Our Trip to the Park
It was a beautiful day yesterday and I decided to take the Fab Five to the park. I always loved playing in the woods when I was a young girl, so I thought my kids would love it as well.
I should have given some thought to the fact that little Jake, despite being quite mischievous, has many irrational fears. His latest one is a fear of bumblebees. Most children are afraid of them, but Jake freaks out if we open the windows because he is just SURE the bees can come in the house. I have shown him the screens and explained how bees cannot get through them, but he remains unconvinced. Any small bug is a potential bee to him, so being in the woods brought new terror not to be believed.
Jake's expression sums up his feelings about the woods
Jordan and Zoey had a wonderful time
Jordan very sweetly held Kate's hand for most of the hike
He held SaraGrace's for awhile, too
My little 'ducklings' watch a pair of geese with their ducklings
Jake forgot his fears long enough to throw some sticks into the stream
Later in the day, we took some photos in front of our snowball tree that is currently in full bloom. I was disappointed in the results this year. They turned out over-exposed and too blue. *Sigh*
