Climb Every Mountain

Summer is in full swing and JuJu&Memes have been making the most of it. Check out this vid of the boys climbing up a STEEP hill, no questions asked. 

​​
This was at Cromwell Valley Park, by their natural playground. I can remember the first time Memes encountered a hill like this- it was at Oregon Ridge Nature Center’s natural playground. They have ropes going up theirs to help the kids (and parents) out. At the time, Memes physically wasn’t able to climb it at all. How amazing is it to watch their endurance and strength increase? Get it boys!!!!

Where have we been?!?

#crew
Outside. We’ve been outside. From the second he wakes up until the second I make him come in, Memes wants to be outside. It’s fine with me. We just wander. He’s pretty much the Mayor of the Neighborhood. 
In other news,The Avenue at White Marsh has started up their Tots at 10 program again. The first Thursday of every month they close off the central part of the avenue and let the Tots run amuck. Each event has a different theme. Today’s was Ravens and Orioles complete with pictures with the birds (no, we did not get any. The line was insane but I noticed it did move fast). Every Tots at 10 there are businesses set up throughout offering coupons, goodies, and kid activities. IKEA had a tent set up with a play rug and a bunch of there great toys (#love). Kids First Swim had buckets of bubbles, there’s always the tot sized soccer goals set up with plenty of balls to kick around. The restaurants offer deals aplenty. It really is a fun event and something we look forward to. Here’s June’s event-Tots @ 10

I almost forgot (how could I?!)….The Avenue has done a HUGE revamp. Turf area( ice skating rink in winter!),stage, swinging bench chairs, football table, lounge like seating. It is sooooooo chill. Head up there these summer evenings, grab a Coldstone, and cop a squat. 😊

Meme’s is TWO

James turned two on April 14. 


This quote captures how I have felt since I first felt him move in my belly…magicπŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«
“Can you remember the first time you saw a sunrise? The first time your toes felt sand? The first time you tasted chocolate? Probably not; you were too young to remember. Five minutes before those experiences happened you were just cruising right along, thinking life was great as is. But then, you saw that stunning orange sunrise and you felt that warm sand between your toes and you tasted that delicious piece of chocolate and you knew. You knew life just became infinitely better in every way because you experienced magic. And motherhood is kind of like that, only a million times better.”

PLAYGROUNDS!!

🌼🌼Spring is springing🌷🌷

Click here for Cool Progeny’s List of the best Baltimore Playgrounds!! We are so lucky to have so many well maintained , clean playgrounds throughout our area!

Meme’s faves are Meadowood Regional Park– toddler playground and “big kid” playground,fields galore, walk/run track, small stream, pavilions! 

The most new beauty,Angel Park Playground built with love by thousands of volunteers, Angel Park was inspired by the loss of a couple’s baby and became a vision of hope and inspiration. Color throughout and some of the most unique playground equipment we’ve seen, this is truly a welcome addition to the Perry Hall neighborhood. Located right next to Perry Hall Library ( which in Meme’s opinion has, one of the best children’s play areas), you can make a whole day of this outing!

Edit to add: we actually went to Angel Park today and I went crazy taking pics for ya’ll so you can see how awesome it is:
