Barnes Park was the destination that Cole and I chose to have a picnic.
We brought Dundee along too to enjoy the sunshine and remind him that he is still afraid of ducks.
(Still wishing that with every oncoming car, Dundee would picture it to be a giant duck; that way he'd run AWAY instead of TOWARD...)
We had such a good time together. After eating, Grandma and Aunt Brookie met us up for a walk. Cole fell fast asleep in the stroller.
Enjoying his first carrot
Last week we made the most of Shane's day off and went for a hike. Cole fell asleep in the front pack about fifteen minutes into the hike...sweet boy.
Came across this beautiful thing... (actually I almost stepped on the poor thing...don't ask me how I didn't notice 3.5 feet of snake on the ground)
I was wishing Cole had been awake to see the snake, because I wanted to see his reaction to him. I have always thought snakes were some of the most fascinating creatures.
After we came home, Cole went down for a nice nap.
Shane and I made the most of our time making pork salads and eating them on the porch out back.
We were also able to go see cousin Bryce's track meet! He is one AMAZING RUNNER (4:53 mile I believe). We met up with Cory, Holly, Grandma, Aunt Brookie, Savanna, Easton, and Eric.
(Don't mind the woman in the orange pants...)
Once again, being in the great outdoors (and in his Grandma's arms) wore the little man out! He fell asleep, but each time the runners came around the track, a wave of cheers came right along with them, waking him up for a few seconds. Then he'd be back off to sleep for another minute or two before they came around again.
Looks like we have found the secret to get baby Cole to sleep...
I'm considering transforming his room into a rain forest.
