In our front yard, we have an impressive magnolia tree that is as ancient as our house. While Grandpa was here, he put up a swing for Mason. See the small red swing?
And we're already reaping the rewards!
G, Mason and I checked out a park close to our house called The Children's Park. It's a very serene park with no play equipment but instead has creeks to wade in and waterfalls to splash in. It's dedicated to children and babies that have passed away. As a mom, I got mixed feelings - sorrow for those parents who lost little ones and I was reminded of the huge blessing that Mason is to us. We'll go back but maybe when Mason is a little older and can enjoy it more.
