Labor Day 2009

A quick update on our long weekend ... with lots of photos!

Last week, Jasper decided it was time to really start walking. He is doing fantastic and has really improved over the last week. He walks all over the place ... fast. He is one busy boy - weighing a whopping 22lbs.

Our friend's little boy celebrated his 4th birthday this weekend. And we went to the park to help celebrate. Our children love the park and honestly I wish I could take them everyday. I enjoyed this more though since so many of our friends were there as well.

And this photo below brings up another point I would like to mention. I have some serious problems with Petra interfering with other moms and getting too close. She has no idea what personal space is. At the book store she is not the least bit interested in what I'm trying to read to her, but will go sit in any other mother's lap. In the bathroom for months I have had issues with her peaking or crawling under the stalls to see the other ladies. And here is one more example. She has never met this lady in her life, but she wants her to pick her up. Luckily this time it was a friend of a friend.

Jasper on the other hand does not like strangers. Here he is being helped up to a standing position by a friend.

The only other thing we did much of this weekend was reading and shopping. A local store had a consignment sale this weekend - where we picked up these balls!

And today we went for a quick hike - just 1.5 miles. Jasper was not happy for the second half of the trek. He hollered and hollered.

I attempted to teach Petra today how to use the camera. Here is a photo she took of Jasper and myself.

And in case you are wondering, this is why you shouldn't leave two young children alone... hee hee. The good news is he also thought it was fun.
