First of all, a fire truck and an ambulance pulled up while we were eating. Apparently, something happened to someone near the bathroom. All I saw was someone on the ground and the stretcher. Seconds after the medics walk in with the stretcher a couple was about to sit down with their food, not knowing that anything was out of the ordinary. Until, they turned around and saw the commotion. Here's the catcher though, they picked up their trays and moved to the table right in front of the bathrooms. Not only that, the guy kept standing up, while he was eating, to get a better look. Now, I'm just as nosy as anyone else when tragedy happens. I mean, we all want to see what happened or know what's going on...but really!?!
Secondly, and most important, I got the urge to play on the playground with Areyna. Don't worry, for those of you who know how much of a stickler for rules I am, I read the sign carefully and it said parents were allowed. So, as soon as Areyna took off inside a tunnel I went in after her and surprised her. It was just like in the movies. "Where Are We Going, To The Pink Slide". Tunnel, Watch Tower, Slide...Tunnel, Watch Tower, Slide. (sorry if you're lost. You should really go rent the new Dora movie=) So anyway, I really think it meant a lot to Areyna for me to enter her world and play with her in there. Afterward she said "Mommy, I'm so thankful to you" followed by a huge smile and several "I Love You"s.
Josh put a video together of our first trip down the big pink slide. She was pretty proud of me=)
