Sunday was unseasonably warm in Austin, and we decided to take Corbin and Lynley on a picnic after church. Our neighborhood has a few play centers, but none of them have swing sets. This has been disappointing because the twins can’t really climb and play on slides or jungle gyms without getting hurt yet, and it’s also not something that I can handle by myself. So, I’ve been on the hunt for a park closer than a 20-minute drive.
One day after a trip to town, Corbin and Lynley fell asleep before we made it all the way home, so in an effort not to wake them, I just drove around for a little while longer. I highly recommend this because you never know what you might find! I was incredibly excited to see a little play area in a neighborhood very close by complete with two baby swings, two big kid swings and a picnic table. Every time we’ve driven past it since, it’s always empty. Score!
So, we ventured over to the park after church, and Corbin and Lynley ate lunch together atop the picnic table and looked around pointing at things. They were hardly interested in their food and could not wait to take a turn in the swings. They absolutely loved it. This was their second time in the park swings, and we captured some great photos. Afterwards, Corbin also enjoyed playing in the grass… BOYS!
|I love Corbin’s “photobomb” face in the background!|
I am absolutely in love with this photo of Lynley. She has become more beautiful each day that her strawberry hair gets thicker. I just look at her and stare. She takes my breathe away. I am even more fond of her red locks when she lets me dress them up! Sadly, that does not happen much anymore because she pulls off any headbands immediately, and her hair on top isn’t quite long enough to hold hairclips in more than about 30 minutes. I also have the problem of Corbin plucking them off her head!
I think we have found a solution… Girlie Glue. I highly recommend this product! It’s an all-natural glue made from agave nectar that adheres hair accessories to the baldest of baby heads. Just dab a little glue on the the back of the bow and press it down. Voila! It’s mess-free and fuss-free, and the glue washes away with a little water.
It lasted us a few hours, and that is a win. It made it through church and Corbin, and the wind at the park. It did not however make it through Daddy! It fell off when Derrick was rocking her before her nap. Bows should be removed anyway, especially these since they are so small and could be a choking hazard. I’ll definitely remember to remove them in the future after our little scare of thinking she ate it! The little flower was no where to be found in her hair, crib, clothing or the play room, and we finally found it near Daddy’s chair, and realized it fell off before she went to sleep. Thank goodness I would not be looking for it in a diaper for the next week! Ahhhhhh
