Our afternoon walk

Today we had a lot of fun. Brennan, Jackson, Dixie and I went on a walk around our neighborhood. I am surprised by how much landscaping is in our neighborhood. Maybe everyone's neighborhoods have lots of pretty flowers and bushes and gardens and I just never noticed.

We walked to the local elementary school, since it is closed, and played at the playground for a bit. Jackson is very adventurous and climbed up the steps to the slide all by himself. Brennan eventually became brave on his own and crossed this obstacle course they have alone. Dixie just laid under the slide.

On our way home, we stopped by the pool to see about swimming lessons for Brennan and a summer pass. Swim lessons are $80 (ugh!, last year they were $20) and a swim pass is $40 a person…you can't share a swim pass, which seems silly. Since we probably won't even go swimming 10 times this summer, we will skip the swim pass for this year…use the sprinkler parks with the mother's group if we really get the swim bug, but we are still contemplating swim lessons.

Overall we had a lot of fun and got some good exercise. We are trying to be outside as much as possible, before it gets hot around here!
