More Firsts

While we look forward to and celebrate all of Ryan's firsts, each one is also bittersweet. I know that Ryan is the last addition to our little family so each first is also a last. It doesn't make sense that it would make me sad because I am completely happy with our family of four, but still... he's so sweet.

Last night we had another last... Ryan tried vegetables! Sweet potatoes to be specific. I'm not sure if he really liked them or not. He opened his mouth wide for each bite, but made a terrible face once it was in his mouth... it was a sucking on a lemon face! It must have been shocking to have something so tasty after living on milk and rice cereal for almost six months!

Here he is ready for his next bite...

Mmmm... yummy!
So happy! Full and clean! What could be better??

This morning we prepared the boys for another 80 degree day. Here's Ryan ready for school.

Tonight we took advantage of a beautiful evening with a walk to the park and then some time in our own yard. I think Tyler is finally enjoying the swing set! It only took two years!
Here's Tyler learning to pump.

Such fun!
Ryan got in on the action as well. Another first... or is it a last? He loved it!
Whoops! I got a little too close!

And then it was time for the tire swing! ... check out the siding on the garage. Dan did it himself! I think it looks a lot nicer.

Yay! Two boys on the swing set!

Here we are back inside after all our fun.

Two minutes later, Ryan was all done. Poor kid... it's going to be a long summer for him being dragged all over the neighborhood.

I love summer! It's hard to believe we're going to be back in the 40's tomorrow:(
