Fun with Aiden

Hannah has had a rough go of it with recovery from the surgery, the C-section and an "up at night" baby I called her and said since she also had Aiden for a couple days between time with his dad I would love to plan a play date for him. I picked him up today and we headed out.  We went to see some ducks along 86th and Penn but they weren't there so we headed over to Donaldson Park in Richfield and had fun flying a kite and playing with a giant Frisbee I got at Walgreens. I had given him his Easter basket before we left home and he had brought a Fruit Roll-up with him so we decided to sit on the bleachers and watch a few minutes of a high school baseball game between Northfield and Holy Angels while he ate that.  After rejoining the playground equipment we decided to make a run to MeDee's for a Happy Meal. Because of the chemo he is enduring he turned me down and only wanted to play on the indoor play area. I got one anyway and was able to convince him to eat the apple slices (talk about a cheap date). Our final run was to Edinborough Park which is an indoor chutes and ladders type of place.

He had a great time except when it was time to go he refused so I had to don my stocking feet and climb up through some of the equipment and talk him down (a little scary at my age, esp when you can't stand up in the thing ). After many tears we gathered our shoes, I carried him out and we headed home. He wanted to go to the library but we'll hit that one the next time. I forgot my camera until I realized my phone had a camera on it (I just bought a Sansung Galaxy IV) so I only got one picture but it was pretty good.
