Not too long ago we took a walk as a family of three at this park. It was our last weekend as a family of three and it was wonderful. This weekend we broke out our summer clothes for the first time and went to the same park as a family of four. If possible, it was more wonderful.
James was as happy as a clam throwing little tree blossoms into the duck pond and this little girl finally took a binky (first time for everything!) after a huge scream-fest in the car ride over.
Soon James grew tired of the little blossoms and wanted to throw big rocks that make a big splash. He also wanted to stand on the railing. He was quite insistent.
Soon we were on the hunt for more big rocks and took a stroll around the forest (as James calls it). Luckily the forest was great for discovering lots of rocks. James thought it was such a treat to hunt the woods for the biggest ones.
He wore his little backpack about half the time (carrying his own water bottle) and he looked so darling. Can't wait for hiking season to take off.
This little girl loved the bumpy road and fell right asleep. She has gained so much weight lately, she is not tiny like she once was. Oh no, she has a full face and huge cheeks, just like her brother. She's my chunky monkey. ;)
Throwing the big rocks into the pond again did not disappoint. One splash was so big it hit James's arm. He hasn't stopped talking about it since.
