Climby McClimbsall

We had some mild weather before Christmas, so we decided to take advantage of it and play outside! Of course, we play outside when it's cold. It's usually a shorter trip! Miranda's favorite at this particular park is the four person see saw. If there are other little girls around, she tries to get them to see saw with her. If not, big brother will do.

Duncan seems to like it, too!

Duncan is a natural climber. It was so weird. He just started climbing all over the place when he was a little over a year or so. Evan only climbed at the playground. Duncan? He climbed everywhere. And everything. I remember being told by other people, "Wow, you've got a climber!" Like that was news to me! We had little nicknames for the kids that started with Evan. When he was screaming a lot, he was Screamy McScreamsall, Mayor of Screamy Town. If he was cranky, he was Cranky McCranksall, Mayor of Cranky Town. Duncan, obviously, was Climby McClimbsall, Mayor of Climby Town. He still gets up there with the best of them!

I don't know if Miranda was a born climber or if she wanted to be like big brother. Or possibly both. She has always tried to keep up with him, and she's finally got the skills to do it. But she's just as likely to hang out on the swings at the park. She likes the baby swings, even though she's a BIG 4 year old.

Duncan strikes a pose.

King of the Mountain!

And his little sis!

little monkeys! I know Justin climbed but probably not so much as they do. Now Aunt Natalie was a different story. Lala

I don't think I've been to this park. That mountain is fantastic!

It's actually kind of scary. At least, for me it is! It's a bit narrow at the top, so they have to be careful up there. And it's higher than I can reach. We can definitely go there the next time you come down! Very nice park!
