end of another week

By Tara Zandra | June 26, 2009

I remember when Friday meant nothing to me and neither did the weekends. Now it means Park Day and a lazy dinner to ease into a fun-filled weekend.

Chris was home sick for a few days this week so the girls and I cleared out so he could recouperate in peace. We went to an off-beat toy store, a book store, Whole Foods, and California Adventure as well as gymnastics for both kids. Chris slept and played a baseball video game :)

There were not many families at Park today, but we had a wonderful time with those that came. We sat in a lovely breeze in which I also thought I was in the shade, but my red arms and neckline would apparently disagree. I really don’t know how that happened, you’d think I’d notice sitting in the sun but I guess not.

My youngest decided to live up to her nickname of monkey and climbed a tree before I could stop her.


This is her over my head roughly 6 feet off the ground. For the record, I don’t actually allow my children to climb the trees at park because I don’t want the trees hurt with broken limbs and such since they aren’t my property. Needless to say, Tabitha was pretty miffed that not only did Daisy climb, but that I took a picture instead of scolding. I did prevent Daisy from going higher and got her down before reminding her of my rule. Somehow I don’t think she’s going to listen on this one and she may end up getting her way. I don’t know, maybe trees want to be climbed? The tree was happy to have a climber in “The Giving Tree,” maybe I should re-read it.

Tired rambling, time to sign off.

    You reminded me of something I hadn’t thought of in ages….we had tons of trees on our property growing up, but one was *my* tree. It was a yellow apple tree that I can remember climbing up in & sitting there waiting for my older siblings to get off the school bus. From my perch in the tree I could see the bus coming from what seemed like so many miles away.

    I’d say as long as the trees are established & the park doesn’t have any rules opposing..I’d let her be a little monkey. Lots of fun in climbing trees! : )
    Great picture!
