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.
