I realize I'm a few weeks behind schedule on this...but we took off to Blowing Rock over Labor Day weekend with the boys and had a super fun day at the park and strolling the streets. It could possibly be the first time I have ever visited without hitting up Kilwin's for some ice cream! But I was satisfied with a few minutes of rest on a blanket:) Tyrone was satisfied with a trip to the candy barrel at Mast General...rock candy anyone? Tyrone spotted this awesome climbing tree & we had to take a picture. I mean, seriously, how fun does this look??
My little man in his track suit on the parkway on a chilly morning.
Tyrone climbed the "rock wall" several times...he's very proud of that fact because he couldn't make it over without help the last time he was there.
BoDiddly loved the swings... but loved watching big brother Tyrone more. He watched him and giggled like no tomorrow the entire time he was swinging. So cute I could pinch his fat legs!
BoDiddly loved sitting to watch all the people. And true to himself, he made fast friends with every "old" person that passed us by! Fun family times guys!! Loved it.
Our little champ has moved up in the world. And by moving I mean everywhere. He has discovered that rolling is just not quick enough. After one week back to daycare---drumroll, please--he is crawling and pulling up on everything he can see. And needless to say, he has his mommy's temper when he is not allowed to go where he pleases! Ahhh the payback for mommy:) As I type, he has crawled into the laundry room and emptied the whites out of the laundry basket and strung every last one of them (dirty, nonetheless) as far as he can reach....and he looks at me and giggles. Very pleased with himself. Big Brother thinks it is all fun and games now, but little brother has yet to discover the goodies in his room! haha
So imagine a hot summer day with an 8 yr old begging you to go swimming...and an 8mo old that is a lot of trouble to pack up to head for the big pool. Bam! The baby pool suddenly becomes a cool cabana for three. Tyrone, BoDiddly & I all squeezed into the pool under the shade of the umbrella. We killed a few hours with some water play and Tyrone practiced his world famous "balancing a cup of water on your head while you walk" trick for his brother. Don't tell me a big pool is more fun. I have Tyrone convinced they are a waste of water....teehee.
