  So we have been spending a lot of time at City Lake Park. Caden really loves the train. I don't think he is too fond of the Carousel but Christian really wanted to ride it. I tried to get a picture of the 2 of them together, but I think this is the best I could get. :) Christian doesn't like to "say chesse" any more. I can barely get a
 smile out of him.

We have also been spending 
more time outside in the yard and picking the Wild Blackberries. But now we have a Mockingbird who isn't too happy with
 me. He keeps spending alot of tim
e on our playscape and porch just watching me, I know it. He even swooped at me (lifted the back of my shirt!) while I was picking some berries! I don't know what do do about it. Thankfully he has not bothered the kids. So I guess we will leave him alone for now.

We also have been attending our church picnics  once a month this summer. Our last one was all about "water" so they had a big inflatable  water slide. I didn't think Christian wo
uld go but he sure has become very independent. Especially when there are older kids. All they did was cheer him on and he went right down. Of course after one cheer you can't stop. He wouldn't go down unless the kids cheered, "1-2-3 GO!" EVERY TIME! And they didn't ever time or they didn't think they would get a turn since Christian wouldn't move.
