Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

The weather has been beautiful here lately, so the other day, I took Mungee to a neighborhood park.  

The sun was shining BRIGHT overhead and unfortunately there was no shade on the playground, so Mungee was unable to enjoy the bucket swings.  She sat on a table in the picnic area instead.

We people watched for a little while and then Mungee asked to go get a new toy at TJMaxx (this is the truth, I swear).  I lucked out in finding the Playskool Busy Lil Garden Bench on clearance for $20.  This is normally anywhere from $30-$45!

We left TJMaxx and went to Panera so I could get a pumpkin muffin (love) and a smoothie.  I decided to change Mungee's diaper first.  At some point in time, Mungee decided that she didn't like the NEW outfit she was wearing and that she was going to force her poo out of the back of her diaper.  The smell was unlike any other - I'll spare you the details.  Thank goodness I had a change of clothes for her in the diaper bag.  I got my muffin and smoothie and we sat at a table outside.  Mungee had had enough at this point and demanded to go home.  I asked her to be patient for just a few moments so I could enjoy my muffin and smoothie.  But an almost 8 month old doesn't quite yet know what patience is. 

To other moms of young babies, as warmer weather arrives, what kinds of outdoor activities will you do with your little ones to get the Vitamin D flowing?

Totally know about the diaper blow outs and how the always happen at the most inopportune times! Since the weather is so nice, we plan to go on many walks/runs, hit the park, do a little swimming in Gammie and Grandad's pool, and visit the beach for the first time. Can't wait!
