One Cool Dude

Last night we took a summer drive to a new park to play tennis for the first time all year. Chris and I got to hit some balls and, of course, you know who our ball boy was!

At a stoplight we turned to see what Kestan was doing in the back seat and this is the site we saw. Eventually he added a hat to his costume - quite the performer!

The Roller Coaster Slide

Check out the new video of Kestan going down the slide, by himself, on our video link. He is so full of excitement, but halfway-down he gets that tummy-drop-sensation we all feel when you travel down the first steep hill of a roller coaster. His face of complete fear and joy mixed into one emotion is so super funny.

We enjoyed an absolutely brilliant day out at Shawnee Mission Park for Kestan's second bike ride. This time he stayed awake the whole way. When I was riding behind him I'd hear "mom, mom, mom." Then, when I'd ride along side him I could see his hand up against the mesh, looking out at me with the biggest smile I've ever seen. I will never forget that look on his face - the pure satisfaction of feeling the wind on your face and being out in nature with the ones you love most.

Here are some more pics from the playground that we stopped at along the journey. Our little independent boy had to show us how he can climb up and down on his own.

But he didn't mind an occasional helping hand from daddy.

Felting With Mommy

What a great activity to do together! Playing with soap and water with mommy is THE best!
