Puppets and Park Play
I took the girls up to Phoenix yesterday to see Hotel Saguaro at the Great Arizona Puppet Theater and to play at the park across the street. We also enjoyed a lovely picnic and the company of Nanny and cousins Cameron and Colby. The show itself was cute and educational.
Leah was not really into the whole sitting thing, but was well behaved. I am also so pleased when my kids act appropriately when we are out. They are far from "prefect", but when you look around at kids today it seems someone has forgotten to teach them how to behave in public settings. I think the key for me is giving them outlets to let loose and be 'wild' because kids need that. The girls knew they would get some park time after the show yesterday and exercising self control for 45 minutes was the way to get that park time.
My girls love a picnic. We rarely see ants in the desert so other than some overly-friendly pigeons the picnic was great! I think PB & J just tastes better on a blanket eaten outside! Leah likes her lunch with a side of grass! Geesh!
