The Monday morning strolls are still going strong and we’ve even branched out to new locations. Last week we decided to go to Lullwater Park by Emory University and the mommy turnout was bigger than ever.
Few of us even knew that Lullwater existed and the park was a very pleasant discovery. Very leafy with a nice path to stroll along which took us down by a tranquil lake. It was decided that the location was well worth the hassle of trying to park there.
This morning we met at Grant Park and I hope everyone spent an enjoyable morning there too. I’d been to the zoo at this park before, and raced through the outskirts of it last week on the Hash run, but I’d not had a proper tour of the grounds. We took a leisurely meander along the pathways and were surprised at how large and nice the park is. Found a really cool playground to take Sam to when he’s old enough if we are still here, it was a well kept adventure playground complete with mini climbing wall. I rather wanted to be small again so I could have a go myself.
Baby mayhem ensued when it came to our usual tummy time break. The older babies made a beeline for each other and became a tangle of limbs and stolen toys. Fun, and very cute.
Afterwards Alyssa and I decided that we rather fancied going to Ru’Sans for lunch. We weren’t able to sway anyone else into accompanying us, but the call of sushi was too strong and so we went anyway.
Of course, I’d taken Sam’s huge chariot with us to the park and so when we got to the restaurant I wondered how I was going to be able to eat with Sam bouncing around on my knee. I needn’t have worried though because Sam showed us what a big boy he is now by happily sitting in a proper highchair and enjoying being at the table with us. He’s a treasure.
