Happy first day of summer! Just yesterday we were running the heater in the house to keep warm and the gray skies were becoming increasingly unwelcome. This morning, I woke up before six with the sun shining through the windows. I'm going to need to start waking up around six regularly, or I'll never get to run anymore. My routine used to be to go for a run after Trent left for school, but that's all changing now. Trent's school gets out next Monday! The private schools are done for the year and I'm already taking care of a couple of Trent's friends who are on summer vacation. The first day of summer, a beautiful day, some boys who just want to play, an unreasonably long school year....it all adds up to a good enough excuse for me to call Trent's school and keep him home for the day.
So what are we going to do today? I can tell you one thing, we won't be inside! Last summer, the kids and I set out on a mission to find the best parks in the area. This summer, we're doing it again. The picture below was taken at Wilburton Hill park in Bellevue. It's the only Eastside park I know of that has a zip line. They loved it.
