A Day in the Park

This weekend we went to Montevallo to visit family. We still hadn't met Leslie's baby girl, Ellie. And us girls had a full day of shopping planned for Saturday at Christmas Village. But on Friday afternoon we took 3 rambunctious kids and one sleepy newborn to the park to play. It was the most beautiful day at the park. And this park in Montevallo was the prettiest park ever! A rolling green field, a creek with wood bridge and a col play area with 3 side by side slides. Those kids had the best time!
I got this picture after Hayden said "I just love the view from up here."

A local man comes and carves into the trees around the park.

These side-by-side slides were awesome. No taking turns, and everybody got to race!
Immediately following this picture Leslie yelled, "Oh, I forgot to catch Emily!" So funny. Luckily no one was hurt.

Isn't this the most beautiful baby! People pay good money for lips like these!
This was so much fun to watch. Hayden and Dave throwing around the football and Maggie chasing Hayden. I took some video and as soon as I stopped taping Hayden said, "Phew, that was a good play." That kid cracks me up.

This one was after Emily woke up from her nap. That is the BEST bedhead I have ever seen!

Saturday while us girls were at Christmas Village Dave took Hayden to the McWane Science Center to see the train exhibit. They couldn't leave without buying a souvenir.
I seriously love this baby girl! Sweet Mary Elaine (Ellie).
