My New Job

I have a new job (part time) and I will tell you what, it really is one of the greatest jobs. I watch a little boy (friends from church), Tristan, during the mornings. We head over to their house and Ada is so excited, every time, when we pull up. She seriously loves going over there. She starts to get impatient on the drive over. This particular morning on the way to work, I was so curious what she was doing, so while at a stop light (It was red, of course) I turned the camera on her and captured this adorable face (No, not mine...I had no idea I was even in the picture). We are on a pretty good schedule. They have a morning snack and right after, both kiddos start getting really clingy, almost whiny until I say, "You ready to go on a walk?" That stops all whining right away. Ada comes over to me to get her shoes on and both head over the the gate while I gather up waters, keys and such. They are happy campers once they are loaded up and out the door. I found a HUGE park a little ways down the street. It is beautiful, but I must admit, I was taken by a little surprise when I saw Warning signs about alligators. You better believe I stay on the path and don't spend anytime near the water.
Here is Tristan. He is such a good boy and loves his outings!
Ada loves roaming the playground. She can't get enough of it.

I had to get a shot of just one side of the park. Isn't it beautiful?
Of course, the kids were not interested in smiling for me.

On the way back from the park this particular day, I noticed a bunch of birds nearby. They must have thought that we had food because all of the sudden, they all started walking towards us. A tiny bit creepy if you ask me, but the kids loved it. Ada was crying to get out of the stroller, but no way.

The other side of the lake. I love the lily pads

So, there you have it, my new job. I wouldn't really call it a job, but I am not sure what else to call it. It is so fun to see both kids interacting and learning to socialize with each other.

Well I can tell you one thing about that first picture: she has the Lovell teeth! Your dad, grandpa L. & most of his brothers & sisters have that same set of teeth. they slant inside towards the mouth instead of straight down. that's how my roommates could tell your dad's siblings when they went swimming at Park Ro She in Springville. She's got that Lovell smile. Very Cute post!!!

Sounds like a great job to have--congrats on the new arrangement, I'm glad it's working so well for you and Ada. And how nice that you still have good enough weather to take the kids outside everyday for playtime. Have fun!

That's funny about the alligators. Have you seen many since you've been in FLA?

I am sooo jealous of your weather right now. My kids are never happier than when they're outside and it's getting to the point that it's too cold to go out anymore. Sad.

I also love having lots of kids around. Kids Ada's age (and even Zoe's!) in my experience love other kids and are so happy to just be near them. Fun for you guys.

What a great arrangement! I really think that it's great for kids to socialize and be around other kids. Love that big grin, too!
