Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun....

The weather has been so nice this weekend and we were expecting it to be in the 70's today. Antonio and I decided we should take Tatum to feed the ducks, so we gathered up our old bread and headed to the park near our house. When we got there, we could only find a few ducks...

....but that was fine. Antonio had to remind Tatum that we couldn't get too close to the water or else we might fall in....


sometimes, she would try to get closer, but he would rope her back in...
Here he his telling Tatum..."You stand RIGHT HERE!!"
I guess the geese saw us feeding the ducks, so they decided to come get some food too...
The geese were very agressive towards the ducks, but they were fine for us.



we decided to try to get the ducks or geese out of the water so that Tatum didn't feel like she needed to stand so close to the water....
we tried to tell her not to point at the geese cause they may want to bite her finger....
MORE geese came and ran off some of the first geese that were there...they were VERY territorial...
AND THEN IT HAPPENED......
...........................................................................................................
..................................................................
That's right....Tatum FELL IN THE WATER!!!! She was trying to throw the bread really far and threw herself in too! Antonio grabbed her right away and she was fine. I couldn't help but giggle a little because we had told her so many times to NOT stand so close to the water or she would fall in. (I know I am horrible for laughing) and Antonio got mad at me for taking pics of it, but I managed to get a few before he made me stop taking them...


Antonio stripped her down and I had a sweatshirt jacket in my car that we wrapped her up in and we put her in the car to head home...
Here is Tatum and Antonio getting out of the car at our house....As you can see, Antonio's foot went in the water too.
Here are Tatum's clothes DRIPPING wet!
Tatum was okay and we all had a great laugh. Tatum said she went swimming with the ducks and she had fun! We decided to not let this little excitement ruin the day, so Antonio and Tatum changed clothes and we headed to the park.

Now I know that Antonio's shoe got wet, but that is no excuse to wear THESE out...
Antonio has at least 4 pair of tennis shoes, flip flops, etc. However, he thinks THESE UGLY HOUSE SHOES are okay to wear out. He wears them to run errands all the time. I tell him that they are embarrassing, but he doesn't seem to mind, so I am sure he won't mind me posting a picture of them either....love you honey!!!
We had the whole playground to ourselves. Tatum had a blast!
Antonio was helping Tatum do the 'balance beam'....wonder if she will be into gymnastics one day...



I know Tatum is getting so big, but where is my baby girl!?!?!? She used to need our help getting up these ladders and whatnot, but not anymore....

This is about as still as she would get so I could take her picture. She was walking towards me....

Tatum LOVED exploring....



Taking time out to talk to Daddy and tell him to climb up and play with her....
so he did of course....

We had a wonder family day at the park and playground. I promise Mateo and I were there too. I had him in a carrier and I was taking all of the pics of course. I didn't realize that we didn't make it into a single picture until I uploaded the pics.
After all the playing, we went and ate lunch. THEN we went home so Tatum could take a nap. Now we are waiting for Tatum to wake up so we can all go for a walk and take Maggie too.
We love this warm weather and no plans! It allows for us to slow down and enjoy the little things in life!

I SO laughed out loud when I saw the pic of Wet Tatum!! That is so funny!! We went to the park today too and I was thinking the very same thing about how big Addyson has gotten. It made me happy and sad all at the same time!!

I laughed outloud at the builup to Tatum falling in the water while feeding ducks. I am positive that Caroline will do that one day in the not too distant future....she just is very much the daring child.
