Just another day at the beach..

Well, we are here! We finally got to go on our beach trip! We are at the end of day 2 and like we suspected, this trip is completely different than any other beach trip we have been on! Parker has been a real trooper! He is so excited to be here! I think he has made friends with everyone on the beach and is not scared of the waves or the sand at all. In fact, he loves it! He loves running right into the surf and laughs hysterically! Robert and I have been taking turns chasing him up and down the beach. But with all of this excitement comes the lack of wanting to sleep which can make him a bit crankey at dinner time but we are taking it in stride... It's exhausting but we are so fortunate to have such a sweet and energetic little boy! More to come later....

Sunday at Cherokee Park

Today we spent the afternoon at Cherokee Park which is in a beautiful neighborhood called Sequoyah Hills that nestled along the Tennessee river here in ol' K-ville. Parker loves it there. He loves to watch the boats cruise by and runners with their animals. He even took interest in a heated waffle ball game that was going on near us. Did I mention he loves to eat sticks? We have been having such beautiful weather, how can you sit inside? But we did have a great afternoon, Parker enjoyed it so much he took a 2 1/2 hour nap this afternoon! We just have to get through this week and then we are off to Gulf Shores, AL for our rescheduled beach trip. Let's just say a quick prayer for good weather!

Parker's new toy

Parker's birthday gift from mommy and daddy finally arrived via UPS this past week. It looks like a little clubhouse with a slide. We have it inside right now but once it gets cooler, we will most likely put it on the patio. So Parker spent the weekend getting acclimated with it. He loves climbing up the slide and and scooting down the back - totally backwards but he loves it! Smokey loves it too, she thinks it is her private house when Parker isn't around. Those two have the funniest relationship, she is really on with him or wants nothing to do with him. I'm hoping she will come around the older he gets but for the meantime it is what it is! There is also a gas shortage in K-ville so we wont be going anywhere unless it's necessary. I paid $5 per gallon this morning. Hopefully we will see some relief soon! Well, have a good week everyone - we will be in touch!
