It NEVER Gets Old......

Emma and Sophie LOVE, LOVE visiting our little neighborhood park. Especially when it's not crowded and they have the entire place to themselves. It has been a wicked cold winter here by Kansas standards, so these random spring like days are very welcomed! I have seen a BIG change in Sophie as far as playing on the equipment. She is still timid. But, this last trip she did not cry one single time. (Okay, she was close a few times....). She asked to go on the swing and she even seemed to like it! :) Last year she SCREAMED if we tried to put her in the swing. Sophie is more confident in herself and she is developing her own personality instead of always mimicking her adored big sister. I was pleased to observe Emma being affectionate with her stuffed panda who came along for the outing. She hugged him, comforted him when he apparently fell, & she helped him navigate the equipment. (Too bad she does not pay her sister the same courtesy...ha ha). I enjoy seeing this affectionate side of Emma emerging, she is such a sweet girl. :) Enjoy the pictures!!!

Hey do you guys live in avalon? that park looks like the same one we go too! ;) I am sure that parks look the same, but that one shot of Emma walking on the curb looks like the same one we go to which is by the pool.

It sure is fun to see the kids explore and become more confident! Your girls are wonderful!
