An Evening At The Park

I realized that I hadn't taken enough pictures lately, so off to the park we went camera in tow. It was such a beautiful night out and the park was very quiet. This park is a new one that is on the edge of town (notice the barn and corn fields in the background). It is one of the parks in walking distance though which is nice. I took a picture from across the pond because I know how big Zan likes to get a visual. :) (Click on photo to enlarge.)













Everyone tried out the swing. There was a big monkey that kept getting into the pictures.

























































Ella took on the climbing wall and she does a very good job.





















Then Zan climbed to the top and took a picture of us at the bottom.


















Before we left for the park Sam was sitting in his exersaucer. He was really relaxed and just kicking back. We thought he looked like Papa, so we needed to get a picture of it. I had the hardest time getting a picture of him not smiling. Every time he would hear the beep of the camera he would smile. He's such a ham!! So I have one of him smiling and one with no smile.

All the pictures were great, we really liked each one of them (thanks for the big picture of the park, Vicki even liked it). We enjoyed the looks on the faces of Ella and Sammy when they were looking at their dad hanging from the swinging bar. That was also neat of Ella on the climbing wall (she also likes to explore things). The one that Zan took from above is great (you need to frame that one and the one of Zan with the kids because they are unique). We also enjoyed the pics of Sam kicking back (Vicki and I both chuckled when we knew the story). We logged on late last nite when we were in bed, it was a nice way to end the day.

I love the pictures. I agree with Grandpa and Grandma...the looks on Sammy and Ella's face, looking at their dad, is so cute!! I can't believe that Ella can climb that wall. She is pretty high too. What a little monkey. Sammy's smile is intoxicating. He is such a doll. I like his smiley picture better than the sober one. But with Sam and Ella there's never a picture I don't love.
The picture looking down at you guys is pretty cool too.
Hugs and kisses to all.

I forgot to add in the first comment that was that Ryan and Ella on the bench with Romeo close by in the park picture?

Nope, those were other people that got there when we were leaving.
