The past couple of days the weather has been incredible. Usually the summer in Maryland is just dreadful to me. I used to like it when I was younger but there is something about intense heat and humidity that I don't like anymore. I think it was triggered around my brother's death and I associate both with that time. Anyway, the weather has been so nice. It is definitely a gift from God. I walked out of the door yesterday morning to take the trash out and when expecting to be hit with a wall of heat, it actually was cool.
So tonight we were feeling rather adventurous as parents... well, maybe that was I and I convinced Dave it would work out. Dave got a coupon for Famous Dave's from his coworker and we were going to get take out. I thought it would be fun to have a family dinner out. I don't know how fun it was, but we made it through. They were particularly wild tonight. At least they weren't screaming their lungs out. After we were on our way home, I remembered this playground I had always wanted to take Henry to but it hadn't work out yet. It is incredible! The best playground ever.
It was built in honor of a six year old girl who was killed by a drunk driver when crossing the street with her family. Very sad story. But something incredible came out of a tragedy that is touching the lives of many families.
Henry had a blast and already informed us we will be going back tomorrow night. Hudson loved it too. Very magical place for little kids.
