Park Pictures

I love our neighborhood. We have 2 parks and a school within walking distance. I have been taking Simon to our park to play since he was just a tiny guy. Now it's Ryan's turn to join in the fun.

Having a swingin' good time.

This is Ryan and his new friend Kate (Danielle Long's daughter. Isn't she cute?)

Ryan is already 6 months old and he is soooooo much fun. He just discovered that he can reach any toy he wants to (or paper, remote control, whatever) by rolling! Simon's toys aren't safe anymore. He also just learned how to play peek-a-boo. He kept pulling his pj's up over his face when I was getting him ready for bed. I finally realized he was playing peek-a-boo, so I started saying BOO when he would take the pj's off of his face and he would giggle like crazy.

He still seems so small to be so smart!


Last week we went to one of our favorite places. The Riparian Water Ranch. We go there often because it is right by our library. The weather was perfect so we went hiking on the trails. Simon DID NOT want his picture taken but I managed to sneak a few good pictures anyways.

This is one of those pictures worth a thousand words. It sums up Simon's morning. Don't worry, he brightened up.

Simon is content with his big box of Cheez-Its. Ryan loves being outside. He was smiling the whole time!

This is what got Simon out of his grumpy mood. He loved these birds. I think they are a type of crane. They have really long legs that bend backwards at their knees. They look like birds on stilts. Simon wanted to go into the water and catch one to take home!

After hiking through the wildlife preserve Simon wanted to go play.

My favorite pic of the day.

Rolling down the big hill. (He did this about 10 times! That is one way to wear out a 2 year old.)

King of the mountain!

And sitting on the big concrete rattlesnake.

I am taking every chance to enjoy this beautiful spring weather. The Riparian Water Ranch is one of my favorite places. We might just have to go back again soon.

So fun. That place is so great for kids. We used to go there too. Ryan is looking so big and just like Simon. I saw that you tagged me and I promis I'll get to it soon. There's just a lot going on that I've been and will post about. Thanks for tagging me; it's my first one.

Looks like fun! Ryan has changed so much in the last two months. He is such a cutie pie and Simon is Mr. personality plus!

Thanks for asking. Never take it serious enough and just keep doing it on the side.
J and B are right. Such cute kids. Hope you guys are doing well.
