Earlier, Auntie Karen took Kendall out for some one-on-one time. They hit Barnes and Noble kid's area where she was very interested in other children (surprising since she is ALWAYS around someone). They also checked out a local splash pad and, though K was somewhat hesitant to get in the water, she did like all of the action going on and was happy for Auntie Karen to hold her and walk around the perimeter. They also got lunch to eat while at the park, so she had a busy early part of the day and I'm expecting her to sleep like a rock.
I will admit here that I am a terrible aunt and avoid outdoor games like the plague mostly because
They did pretty well and enjoyed the freedoms of wandering around. Clark and Kendall were not too interested in the game, but enjoyed the change of scenery and the chance to get out and MOVE. Emma was the one most interested in watching the whole event, but still managed to wander some as well. There were a few cheers when Tommy hit a ball or others on the team made it to a base, so I'm thinking they might grow to love the game. Lucky for me, huh???? **wink-wink**
And just to explain some things in pictures: 1.) Daddy bought a Kit Kat bar which he shared with the kids. Warm weather + toddlers + chocolate = a HUGE mess, but they loved it! 2.) All three managed to trip and fall and skin their right knee. It was sad, but sort of a rite of passage, don't you think? 3.) I'm also including some shots that Auntie Karen took while she was out with Kendall (see above).
