Another Day With Aidan

So last Saturday I took Aidan for a couple of hours. We were going to go to another jumping indoor playground but the one I knew how to get to ended up being closed so we played in the park all day instead. I picked him up at about 9am and we got to the park at about 9:30am. We played an the first playground we came to for about an hour and then decided to move on and see what else we could find.

We found a beach volleyball court and chose to play in the sand. We started to build a sandcastle. The sand on the top was dry but digging some up from underneath we found some nice wet sand to make our castle with. We only got to play in the sand for about half an hour because some other people came who wanted to pay volleyball and since we were just playing in the sand I told Aidan we had to go find something else to play with. He was perfectly okay with it. Don't you just love 3 year olds.

So we walked over to the lake area that was not very far away. Aidan saw some ducks and decided to run after them. Then he found a stick that he threw around for a while, until it landed to far into the water to get. We then went walking around for a bit sliding our feet in the grass to get the mud off our shoes.
We then found another playground and went to go play there for a while. After another hour of playing we decided to go see if the jumping place was open. It wasn't so we went to get lunch. We ate at Mc Donald's and there was a playscape so after eating Aidan played for a good half hour on the playscape.

We then went to the HEB Plus to get water and ice cream before going back to the park for a little. While in HEB Aidan got to show me how good he was at waiting. When we checked out the cashier gave him a Buddy Buck and we went to go play the machine but there was already a line of two children in front of us and one finishing up. He waited so quietly for his turn and never asked once if it was his turn. He is such a patient child.

We then headed back to the park where we ate our ice cream and played on a playground again. Then we went on a walk. We walked across a bridge that had rocks at the bottom that I let him explore on for a bit. Then when we were walking back to the car he saw some flowers that he wanted to pick. He is such a sweet little boy. After the flower picking it was back to the car and back home for Aidan. We had such a fun couple of hours. Another day will probably be in order sometime this summer.
