We took time out from couponing to see if Scarlett would enjoy the park.
Apparently there are loads of parks in our area so I printed out directions to five of them and we excitedly headed off to find the first one.
It was also the LAST park we visited for the day. I really think Scarlett would have liked the bucket swings--I mean she loved her baby swing and she knows no greater joy than getting tossed in the air like a rag doll.
There was a moment there when it really could have gone either way...
Unfortunately it went the wrong way, another child at the park took that moment to weep, wail, and gnash his teeth. Which started a chain reaction. Scarlett started crying causing another boy in the swing next to her to start crying and so on and so forth. So we picked a different piece of equipment hoping for a more positive outcome.
Scarlett couldn't seem to figure out why we were laying her down on the slide. She kept trying to sit up. She thought it was great watching me go down but when I took her with me she made no expression whatsoever. She seriously could not have looked more indifferent. I did feel her tense slightly when I went down the covered slide but that was about it. We may wait a while before we try the other four parks.
I'm working my way through the poultry section and I realized that I was cooking the recipe pictured on the cover of the book. This is my 256th recipe of 563! I thought it was picture worthy.
I highly recommend the Lemon-Basil Chicken deliciousness. We wish we could share it with you.
