Busy, Busy, Busy!

As always, we've been pretty busy lately.  Lots of playground time, playdates and various outings.  As a rule of thumb, we always hit up a playground before nap time or else the rest of the day is likely to be tainted with crabbiness and a general need to release some crazy.  

Here's a quick video of Little Man taking his own little butt down the slide :)

A little peekaboo at the playground...

We got him a tee-ball set and he LOVES it.  He drags the tee over to the door and starts whining (much like a puppy) when he wants to take it outside to play.  So far, he mostly hits the ball from above, rather than actually swinging the bat horizontally.  Thankfully, I think he has Jordan's hand-eye coordination, so I'm sure he'll improve with time :)
I told Jordan he should invest in a cup...I mean, we've all seen countless videos of kids whacking their dads in the crotch, right?  He should go ahead and protect himself now.

We spent Memorial Day morning at Kellogg Park in La Jolla.  I love it there, though we've only ever been on weekdays.  The moms are really friendly and the kids tend to be all around the same age.  It was crazy-busy, as expected, but we arrived early enough to secure a good spot on the grass near the playground and even got some stellar parking.  Ezra had an awesome time playing in the water and in the sand.

We also had a strange encounter with a kid, maybe 6 or 7 years old.  Ezra had his sand toys next to this kid and his toys.  The kid apparently didn't want Ezra to so much as touch his truck and asked us if we'd take Ez to play somewhere else...away from his toys...so that Ez wouldn't play with them.  The hell?  I mean, he asked, so we obliged...but were more than a little dumbfounded.  It's a crowded playground, kid.  Learn to share.
All was well in baby-land, as Ezra made friends with a very cute little girl that liked to share :)

Me and my E-Z Rider.

I love that he loves the beach :)
