Slowing Down For A Change

Yesterday was one of those days that i slowed down alittle in life and just went at my childrens speed. If you have never done this you should try it sometime. You'll find that your day will be much more relaxing and fun!

We went to 3 different parks! Everytime i asked Caiden what he wanted to do he said "go to the park" we started at the rec center, then to a little one down by where we used to live and ended up by coming home cooking food and taking it to last park to have a picinic. Once we were fininshed eating the ice cream truck came by and we all got ice cream. I haven't seen ice cream trucks since i was little. The kids had so much fun and were exhausted by the time bedtime came around (and filthy not just dirty...filthy!!!)

Caiden has become my little monkey, he can climb up anything and isn't afraid of anything!

Here's Hailey still holding onto her popcicle stick, i think she thought if she sucked on it hard enough more would come out of it. She has just started standing herself up on her own.

We played in the dirt at one of the ball parks, they had a blast (what kid doesn't love dirt) and i have to admit i was sitting down there playing in it with them. Me and Caiden were playing imaginary baseball, somehow he kept getting homeruns and i kept striking out. I think he was cheating:-)

Don't they look adorable even covered with dirt?!! Okay i have to leave you with this...

*Mom, I swear i wasn't eating the dirt!!!*
