A Walk in the Park

Today was a great day!  Jace didn’t want to take a nap today, so we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and have a mini-picnic at the park instead. 100_6355

Jace doesn’t like to wear shoes.  He tolerates socks, sometimes, but he has no patience for shoes.  Lately he’s been tearing up the bottoms of his feet (maybe at the pool?), so we’ve decided that shoes are required if he’s going to be playing outside.  We found these new “shoes” that work great – they’re half sock and half shoe!  The light blue part is sock material and the red part is rubber.  They are easy to put on and Jace didn’t seem to mind them toooooo much.  Best of all, they protect his feet!

The reason shoes were extra important today is because…. we brought the walker to the park!  The grass was a bit tall, so we got off to a slow start.  But once we got to the path, Jace took off.  He was loving it!  He would zoom along the path until he’d get caught on the grassy edge.  Then we’d turn around and he’d zoom off in the other direction.  I had a hard time getting in front of him to take the pictures but it was worth the effort – he looked so happy when he was walking along!

“Walking” in the Park – video

And THEN, to top off an already great day, I got birthday cake!  Cake is one of my favorite foods.  Jace picked the cake mix (neon blue) and Adam picked the frosting (neon pink).  It made for a very colorful and delicious dessert!

  1. Omg…what a yummy looking cake. I hope you saved a piece in the freezer for me. Jace at the park…totally adorable. I love that walker. It subs as an activity center, too, huh? He looks so cute walking behind it with the wind blowing his hair. Looks like a wonderful birthday!!!! Love you sooooooo much. Xoxoxo

  2. That cake is probably the most … um… “unique” cake I’ve ever seen, but it’s obvious you had a very happy birthday! I love the video of Jace pushing his walker. Zap forward 14 years from now and he’ll be doing the same thing with a lawn mower, if you’re lucky. 🙂

  3. Glad it was a great birthday! Other than the sleeplessness! If I could give you the gift if sleep- I would! In a heartbeat!
