Morgan loves to follow Kevin around. Anytime he is out in the garage she loves to run and get on her little rain boots and check out what he is working on. Yesterday was no exception. She sat down next to him to get a closer look and I thought I should take a few pictures to remember this moment. She is getting so much older everyday it seems and soon this will feel like a million years ago.
She is going to grow up knowing WAY more about cars than I do and that's OK because that is something she will have to share with her dad. :)
One thing I miss about California is how close the parks are. I had two in walking distance! Now it is a little bit of a drive. Nothing major, but I can't just get the stroller out and make a walk out of it. I know I have a lot of pictures of Morgan playing at the park over the last two years, but it is such a fun place to try and get some good shots. Here is what I got the other day.
Last Saturday we decided to head back to Centennial park and explore a little more. They have a nice playground so we let Morgan play around on that for a little while.
After she played a for little bit we decided to walk over and check out an old train that they parked there.
(side note* Morgan is now moving on from the "pirate face", but we are now seeing her stick out her tongue A LOT. I don't know which is better :)
After the train (and Morgan's 20th exclamation that it was "Hot!") we decided it was time to pack up and go get some lunch. I do think we will be coming back to see even MORE of Centennial park. We didn't even get to the botanical gardens at all.
I found Another toddler activity on Pinterest I decided to try out. I went to the dollar store and bought a pack of rubber dinosaurs and then gathered up some little figures and bouncy balls we had around the house, then I put them in a big a bucket of water and froze them.
Later I took this block of ice outside, gave Morgan a hammer and told her to swing away!
She seemed to have fun, except she complained that the hammer was too long. I think if she had a shorter one she would have gone a little more nuts.
Here she is with all of her findings. I chose the little dinosaurs because it would be something new for her to play with and it felt like digging for fossils to me.
Last weekend my parents came to stay with us for a couple of days. While they were here we decided it was a great opportunity to go check out some of the things Nashville has to offer that we hadn't seen yet. So, we decided to go to Centennial Park. In the center of the Park there is a replica of the Parthenon with an art museum on the inside. That is where we focused of attention this time.
The best part about my parents visit (for me) was the Morgan wasn't shy around them. She finally recognized them and grabbed my mom's hand and asked her to come play with her in her room. And my dad won her over my chasing her and tickling her. It was really fun to see them bond.
