Today Eli and I got to explore a new park! We had so much fun trying out all the new toys...swings, slides, steps, ropes, the drinking fountain! We also met several fun fuzzy friends and Eli impressed one dog owner by snuggling up to a 5 month old boxer type puppy while he was continuously licked. She said, "wow, you don't usually see kids letting a dog climb all over them and lick them to death!" I assured her we have two tail wagging, sloppy kissers of our own at home, but they don't sit still long enough to let him love them.
Among other things, Eli is obsessed with doing everything that is too old for him (will that ever stop?) so of course he had to try crossing a rope bridge, a tire trail and climb up the tower. He was not so successful but he had a lot of fun trying. I'm sure we'll be back to that park many more times to perfect his skills. In the end we took a leisurely swing ride before heading home (via the scrapbook store of course). Here are few more pictures of our morning adventures.

Not any better
Do you know how stinkin' hard it is to take swing pictures?!
Success! (I only cheated a little bit!)
