A Day at the Park

Bradley and I have swim lessons each week at the local swimming hole. Afterwards, we enjoy a picnic lunch and play in the park before walking home. It's one of the highlights of my week!

I mean, when you get to see smiles like this, how could it not be?
He loves to crawl around the synthetic grass, then pull up on the different play structures:
The rope is particularly fun (and wobbly!):
 Even though we have a tons of fun, he's very obedient when it's time to go home:
Nap time? Don't mind if I do!
After an afternoon of swimming and playing... Bradley's ready to take a snooze... and so is Mama!

Morning Coffee

Just enjoying a nice moment with my Minnie Mouse coffee mug, while Bradley plays quietly.
Wait. What??

"Hey mom!"
"This thing is awesome!"
"No time for photo, though... too much to explore!"
Hm. There you have it.

New Dinner Digs

This was happening more and more lately...
What's not pictured? The tray where all the blueberries were sitting before he took it off...
Oh. And he can wiggle his way out of the bumbo, too. So that's not an option anymore...

But this new high chair is!
Bradley loves his new dinner digs!
But he's not so impressed with Mama's shutterbug tendencies:
Just chilling with some blueberries:
Sniff! My little guy is growing up!

Bradley first trip to the neighborhood swimming hole wasn't well documented, but I did get a few photos of my water baby:

Ready to take a dip!
Happy baby heading home.

I'm sure we'll be spending lots of time there this summer, so I'll try to get some shots of Bradley actually enjoying the pool.

The Dragon Pool

With summer rapidly approaching here, Chris and I decided we needed something for Bradley to enjoy in our backyard.

So we bought an ultra-classy blow-up pool with a dragon that spouts water.
He loves it!

Wait a minute. Is that a shark in the water!?
Nope! Just Bradley's (ADORABLE) swimsuit!

I see many hot summer afternoons being spent in Dragon Pool!

Rainy Days

A few weeks ago we had one of those Houston downpours. But Bradley and I had a lunch date!

So... we dressed for the weather!

Bradley's two bottom teeth had just come in, so he was ALWAYS walking (scooting?) around with his tongue out. How rude!

And off he goes!

Time to splash in some puddles!
