We tried to go bowling on Saturday but had some troubles finding the Bowling Alley and ended up at East Rock park. We walked by the river, played on a turtle, swung on the swings and explored a little-Quinn found a rock and an acorn he was pretty focused on. Turtle Climbing
Papa helping Quinn walk on the turtle. Such a cute picture of them
Checking out the park
I love his studious face! Here he is thinking about the acorn
Lovin' the swings. I had such a hard time getting a picture with him looking up, he thought leaning over the seat and staring at the ground was more fun. He's right, remember doing that as a kid? And you would see the ground rush by and feel a little dizzy? :-)
The Tale of the Backpack.
So Quinn is really into imitating us right now. He loves to help clean, he wants to be the one who uses the keys to unlock things, he handed Peter a belt the other morning wanting when he saw Peter putting on another belt and wanted to help. He then wanted to wear the belt just like Daddy.
The other morning Quinn walks into our closet and sees an empty backpack sitting on top of the washer. He started pointing and grunting at the backpack and so I gave it to him. He immediately put it on and headed for the front door. I opened the door and he headed out down the hall.
(Sorry the picture is so blurry, this kid moves fast)
He made his way over to the elevator
He tried really hard to push the elevator button
(Sorry that light is so bright)
I'm guessing he wanted to head off to school just like Daddy does every morning.
