Nature Walk...

It has been cold and rainy this week but today was beautiful. We took advantage of the warm, sunny weather and went outside. There is a big open field in front of our house, so we walked through it and on the road around it. We were in heaven. The birds were singing, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I could have stayed out there all day.

I should submit this picture to Nike. He is learning to run and is getting fast! I love that this picture is all blurry except for his shoe. He was ecstatic to be outside. He was everywhere, checking out everything! I don't even know how many times he fell down....he was filthy when we went back inside...but SO happy.

absolutely DELIGHTFUL...

After realizing that Dandelions are the most disgusting tasting thing on earth, he quite enjoyed looking at them, smelling them, and coloring everthing with them. I love these pictures. I love it when Kaden will sit STILL on my lap.

Kaden is getting faster than Matt. It's really funny to watch Matt "chase" after him. Kaden gets excited, squeals and runs as fast a he can. Right now it is a game of cat and mouse, but soon Matt won't be able to get a hold of the little guy. Hopefully by then Kaden will know what "come here" means and he will be good for his daddy. The other day we were at the bank and I was busy with a transaction and Matt was in charge of Kaden. I turned around to see Matt walking as fast as he could chasing the little man saying, "Kaden, where are you? Daddy's gonna catch you". Kaden was laughing and racing into the cubicles and visiting everyone. It was quite funny, but I am sure people were wondering what was wrong with us and why we couldn't control our child.

He's so excited!

There has been a HUGE pile of pine needles, sticks, branches, etc collecting in the open field in front of our house. This winter made a mess of our neighborhood. Finally, today they burned it and there was a firetruck and ambulance there. Kaden thought that was great and inspected them quite closely.

He found himself a nice little walking stick. We were outside for over an hour and it was a challenge getting Kaden back in to take a nap. I am an outdoor-sy girl, so we make a good match. We will spend a lot of time exploring this summer.
