Splash Park

Greg and I took Brayden to the splash park yesterday afternoon. He wasn't too sure of it when we first got there. He was holding onto Greg for dear life! But after running through the waterfalls with daddy for a few minutes, he eventually warmed up to it. He enjoyed walking around in the water and splashing himself. Greg even made some new friends while we were there....he was splashing water on Brayden, and a little girl saw this and started splashing water on Greg. Her younger sister and brother soon followed! I thought it was pretty funny. Brayden had a big time in the water and did NOT want to leave. We'll definitely have to take him back soon.

Busy boy

Brayden is acting more and more like a toddler everyday. He is constantly on the go it seems, and is exploring everything he sees. Here are some things he has been up to; he likes to splash around in Callie's water bowl and I've caught him rubbing the water in his hair a few times the past few days; Brayden really loves to give Callie treats...he has figured out where we keep them and he constantly gets them for her. Greg finally had to move them to a higher place to keep him out; He got a hold of a bottle of hand lotion on Sunday and managed to unscrew up the top...within 30 seconds there was lotion all over the room! Needless to say, he is keeping us pretty busy these days.

Here are a few pictures from the past few weeks of Brayden in action. The video at the bottom is of him "helping" me sweep the other morning. He had been doing it for several minutes, but he pretty much stopped when we started recording.

Greg has been hard at work this past week building a playset for Brayden. I must say, I am pretty impressed because he did it all by himself! Brayden did try to "help" a little though. Greg finished the main part today and put the slide together, which Brayden was very eager to test out....over and over again. The only thing left is to add the monkey bar and swings. I'm sure we'll get plenty of use out of this playset in the days and years ahead.
