sitting at the park

**We are safe. Thank you to those who left a comment or sent an email to check on us after the tornadoes. It was definitely crazy weather here in Kansas. We are so thankful for the Lord’s protection and are praying for those who are dealing with the aftermath of the many tornadoes this weekend.
Before grocery shopping one day last week, we took a little trip to the park.
Going to the park is a big treat for Levi. We don’t go into town very often just to go the park.
 Don’t feel bad for Levi. Instead of playing at the park he is usually busy driving tractors with his daddy or riding his four wheeler through the fields. You know, normal kid things.
But when we do make it to the park, Levi thinks it is pretty great. He was running and climbing everywhere.
 And Griffin was just chillin’ in his car seat watching his crazy brother run circles around him.
But that didn’t last long. Griffin got tired of being trapped in his seat, so I plopped him down on the ground and he was a happy little boy.
 This was one of the first times he had sat up by himself for a long time without toppling over.
He was smiling and talking away. I think he likes the park too.
Before I know it he is going to be chasing his brother around the park. They both will be running circles around me. I hope he stays immobile for just a little while longer. I’m okay with just sitting at the park.
 Have a good week!
  • Lacie and Stephen - What is your definition of mobile? My just turned 5 month-old has discovered how to roll everywhere to get what he wants and to get where he needs to go. Lol!
