every year our neighborhood has a little carnival in may called (ever so creatively) that day in may. i remember going when i was so little, walking in the parade in my ballet costume and eating way too much candy. it's still surreal taking my kids to do things that i did as a little one. we even popped in the high school for a minute and walking through those halls again gave me all the strange feels.
okay so there's probably far too many photos of william and me on the swings but this was such a monumental moment i couldn't stop myself from sharing so many! there's like a million more on my camera so i really did contain myself a bit ;)
william has always been so shy and timid. six months ago he never would have been brave enough to ride the kiddie train let alone the big swings. but sure enough, as soon as he saw them, he couldn't wait to get on and ride. he wasn't quite brave enough to go all by himself so he talked me in to going with him. i protested a little, but let's be honest, i loved it too! from the giant smile on my face you can tell i had a good time. but mostly i was just so stinking proud of my little man for being so brave!
my dad was working at the snack stand and handed us a funnel cake with the biggest dumping of powdered sugar on top for the kids. they LOVED it and luckily brad and i snagged a few bites so the kids didn't eat it all. ha!
despite the unseasonably cool weather (50 degrees and rainy in MAY?! come on, ohio!), we had a great time!
