On Sunday Leo and I headed up to Battle Creek, Michigan, to hang out with Angela and Emitt. We intended to go to the zoo but due to a blonde moment by both Angela and I, got there at 9am to find out the zoo didn’t actually open til 11. Whoops. So we quick whipped out or cell phones, found a nearby park, and re-wrangled two eager-to-be-out-of-the-car toddlers back in to carseats. We found the park (after some awkward maneuvering around a really confusing subdivision) and unloaded. There was a whole bunch of slides, a beach with rocks, and water. Basically a little boy trifecta of awesomeness. Emitt and and Leo got slathered in sunscreen and quickly got down to business.
We picnicked together, gave the slide a few more runs, and then packed up for home. We missed the zoo but we hope to hit it another time this summer or fall. Leo and Emitt had a lot of fun running around together and sharing cars and trains and I loved seeing Angela and getting to catch up. Leo caught his nap on the way home, thoroughly worn out.
Seeing that little face sleeping in the rearview mirror gets me every.single.time. I could stare at him all day. He simultaneously looks so big and so like a baby at the same time.
