Where Was This?

I don’t remember what this place is called. I’ll ask Allan and fix this post when he tells me.

We drove up to be out in nature, to look at the river and walk around in the mountains. But then the kids spotted a playground, a pretty cool playground, and the rest of the evening was spent there. We decided to go home once the mosquitoes came out. Man I hate mosquitoes!  photo 003eresized_zps271d3f0e.jpg photo 030eresized_zps07da06d0.jpg photo 031e2resized_zps80eb5382.jpg photo 058eresized_zps6e32ce09.jpg

Allan was helping the kids down the path.  photo 069eresized_zpse66e19c3.jpg

At the park there were four kids calling, “Push me, daddy! Higher!” over and over and over again. And Allan did, over and over and over again.
He decided to be the photographer for the swings pictures and my gosh did he nail it!  photo 085eresized_zpsbdbf1e41.jpg photo 086eresized_zpse28ba8ce.jpg photo 089eresized_zpsefbccd69.jpg photo 092eresized_zps7b81fbc4.jpg photo 094eresized_zps2b92d98c.jpg

I stared at the ground for a good minute or two watching for any signs of bugs. Mainly ants. There were none as far as I could see so I laid out Everett’s blanket and he kicked happily on the ground. He LOVES being outdoors!  photo 106eresized_zps7fae14d5.jpg

Then Allan took the camera again. It’s awesome that he’s so talented at photography!! It was seriously nice having all these moments captured and not having to be the one to capture them!  photo 113eresized_zps125c5082.jpg photo 115eresized_zpsc4a5b6fe.jpg photo 117e2resized_zpse1b6e16c.jpg

I love that he took a few zoomed out to show the whole scene 🙂  photo 118eresized_zps7a3055c6.jpg

And these to show that I was hanging out with Everett while everyone was swinging.  photo 121eresized_zps00eabbfe.jpg photo 122eresized_zps99ea0ee3.jpg photo 123eresized_zps629bebea.jpg

I took a couple of Allan pushing Payson and then Allan took the others.  photo 132eresized_zps35838468.jpg photo 135eresized_zpsc57284ce.jpg photo 136eresized_zps6b6a45b9.jpg photo 139eresized_zps81dc0560.jpg

I love that we traded the camera back and forth. haha
Allan took the majority of the pictures, though!
I snapped this of Everett breastfeeding. Everett probably won’t want to see it when he’s older but I like it!  photo 146eresized_zps6d220643.jpg

Allan took all the rest of these pictures!  photo 147eresized_zps26708abf.jpg photo 149eresized_zps36b9e936.jpg photo 150eresized_zpsc4363bc8.jpg photo 153eresized_zps693e9ea8.jpg

I like these he got of Sierra and Payson on the slide. Cool angle!  photo 154eresized_zps536e5cd6.jpg

Brooke spotted this tree and ran over to climb it. It wasn’t long before everyone followed her because it was a pretty cool tree!  photo 155eeresized_zpscdeefcf0.jpg

The kids were all begging Allan to take pictures of them! It was funny to see them almost fighting over who got to be photographed. My kids begging for photos and me getting to just sit back and watch someone else take them. And well? Niiiice.  photo 157eresized_zpsf1efe179.jpg photo 160eresized_zpse19e6a8d.jpg photo 161eresized_zps33917f85.jpg photo 162eresized_zpsfe4924f9.jpg photo 163eresized_zpsf8a45d3f.jpg photo 164eresized_zpsf9f5b43f.jpg photo 165eresized_zps1d7b7887.jpg

I thought it’d be fun to get a photo of Everett in the tree. On his blanket of course. He didn’t seem to care one way or the other about where he was.  photo 171eresized_zps389ae688.jpg photo 172eresized_zps9ccf7b77.jpg photo 173eresized_zpse974b568.jpg

We went back to the playground for a little while but the mosquitoes came out pretty darn shortly after we climbed the tree and we left. Fun times, though!
