This is the park that we have walked to ever since Aaron Jr was born. These swings have brought lots of laughter and lots of great photos. He loves to swing.
Every time we pass by this park, Aaron Jr points and says 'horse' because of what he is riding in this photo.
It is crazy, Aaron Jr. is growing up so fast. This day at the park, I went down the slide with him the first time and then the next time, I climbed up there with him and before I had a chance to put him on my lap and slide down with him, he jumped onto his bum and headed down the slide alone. It scared me to death and I instinctively caught him and pulled him back up to slide down with me. But after realizing that he might be able to go alone, I let him climb up the stairs and go down all by himself. The rest was history. I couldn't be in two places at once, so I climbed up behind him for part of his climbs and was at the bottom to catch him for the rest. I was so nervous letting him climb up alone because about 6 months ago, he was climbing up by himself while I watched and a couple of steps from the top, he fell to the ground. Needless to say, I have been paranoid ever since. Two minutes later, he was trying to climb up them again, but I just couldn't let him. Anyhow, this time, he did just fine and was pretty sure of himself. Enjoy the photos.
This one was taken on a different day (today) at a different park, but I liked this photo, so I had to throw it in. He is clenching his granola bar given to him by my neighbor and friend, Liz.
