I was trying to get a picture with the brothers AND Naomi, but they were too wiggly (go figure) and she was falling over, so I just tried to get one of the brothers. I have many "attempts," but this is the best of the bunch! They are all wearing their new Toy Story 3 gear that Grandma bought them.
Later the same day, we went to a new park in Puyallup. It was a really nice, shady play area with some trails to walk on as well. Upon arriving, Josiah kept climbing around saying, "This is awesome," over and over. Another boy about his age came to play also and Josiah introduced himself and also his brothers and told him, "They're twins...they don't look alike, but they're still twins." I guess that is his way of describing the word "fraternal" and hey, it works!
As always, our Caleb is doing the risky types of moves on the play area. Mommy's heart beats a little faster when he is climbing on things for sure. Caleb was having great fun mimicking everyone around him. Josiah heard a helicopter and both Caleb and Daniel were running around yelling at the top of their lungs, "Hel-cop-er," and were wildly flailing there arms as if it would land on them any second. A GREAT place to wear out those outside voices, I say!
Daniel was attempting to climb the rock wall here and was telling me about it. When we were on the walk, Daniel wanted to push Naomi's stroller and he and Caleb had a little tussle about who was to be the stroller driver at one point as well. Daniel definitely isn't quite as adventuresome as his brothers, but he also doesn't like to be left behind either! On one part of the trail, there was a steep incline to climb with lots of dirt and rocks and Josiah started up to see how far he could go. Caleb jumped right in and tried too and Daddy had to rescue Caleb at one point and then he taught Josiah how to slide down the hill to get down. Daniel took two steps towards the hill and said, "I did it!" Ummm, not really sweet Daniel, but you were sure cute!
