Amanda didn't agree and proceeded to climb up the bars. I helped her when she got to higher rungs and she fell through the bottom rungs a couple of times. The bumped chin didn't deter her and time after time she climbed to the top again.
At the top, she wanted me to help her slip down through the bars so she could hang by her arms and swing and kick her legs.
She would hang there happily until her arms got tired and then she dropped to the ground a few inches belong her feet.
We've heading out to the park on many afternoons when the boys are done with school, Amanda has awoken from her nap and the neighbor boys are home from school. We like to pack the van full of as many friends from the neighborhood as possible. It's a great time of day to get out of the house and enjoy the warm weather. It makes those long afternoon hours go quickly and enjoyably. Plus, it keeps the boys from tearing up the lawn playing "Seven Steps" around our house!
