At the Park.

I'm not always good at noticing my surroundings, because I'm always looking at the way the wind blows through your curls or the way your eyes light up when you smile. My favorite places are the places that are filled with you. 

You love the park. A brave soul who scales up the ladders and slides down the slides, you are growing up before my eyes. Wasn't it only last month you wanted me to slide with you?

Feeding the ducks is always an adventure. Even when the ducks aren't there and we feed the turtles instead. And even when you prefer to eat the stale bread, rather than throw it in the pond. 

Every day with you is the best day.

This was a very fun but hot day at the park. Hudson played hard at the playground and then he set off on patrol to pond to feed some ducks, fish, and turtles and to cool off in the shade.

You worded that so perfectly Swoop. It is amazing how I keep my eyes on Hudson at all times. I don't want to miss any of his little moves or and new discovery. He is truly a blessing and a amazing little guy!

LOVE YOU!!!

Laura Elizabeth said...

That park is beautiful. At least with photos, even though in real life you were busy looking at Hudson, in the photos you can look back and see the other amazing things that were there :)

Cara-Mia said...

What a beautiful post. It makes me a bit sad to think about how quickly children grow up, though. I'm sure it feels even faster to you.

Whitney said...

Hudson in his little car made me laugh out loud!
