We have several difference gymnastic facilities around us that offer open gym time for younger kids. During our heat wave (which left for a few days and now is back, yay!) the girls and I were sick of being stuck inside the house, so we decided to spend our day out of the house and keeping busy. I was a bit nervous taking them by myself to the open gym, the previous times we have gone, Josh has been off work and we have gone together. Oh, that and the crazy moms who bring their young children and don't pay any attention to them. Before we left the house I told the girls a few simple rules they need to follow. Stay close to each other. Listen to my words. Have fun. No fits when it is time to leave. I repeated these rules again in the car and while walking into the building. They did fantastic! Towards the end of the visit, Claire started to wander a bit, but the gym was starting to clear out and I could still see her, so no worries.
After gymnastics we had to run a few errands and then headed for Wendy's for lunch. We had a fantastic girls morning and they were not ready to go home yet.
