We love The Great Park here in Irvine. Aside from the carousel that you can ride as many times as you want for free, they have these beautiful open grass fields that the boys love to run around in. Next time we have family in town we need to do a picnic here. There are no parking lots close, and no where for the boys to get into trouble- the perfect place. Tonight we reminisced about some of our past visits, one in particular will always stick out – that time we biked to the park and I crashed into a planter and broke my arm. Struggs Hb, struggs!
Lots of pictures of Jude tonight – he’s been on our minds a lot. My favorite part of taking the boys to the park is watching the glances between Finn and Jude. I love watching them look back with anticipation for the other.
Finn sees us always wearing our sunglasses so he’s been putting his on a lot. I’m proud of myself that I’m getting better using my manual settings – I was always overwhelmed about using it because I felt I wouldn’t be able to change settings quick enough. But I’m getting faster and that feels good. I was able to go from a lot of sun to dark and find the sweet spot on my first try. It made me feel good.
You ready for the random part of this post? haha! Mom and Dad aren’t nearly as well documented as our beloved children – but I still try and get us in front of a camera when we can, I know you want to see how we’re doing too. Thanks for the iphone shot Toppy!
Sure do love my baby Royal James
