Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

To the Park............
We took Tristen for a drive. It was a cooler day than it has been so we figured we would just have a look around and see what we could see, He was a little grumpy at first but soon got into the swing of things. I want to try to make every day of his life a special day. I know that's impossible but well he will certainly get out and about. First we just drove in the direction of Maple City. We decided we would go through back roads and see what we could see. We stopped at the park out there for a break. First of all we must check the swings for rain water and bird poop........he was right on that. Lets climb next Little boys must get out that energy. He was running from one thing to the next. Not quite as much fun as when Reina is along but he did OK. Down the slide and on to other things. Tristen loves to throw balls and things, he loves to play ball. If none are available then a rock will do. SO throwing a stone over the net was fun for him Well he is still "potty training" and so we have to remind him to let us know when he has to pee. SO...........Gerry showed him what little boys get to do when out walking in the woods. Or when its necessary to go outside. He loved this. first find a good spot Then get ready......Gerry of course is just talking not actually showing him. We left the park and drove around a bit on the way to Cedar. We saw these two ladies out catching bugs. We stopped in Cedar at Pleva's market for some Polish cherry pecan Brats......they are awesome I walked over to the ice cream shop and Good boys get a cone with wonderful rainbow sprinkles on it. Now does he look like he is enjoying that or what? He was one sticky little critter by the time we got home. But he had a great day out and so did we.................notce he is wearing different clothes. Well Gerry was showing him how to wash off his feet at the park, but Tristen is not good at following instructions and he turned on the old fashioned water pump and it got him right in the middle. We had taken an extra set of clothes with us, its always a good idea.
