1st Park Visit

This past Sunday, March 14, the weather was just absolutely too beautiful to spend inside. We don't get many beautiful, non-humid days often, so David leaned over during church and whispered that we should take Hayden to the park. I readily agreed. I'm just now taking time to put the pictures on the computer and I wanted to put some from his first visit to the Little Children's Park in downtown Ocean Springs.

Hayden loved the bouncy bridge, and he seemed okay with the slide. Forget the swing, however! As long as it was sitting still, he was fine. Once we pushed it, he was no longer cool! This really surprised us. We didn't stay too long, as there is only so much you can do with a 10 mo. old who's just learning to really walk.

On our way out, we stopped to take a few pictures on the wooden bridge that leads from the parking lot to the playground. Once Hayden decided to start licking every rail, we decided it was definitely time to go. Please don't think I'm a bad mother; we did try to stop him, but he thought it was a game! I'm very much looking forward to more park visits later this spring and summer, when it's hopefully not too unbearably hot!

I can't believe how big he's getting! He's so stinkin' cute! I love those cheeks!

So cute! If all he puts in his mouth is a park rail, then you are LUCKY! He's just building up immunities ;)

I was one of those mothers who said, "My child will never eat my car keys!" (That was ONE of the few things I declared.) Yeah, so, in the grocery story it's the perfect distraction! My child must have great immunities because he tests everything! Every now and then even the cat toys! Yuck. So far we've avoided the pet food, though, thank goodness!
