What Dreams Are Made Of

Mornings like these are what dreams are made of...

October dew, two excited little ones, the park, a bag of balls and a fully charged camera battery...

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the pigtail! 

One hour and 159 pictures later, we captured some sweet memories...

Enjoy.



If I had to describe each of my two in one word as it pertains to their 
park-going I would choose:

Focused for Kaki
and
Sweaty for Caden


Kaki is still a bit uneasy around steps... 


She considers her moves carefully, and almost never falls. Her big brother was never as cautious and fell ALL THE TIME! Still does. His feet move way faster than his brain, same goes for his mouth!


Kaki gets SO excited when we pull up to the park! Think teenage girl seeing Justin Bieber excited! It's hilarious! She loves the adventure...


Focus...


She loves the new challenges...


And loves it most of all when she has a SWEATY brother running around to watch, catch and play with...



A bag of balls and a big basketball court and Caden is happy for hours...

Unlucky for Kaki, there is a large hill separating the the park from the court, which makes lil miss a bit nervous... but head down, focused determination takes her to the bottom every time...


She's a natural born hiker... always turning to the side to make her moves down the hill...


I think we may have been at the park mere seconds before the sweat started to drip down Caden's face... he LOVES to run!


Kaki is a fan of the bag-o-balls too...




She is an expert at playing fetch with herself...


And she's ready for t-ball...



And tennis too...


But before long we are back up at the park...


Such a hard worker, she is!




Meanwhile back at the court, Caden is attempting to launch his gold football through the basketball hoop! He manages to do it several times... 


And Kaki thinks that all of his excitement might be worth checking out...


So down we go...



She decides to do a few ball tricks of her own...


But, you guessed it... it wasn't much longer before we were back to the park...


And then to the swings... after nearly 45 minutes of running around, up and down, they both needed a bit of a break... 




A serious set of swingers...


Then, Caden decided he wanted to do a little park time... MY GOSH... the sweat!!


Which inspired Kaki to reach new heights...


And traverse down a new path...


And all of this park exploration left Caden with a sopping wet pair of shorts!


That morning dew left the slides a bit slippery...


But when did soggy britches ever stop anyone?


Not today... I can assure you of that...


Since he was... She thought...


Stop, smile, snap...



After not getting too far climbing up the swirly slide, Kaki decided to head to the part that was just her size...



And I think she had just about enough of my camera in her face! :)


Before we left we decided to head down to the pond for a bit of an adventure... who knows, there could be sharks? fish? snakes? OH MY!

Kaki took off in a jog... she's getting really "fast!" 


I took this sweet opportunity for a little staging... asking Caden to help Kaki down the hill... is there anything sweeter than a brother and sister hand in hand?!




No, I don't think there is either!

Happy Hump Day!
