Swinging Monkey

Filed under: Videos — Tags: , , — Luke @ 11:51 pm

One of the favorite things for the kids to do is go to the playground in the neighborhood. Its a simple one, with swings, a slide and a couple of other things. Mara has been getting more and more bold with the jungle gym. Once she wouldn’t go past the first rung, and now she has made it all the way to the top on the last couple trips to play there.

This video was taken in December. You will see that she likes spending time on the jungle gym so much she is willing to go without seeing Mr. Sprinkles, her best buddy, as well as just live on the apparatus for a few weeks. Needless to say, that did not happen, and she came down with her latest unique dismount.

Fun At The Playground

Filed under: Pictures — Tags: , — Luke @ 9:01 pm

Grandma came to town last Friday to do a little babysitting as Lisa had to leave early for the day. Any time that she can get with the kids she tries to take advantage of. At the end of the day Mom and Grandma took the kids to the playground for a little fun outside. Dad arrived at the playground to meet them directly from work, so it was all of us there together.

Mom has been taking a digital photography class, and got a new camera for her birthday. Needless to say there has been a lot of practicing going on and Friday was no exception. There are fifty pictures that I have uploaded, and I even eliminated a few before doing so. Here are just a few of them below. If you want to see the rest then click on one of the pictures to get to the album.
