Most, dare I say all, moms and dads know the feeling when your little one starts running, bare-legged, as fast as their little legs can go – on pavement. You can just feel the fall coming. And you cringe, silently, hoping you’re wrong, and perhaps give a gentle reminder to “be careful.” Jen did just that while watching her twin girls race along with big brother. They did quite well for a while, and then, sure enough, one went down. She recovered remarkably well with few scrapes! Whew.
All three littles were thrilled to feed the ducks, offering as many crackers as their little hands could hold. Big brother was itching to climb to the highest rock, explore everything the park had to offer, and exercising his independence as much as possible. And the twins were anxious to follow suit! Our nature exploration ended with loads of fun at the playground where Matt was caught between being a pirate and helping with shoe duty. Thanks, guys, for sharing your afternoon with me!
