Simple Fun

Yesterday we traveled to Santa Elena to have our vehicle serviced.   It is usually a day trip because it takes 1.5 hours to get there, at least two hours to wait, and then 1.5 hours to get home.  We try to do any necessary errands while there as well.  We planned the trip so Cruz would take his morning nap on the way there.  We arrived, dropped our car off, and then flagged down a tuk tuk to take us to lunch.  It was Cruz's second time to ride in one and he loves it.  I snapped the photo below right before we got out.  He was not smiling then, but believe me he grinned the whole ride there.

We ate lunch at Pizza Hut and let Cruz play on the playland while we waited for our order.  It was not enough that he had climbed to the top, as you can see from this photo, he then wanted to climb even higher.  He is like a monkey when it comes to climbing.  He climbs everything!!!

After eating we walked around the strip mall to kill time.  We found a playground that we have never visited before.  The things they had to play on were a little big for Cruz, but he had fun anyway.  I am sure we will be back to play there again.  Here he is jumping on the trampoline.  It said for kids ages 4-8 but there were no other kids around so we let him play. 

He is obsessed with "horsey's" these days (horses).  He straddles and tries to ride everything like it is a horse.  Here he is riding the see saw.

more climbing

He liked playing in this fort.  He kept trying to lock the gate.  I guess he wanted to keep the bad guys out.

He always enjoys a slide.  I am just thankful he went down feet first this time, haha.

We bought a few grocery items and then took a tuk tuk back to get our car.  Here he is playing in the tires while David payed the bill.  He had a fun time playing, running, climbing, and exploring.  He took a good nap on the ride home and that was worth it all.  I love turning trips like getting your car serviced into fun family days.
