Ok, so our kids absolute favorite place in the world is the park. He loves to go to the park now..Of course what intelligent young energetic toddler wouldn't love the park? I don't know that I like the park as much because every time he climbs on something I feel like I am going to have a nervous break down worrying about if he will fall and get hurt, but as Keith reminds me that is part of growing up. I think he may have went down the slide 20x in 5 minutes (with the help of mom & dad). It's always fun though as long as we are all smiling.
This past visit to the zoo was awesome! Asher loves the sea lions and monkeys (aka: min mins). It's like you could literally see his mind absorbing all of these new things around him. It's a lot of fun to see your own child learning and excited about the things they see. I especially love the picture Keith shot of him holding Asher's hand and walking. It's not a portrait photo or anything, it's just the angle/idea of him walking holding on to daddy's hand.
Asher had a great time playing with Katerina and Daniel. It is so nice to have them over not only for Asher but for me (Hannah) as well. I can't believe how much they have grown. Katerina was younger then Asher is now when I started watching her, WOW!! It was fun to see our little guy interact with older kids. He had so much fun coloring with Katerina & Daniel, and even more fun eating the top off the green marker. Lucky for us he didn't actually swallow the tip he just chewed it off :-)
We had a great time for my birthday. Keith took us on a boat ride out on Lake Michigan so we could see the city. We didn't get far because about 1/2 hour in one heck of a storm came our way. Nonetheless, Asher loved the water & boat. He sang the whole time which is a sure sign he is one happy kid. It made for a perfect present for me just to see my little guy so content.
