It is probably not all that uncommon to love Saturday mornings, and I am definitely no exception to this! I love Saturday mornings! A typical Saturday morning for us involves a run in Central Park, then taking Jonah to a playground in the park. On the walk home we usually stop and get some coffee and a bagel or something like that.
This morning we did just those things... we ran the 6 mile loop in Central Park. I think it was toughest for Jonah. He had to stay mostly still in his stroller for 50+ minutes. He did pretty well. He had a toy, snacks, and had the entertainment of taking off his shoes and socks while in his stroller. The taking off of his shoes and socks is a pretty common occurrence while in his stroller now. Luckily the weather is warm enough now that generally I don't care. He has even been 'trained' to hand me each of his shoes and socks as he takes them off. He takes a shoe off, holds it up over his head so that I can take it from him and then follows with the sock. I think its pretty cute.
Anyways, after we went on our run, we took Jonah to a big playground in Central Park. He loves it. He just runs around everywhere and climbs on anything he can. He also loves the slides now. There is a big slide that Mark and I take turns taking him down and he LOVES it! I need to remember to bring my camera so I can take some pictures of him on it. On the way home, we stopped at our favorite local coffee shop for some bagels and coffee and then took Jonah to the playground park across the street from our apartment and let Jonah play some more. He took a great nap this afternoon!
Anyways, I decided to blog about Saturday mornings just because I love them so much. I love getting to go for a run as a family and I love just spending time with my family. Saturday mornings are so relaxing and refreshing. I am doing my best to enjoy every moment with Jonah as he is growing so quickly and always doing something new.
Here is a picture of Jonah and Mark in the park today. Its from my cell phone, so not the clearest picture, but it still turned out pretty well of the two of them.
