Blue Ball Park

Okay, I know how that sounds.....this park does have an actual name, but this is what my kids call it. Blue Ball Park. And I imagine that there are a lot of kids who call this lovely park by this.....less than lovely name.

We spent much of Monday playing at the park, and taking a long walk along one of the trails nearby. Big Al had the day off, so we were able to spend the day together which was great. It was a little chilly, but we had a good time anyway. Now that it's raining again, I'm glad that we went while we had the chance. Besides, it was a great opportunity to test drive my new Ergo baby carrier. My little guy has outgrown the Bjorn.

He's SO tall. Way taller than N. was at almost 6 months. Now that he's eating actual food twice per day, he's just growing at what seems like lightening speed. Anyway, I LOVE the Ergo much more than I ever loved the Bjorn. I never liked slings...tried the mei thanks......but this is perfect. I wish I would have had it with the first two. It's really fantastic.

And here we have...the controversial picture. Admittedly, there was a time when I would have flown to the moon before letting anyone take a picture of me FROM THE BACK. However, I'm proud of the fact that I'm down 25 pounds since the first of the year. I have a long way to go, but 25 down is certainly a start. So anyway, here we are....just the 5 of us. N., R., Baby Jack, myself, and my big 'ol rear. Loud and proud, baby. Loud and proud.
