Our next BIG exploration was when LL and I decided to leave the boys at home and walk up to the hill to visit a large park that we driven by but we had never explored it before. We saw lots of people and little dogs and played on new playground.
I loved just having alone time with LL. She is growing up so fast and we don't always find time to talk about random things or just walk holding hands. We looked at the wind blowing the trees and talked about the plants around us. We eventually decided to follow a trail along an old railroad line through some trees. There was another family walking along so we did not feel completely alone but we did hold each other's hand tight as we went on our exploration. LL was very brave and even though we were getting a little worried about getting lost, we soon did find an entrance into the nearby neighbourhood. I had a good idea where we were at all times but I was happy when we found a familiar road and head back towards home. We stopped to get dinner items and so our little adventure was over.
LL and I had so fun that we took Daddy and Little Brother back to the playground for picnic the next day. I am sure that we will continue to have little walking adventures and look forward to exploring my town more. When I am at home, I find it really hard not to worrying about work, cleaning the house and general life worries but when exploring with my daughter I feel really happy and at peace.
