We headed to different playgrounds on the beach twice this week. It was a great way to get the kids out to burn off some energy and Todd & I got to enjoy the gorgeous view of the ocean! I think the idea of a playground beach side is great because it gives you something else to do at the beach if you get tired of the ocean and playing in the sand.
Michael loved going down the slide and climbing up to the top. Katie wanted to climb up to the top but was not a fan of going down the slide, even with someone else. So she practiced the stairs, as well as saying "got it" when she went down the steps. Both kids are went on the swings. They had huge blue tire swings for Michael and small swings for Katie. Katie had a blast in her swing and Michael pushed her too.
We spent over 2 hours at the playground one afternoon. It is amazing how much entertainment the playground can provide. We usually go to a local playground at least once a week and the kids can easily stay there for 2 hours. It also gets lots of energy out!
