"Lazy" Sunday with a toddler

After a 2 hour nap this morning.  (I could not believe it!)  He got up and wanted to play with his new shopping cart.

 He loves that shopping cart. He has to carry everywhere.  Which translates to mom or dad carrying it everywhere.

I then got it in my head to go on a picnic at the park.  Sort of a crazy idea with a fearless toddler and no other adult, but I think the heat was getting to me.  He had to play on the playground and go on the slide.  He climbed up there all by himself.  I could not believe it!

 The slide was taller than I was and I could not reach him when he was at the top.  But he loves a slide and he climbs fairly well, so it worked out all right.  After we played on all the equipment, we sat down for a minute (literally) to eat.  I managed to catch the following picture:

I cannot believe that he is big enough to sit at a picnic table!

The best part about the trip to the park was that it wore him out, and he is now napping again.  Hooray for the nap time!

I love how his cheeks are pink from paying so hard!
