feeding ducks at liberty park


april and james came up today and the four of us went to liberty park. we're so lucky to live by such a great park! the playground is huge-although nash was still too scared to try any of the fun stuff (except riding down the slide on mom's lap, which was not fun for me!). instead, he found a random bunny statue with the ears broken off and decided to give it kisses. what can i say, the boy loves animals. he also had a lengthy conversation on the phone while pacing through the grass (my dad is a huge pacer while talking on the phone).

after the playground we strolled over to the duck pond and fed the "ducks". finally, a little fearless streak came out in the boy! he LOVED it and fed them straight from his hand (even i'm nervous about doing that).



it was fun for nash to have a friend. he and james are only a month apart and are like peas in a pod. they are just about the same size with slightly large heads and are in about the same place with vocab and gestures. it was so cute to see them together-even though they are both in a sort of "loner" phase and didn't exactly play together. they took notes from eachother and i bet if we keep up with playdates they will be great friends.

What cute little friends. I love that he kissed a statue but wouldn't go down the slide. He is so funny!
