Play day

Yesterday was a beautiful day. Zack and I spent most of the day outdoors.
I packed up a lunch and off to the park we headed. It took a long time for little man to eat his lunch, he couldn't help but keep getting away from the table and trying to go catch a bird or two to share his sandwich with them.

Once the lunch was finally eaten we hit the playground.

I heard a lot of "Hey Mom, come chase me" and "Tag your it." He was having a blast.

On the see-saw with mommy.

He let go of the handle and was being bounced around.

The world is his playground.

Here he is being a rebel... climbing up a slide.

I don't know what it is about this picture but I just love it.
Once we left the park. We came home and took a nap. I don't know why but you would think with all the fresh air his nap would have been longer than normal. Not so, he slept for about 45 minutes. Certainly not enough time for me to get anything done nor to take a nap myself.

We then went out to play in the backyard. Several more hours of fresh air, running, playing soccer, picking all the weeds (oops I mean the littlest flowers) growing in the grass. By the time we went indoors for the evening, I was exhausted, he was still wired.

Why is it that whenever my kiddo has a lot of outdoor time he sleeps less and the sleep that he does get it not restful? He woke up 3 times last night, the first time when I went into his room he looked at me, hugged my neck and said "Mom, I think I need some warm milk."
