Fun at the park

For a small town we are very fortunate to have great parks and spring break seemed like the perfect opportunity to take advantage of them. The antique carousel at Fireman's Park was open all week and since the kids are a little older and love horses I thought they might enjoy it. Every other kid runs to the horses in excitement but not our kids, they screamed and cried pretty much the whole time! Once we left the carousel everyone was fine so I guess we will try again next year. The playground on the other hand was a hit and our kids are fearless. We had a great time and enjoyed spending the morning with Laurie, Amy, Mary, Rosie, Shawna and Brady. After the park we all headed to CiCi's for a pizza buffet and then home in time for a nap. We must have really worn them out because that was the best nap they took in a really long time!!!
Addison and Mary before the horses started to move.
Collin stayed on the horse for a while with Daddy by his side but you can tell he wasn't excited about it.
So Daddy held him until the ride ended
As you can see Bryce never made it on a horse and Addison quickly ended up on my lap.
Addison, Mommy, Laurie and Bryce
This slide was a little fast for Addison and she would get this scared look on her face as she came down, but that didn't stop her! She would turn around and go right back to the top to do it again.

This was our first attempt at a group picture of the kids, it didn't go so well!
Brady, Collin, Addison, Amy, Mary, & Bryce
Our second attempt wasn't much better but you can at least see everyones face. I love how Mary is trying to gather all of the younger kids!
And I had to include this picture. If I tell Addison to hold Bryce's hand she will grab him and not let go. Sometimes he will let go or he gets away from her and she throws a fit! I'm really trying to work on the holding hands thing because its safer for them to stay together especially when I can only hold two hands. I also think it is cute when they walk together holding hands!
