The park and Connors Farm

Yesterday we went to a new park in the area while we were out and about.  There was a big tall slide like they had never seen before.  Both of them loved to climb up the stairs but only Madison was brave enough to scoot herself to the edge and down.  The first time she did it I was at the top with them so she went flying off the end of the slide and landed on her butt.  She laughed, got up and ran back up the stairs.  All the while Jackson sat at the top and watched her.  I went down with him a few times and he loved it but he just didn't want to go down by himself.

After the park we drove to Topsfield to pick up my print from the fair and my ribbon.  On the way home we went to another farm in the area.  They had bouncy houses and we had one all to ourselves!  It was one of the ones that is an obstacle course.  We must have spent 45 minutes in there.
The ladder getting to the top was NOT easy to get up alone let alone pushing two toddlers up ahead of you.  And it was really high.  We went up it three times and each time I was so afraid we were all going to tumble back down to the bottom.  I don't think we would have gotten hurt but it would have been scary.

Maddie's hair was wild and crazy with static

Jackson as usual loved the tractor!

At one point Jackson went running toward that pond.  He had no intention of stopping at the edge.  I ran after as fast as I could and caught him literally as his front foot was about to step down the small embankment.  I was yelling to him too so when I finally grabbed him and yelled I ended up scaring the crap out of him and he cried for quite a while.

Madison looks like she is falling in that one slide photo! She looks so happy! I love the photos.
