shoes though.  She will not stop wearing those pink shoes!!  I HAVE SO MANY SHOES FOR YOU CHARLOTTE WHYYYYY.

Once Eric got home from softball the three of us went and took a nice walk to Red Mango for frozen yogurt.  It’s not a far walk but it’s not exactly up the block and Charlotte surprised me by walking the entire way home.  She really enjoyed her ice cream, so much so that she got off my lap to dance around the place and start sliding on the floor like she is in a music video.  I have a video of it but apparently I don’t pay for premium access on this site and therefore cannot share it with you here.  Which is annoying, but I guess that’s what happens when you choose the free option.  Oh well.

All in all it was an awesome day and she went to bed in like 3 minutes flat.  She woke up at 1:45 having a nightmare though, so that was fun.  It actually wasn’t that bad, she just cuddled up next to me and went right back to sleep.  There are worse things in the world than sleeping next to a cuddly toddler, am I right?

I hope you all had a great weekend!
