In the field with friends

So, it's a 2 for 1 Monday. Enjoy it, because this probably won't ever happen again! On Friday, Chloe turned 11 months old and in recognition of that moment I brought the "big camera" (you know the one that shoots in 15 mega pixels and should have it's own insurance policy attached to it) to the park.

Now, going to the park isn't really an "event" that is noteworthy because we go nearly every day. But, somehow my sanity is directly linked to weather or not we go to the park and that is noteworthy! In fact, I would wager that it is just as beneficial to me as it is to the kids. Yes, they need the fresh air and to get the wiggles out, but I too, need the fresh air, and the mommy gab which is basically the bread and water that is keeping me alive. It just might be my most enjoyable 45 minutes of the day!

On this particular Friday, we headed out to the softball fields with the babies, balls, and dollies and gabbed as the kids ran around.

Chloe says "just one more puff please, mommy."

Abby discovered that her tongue can wag
around outside of her mouth
Becky with her troublemakers (her words, not mine)

Love this picture, and the lighting! If only we could
see all of Madie's head instead of Strawberry Shortcake's...

Love Sawyer's little grin

"man child"

Miss Abby watching the big girls run around
(she is sitting like a big girl)

Ahh, there she is! CUTE!

Camdyn refers to any field as "the ballgame" So, yes, we were
playing at the ballgame.

I love her puffy cheeks. We now call them her
"puffy puffies" and we kiss them endlessly!
