For the past few days we've been basking in milder temperatures under cheerful blue skies full of the promise of spring, so on Saturday after a busy day of chores my mom suggested we take the boys to the park for some much needed time out-of-doors. It was wonderful to get out and it brought back a flood of memories from almost exactly a year ago in Aberdeen when we had a day just like Saturday, cool and crisp but breathing the hope of warmer days ahead, and I had taken the boys to the train park around the corner from our house and snapped some pictures. Today I had to go back to that entry in the blog from April 1, 2008 and reminisce over the pictures and the sweet video of my then-not-even-walking-but-ever-cheerful Davis. How much has changed in just one year!
Addison seems to have finally lost all fear of playground equipment. I don't have to coax him down the slide any longer. He is eager to experience it.
Davis is fearless and needs no coaxing. You can't tell from this photo, but he is well above my head, which I'm sure Trey would never have permitted had he been there. Ever the protective Dad.
Addison wanted to try the monkey bars for the first time. He didn't get very far. Just hung from the one bar and then said, "I'm ready to get down now, Mom."
The boys really enjoyed this roller slide.
