is that adorable or what?!!at first he didn't really like it but he got used to it. i mean, he was acting like he couldn't walk. seriously james? the vest just throws off your balance?? it was pretty funny to watch. i could tell he wasn't uncomfortable. i don't really know why the vest would constrict his stride but he eventually adapted and moved on.
since fall is is full swing mr. h and i decided to take james to the park again last night. i know that once daylight savings time hits and the weather turns colder, the park will only be a memory until next year. well, we may take him on the weekend but i'm talking about for an evening adventure. we decided to try a park we haven't been to before. i hoped they had swings. i still want to take pictures of a swinging baby! we got there and discovered it was a park made for big kids or kids older than james. and didn't have swings. great!
james just looked at it for a while. not sure where to go or what to do. but once he ventured towards the playground, we realized one thing. james cannot walk on sand. this sand was thick and he would trip and then get it all over himself. i'm not going to lie, he didn't like it but neither did i. i mean, i didn't want to get sand in my tennis shoes. sand and flip flops is one thing. sand in my fall jacket and tennis shoes is another. overall, it was pretty close to a death trap for my 1 year old. we had to watch him like a hawk. james seemed to enjoy himself regardless.
we played and played
even though this picture clearly shows that james gives this park a "thumbs up" rating, i doubt we'll bring him back before next summer.
