Fun at the park

There is a beautiful park not too far from our house that we have been to several times now, and we fall in love with it a little more each time we go. The playgrounds (one for tots and one for bigger kids) are very well kept. There is a quiet and gorgeous 1 mile trail through the forest of trees. It also includes a nature trail, which, as soon as Brooklyn is old enough, we will venture. There is a little pond with paddle boats, turtles and even alligators. And, to top it all off, there is a small sprinkler area for the kids to cool off in their swimsuits (which is Brooklyn's favorite part). The whole park is well shaded by huge trees and natural growth, except for some fields of golf course type grassy knolls. It is an ideal park and we love it.
Here are some pictures from our last park date:

Brooklyn really does like swinging; the first thing she does as soon as we get there is run to the swings. She doesn't laugh and giggle like the little baby boy was next to her. She just sits back and lets the wind rush through her... uh... scalp.

Of course, Mommy can still make her laugh no matter where she is or what she is doing.

Look at the background... that is what surrounds the playgrounds. Isn't it just beautiful??
Now, it's on to the sprinklers.
This girl loves, loves, loves the water... especially fountains and sprinklers.

Like I said... LOVES water.
... maybe a little too much.

Every time we go to the park, or anywhere for that matter, Brooklyn makes at least one new friend. She really is a social butterfly. Sometimes she'll just walk right up to someone and wave hello right in their face.

And this is the face we get when it is time to go and why we come back again and again.

It is so nice having parks like that close by. Such a fun treat for everyone. Brooklyn is just too cute sticking her face in the water. It looks like you all had a ton of fun. Wish we could of been there.
Love ya

Brooklyn is such a sweet baby! I see more and more of Matt in her when i see the pictures. You're a great mom and I'm glad you're having so much fun together!
