Eventually, Paxton decided he wanted to conquer the slide. The longer he sat there, the more terrified he got. I finally just slid him down really slowly, holding onto his hands the whole way (it was maybe three feet long). He hated it.
It took some swinging to recover:
Apparently climbing up slides is instinctual in kids because this happened:
And what kind of little boy would he be if he wasn't interested in bugs?
This park was probably a better fit for Paxton equipment-wise than the one by our house, but it isn't in walking distance. It will probably be our secondary park from now on. I love that he's at an age where he has fun at the park.
