Yesterday Elias and I did not have much on our schedule and it was reasonably good weather so I decided to walk to Autumn Ridge Park which is not too far from our home. I thought it was time that Elias try out the swings for the first time. He can sit up on his own now, and his neck is very strong so I thought he’d be able to handle the swing just fine. I never realized how large those baby swings are compared to the size of the baby. I guess they have to fit for toddlers too. Elias had a lot of fun swinging. He also enjoyed watching the bigger kids who didn’t have school yesterday and were playing tag in the field. I can’t believe Elias will probably be one of them in just a few years.
After the swings, we walked around the park and Elias got to feel tree bark and grass for the first time. He also had a moth land on his arm which scared me, but I’m not sure that he even noticed.
After an hour or so, the sky started turning dark so I decided to start heading home. The walk took about 15 or 20 minutes and I didn’t have any rain gear! Luckily I left when I did because shortly before I got home it started hailing! So much for the nice weather. Oh well….it’s good we took advantage of the sun while it was around.
