What is it about jumping off of big rocks as a kid? (And why, as adults, do we stop looking for those fun little joys?) Almost any kid I know will seek out, climb atop, survey the drop, and then, if said drop looks safe enough, will jump to the ground with a giant smile. This little guy was no different. Having never been to this particular park before, we all felt like true explorers and even referred to a map a few times. We checked out the now-withered garden area, walked along narrow paths, and found the small river. And he tested out his parents’ arms – they may be nearing the end of the time when they are able to swing him while holding their hands.
Lara and James, I’m so glad the weather held out for our session in the park! I can’t believe how big he is getting. May he always land safely when jumping from the big rocks!
