We have recently taken the boys to an elementary school playground that is on the island and have really enjoyed doing something fun that is close to home. The boys have REALLY enjoyed it. There is never anyone else at the playground so the boys are free to roam around and do as they please. On this trip we reaffirmed Drew's freakish strength by letting him hang from some playground equipment. We first discovered his ability to hang like a monkey at one of Isaac's developmental follow-up appointments using the physical therapy equipment when he was about 1 year old. He loves hanging and could probably stay like that all day. He never once let go - we would have to take him down! Once Drew impressed Mom and Dad, Evan and Isaac were quick to jump in.
Drew hanging and very pleased with himself.
Here is Drew hanging by himself on the low bar.
Isaac is an impressive climber...I mean it's scary at how coordinated he is getting up strange things. With all of his climbing, hanging didn't really interest him until his brothers were doing it - go figure!
Here is Evan looking unsure of himself with Isaac running in for a turn.
I think that it is funny how even in wide open spaces they just HAVE to test the gates!
