Playground day

Last Saturday, Aaron had to work, so the girls and I were trying to figure out what to do. We didn't have a ton of time before lunch and nap, so the children's museum was out. But it was beautiful outside, and not disgustingly humid. Playground time!

The girls spent a lot of time climbing on this... climby thing.

I have no idea what to call it! There's one at this one playground, but I've never seen them anywhere else.

Whatever it really is called, Maisie quickly decided that she was a spider, and it was her web.

In this picture, she's lecturing me about how she's going to eat! me! up! if I get any closer to her web. Duly noted! Ella didn't get eaten, though - she was a baby sister spider.

Her climbing wasn't as successful, despite Maisie's encouragement.

When she couldn't get up that one, Ella tried a different tack...

But that wasn't successful either.

So the girls moved on to a structure that they could both enjoy: the pirate ship!
While Ella peeked out through the porthole on the bottom...

...Maisie kept out a sharp eye from the deck. Which is necessary. After all, there's strange animals in these waters....
