Carter and Nathaniel enjoyed their first official outside play day of 2010 just down the street at Stanley Park, where Karen managed to keep two very busy boys confined to the grounds and out of trouble with the locals.
Of course, I couldn't resist the temptation to pay a surprise visit and snuck out of work on an "errand", just as the excitement was ramping up.
The playground's kid-friendly offerings were instant hits, which doesn't bode well for my future at amusement parks--today it's the swings--tomorrow: Drop Zone's 200 foot, 62 mile-per-hour plummet...
Unfortunately, an hour flies by a lot faster on the outside than it does baking under the flourescents in the workplace, and I had to head back. As Karen prepared lunch, the boys retired back to the stroller for some people-watching and light reading.
Could there be a more perfect way to usher in the first day of spring?
