Another day in which we had every intention of getting out of the house early, but again for some reason this task took a while. Eventually the kids ran out to the back of the house to play on the lawn.
I washed and cut up some delicious fruit as a mid day snack for everyone.
I came back inside, and shortly after heard Kian run in with a piece of paper. "Mommy", said Kian, "Richard drew Hannah and I a picture of Sam so we don't forget him when we go back home".
We finally managed to get out of the house and head towards the playground. Unfortunately, it started raining. With the way rain comes and goes here, we decided to go towards the playground in Louisburgh (a different playground than last time) and see if the rain would clear up by the time we got there.
The playground seemed like plenty of fun, if only the drizzling would go away. Since we are too stubborn, we just put on our rain coats and continued with playing. In hindsight, we should have just abandoned ship and gone back home...
Both kids wanted to be pushed on the swings. Sure we said.
Shortly after all sorts of craziness happened. Kian was trying to jump off the swing, since according to him he was all done swinging, but a combination of trying to jump while swinging fast, and a wet slippery swing, sent Kian flying off and landing on his chin!
AAAA....As we rushed towards him to see the damage, Hannah fell off the swing!
Kian's chin thankfully was just a bad bang up, soon to be a nice bruise, and Hannah was pretty unscathed.
We headed back home to ice Kian's chin with our ice pops :)
Kian stopped crying, and almost forgot about it after 20 minutes or so. He decided to color a Batman picture for Richard, as a thank you since he drew the Sam picture for him and Hannah.
And you know what happens after a boy colors a Batman picture? But of course, he will want to go and dress up as Batman and jump off rocks!
Thankfully, the gliding didn't end with a new injury.
And such was the story of a the day of mishaps.
