Last weekend, I spent three hours at the park with my nephews Kevin and Kaden. I was already exhausted from the day, but walking and spending quality time with them was so worth it. Biggest thing I learned: Little boys climb everything.
Photographic proof of the climbing:
Other activities included drawing with chalk. Here, Kevin drew himself, then his little brother Kaden, then Aunt Joanna, who is taller than either of them, but has a very short body thanks to the crack in the sidewalk getting in the way:
I was taking all these pictures, so they each wanted to get in on the action, and take a picture of their brother & me:
I'll give then holding-the-camera-straight lessons later- it's kinda big and heavy for little hands!
We ended the day with swinging and, as boys do, jumping-off-swings before dancing, literally, all the way home. Great, great day.
Disclaimer: The one with the I'm A Big Brother shirt on is actually the little brother. As far as I understand it, there are no immediate plans for him to be a big brother, but the shirt is a hand-me-down that happens to have a confusing message on it.
