It was so fun watching our daughter play at the new playground we built in our backyard.
She honestly was having the time of her life whenever she would be out there.
It was impossible to get her to quit climbing up the slide, but at least she was regularly having a great time. It was fine having her play out there while the weather was still warm. It was always challenging getting her to come back inside the house though. Usually she would want to play outside until dinner was ready, and even then she just wanted to stay outside. There were some summer days when I had to get her back in the house for some air conditioning breaks. We had some pretty hot days this past hot season, but we had a lot of good times too. Up until recently, there were no issues with our daughter playing outside. She had to wear a sweater or jacket until we finally said she couldn’t go out there because it was too cold and windy. We could feel the winter months approaching. Fortunately, we had our heating system serviced and we have been utilizing it lately to keep warm in the household. Our daughter was angry about not going out to the playground for a little while, but now she doesn’t seem to think about it too much. She’ll be about to go have fun outside again when we get some snow. We’ll build a snowman and who knows, maybe she can still go down the slide a couple of times when she’s bundled up. But she’ll be having great times for sure after the winter season is over! I can’t wait until that time where we can shut off the heating system.
