Indoor Playground / Playdate

I had President's Day off of work, so Emily and I decided to meet at the Indoor Playground at the mall for a little playdate with Lorelai and Kye.I had never taken LL to the indoor playground before, so I was really excited to see how she did! We've actually only taken her to a playground a handful of times, so I thought she would have a blast since it's something that we don't do very often.

We force them to play together :)
But it usually doesn't last long!
When we got there, there weren't that many people/kids and it was pretty nice! Since she's not a walker or a climber yet, there wasn't a super lot for her to do. She was also being MEGA-clingy, so she didn't stray far from me at all. Kye had been there before and he took off without any hesitation!

One thing that she loved to do was slide down the slide! She's never gone down one by herself before, and she loved it! I bet we slid down the slide 100 times while we were there!

I got really annoyed after a little while because all of these really big kids came in and started playing crazy. I mean, these kids were probably 8 - 10 years old and this playground is NOT designed for kids that big. They were jumping off of things and standing on things that you're not supposed to stand on. They were running UP the slides, not taking turns, etc. I was not a happy camper. I had to actually get onto someone else's kid because he jumped off of something OVER LL and it made me so mad! He didn't even care that he could have hurt my child!

I did enjoy our time there, and we will go back, but I will try to make sure that we go at a time where we won't be swamped with big kids!

Kye was chasing her because she had a biscuit - haha!
