Thank You First Baptist

Many of you Normanites have already experienced the amazing playground at First Baptist Church.  If you haven't, you should check it out.  It's open to the public from dawn to dusk all week long, excluding the hours between 10-11am and 4-5pm on weekdays.  The playground is arranged in such a way that children of all ages will find something made just for their size!  Layla and Jenna had their first crack at it a couple of weeks ago and loved it!   

Jenna and Daddy on the teeter totter.  I don't know what it is about this picture, but she looks so grown up to me!

The girls are old pros at the swings.  They've had plenty of practice at our neighborhood park and at Aunt Devin and Uncle Tony's.  

There is a really neat instrument section in the middle of the playground.  Layla and Jenna have always been into instruments (thanks to Gymboree) and this time was no different.  

Layla: "Listen to me jam!"

Jenna: "Gosh, I'm good at the bongos!"

The entire surface area of the playground is covered with this cushy turf.  It's funny how we don't anticipate how the girls will react to new experiences.  At first, Jenna wasn't sure about crawling around on this stuff.  She didn't want her hands or legs to touch it.        

But, she quickly adapted...

...and was able to enjoy a nice, cool drink on this unseasonably warm day!

Layla, on the other hand, was not having this turf stuff at all!

She preferred Daddy's lap instead.  

Then she talked him into taking her on the big kid toy!

Jenna opted for the toy in her age group.  

Jenna: "Gosh, I'm good at this too!"

Back at it on the swings!  Layla was really monopolizing on the Daddy time.  

But that was okay, Jenna was having a ball entertaining herself!

Layla taking a break for a snack...

...and drink.

Of course, when Jenna saw her sister snacking, she came running over!

We had such a good time.  Thank you First Baptist for sharing your playground with us!  We will definitely be back!
