The Swingset is up

We finally got a Swingset for the kids from Wal-mart. I always felt bad when they would go out and play in our backyard because there was nothing for them to play with. Carter would actually play with the wire fence that blocks off the garden and Bailey would play back by the hose. Carter loved swinging on the swing and Bailey loved going down the slide. I think that they would have stayed out longer if it was not getting so dark and they were not so tired. I am not sure that I am going to be able to keep them in the house now that they have a swingset right in our backyard.

Carter's Birthday Party

We finally celebrated Carter's birthday on Sunday even though his birthday was a couple of days ahead. It was so cute to watch him open presents. He actually knew what to do. He loved the toys and had no interest for the clothes. It was actually funny when he saw the clothes he had the expression like, "What is this?"

A lost boy at the Zoo

I was at the Zoo on Thursday with a couple of families from my stake. Bailey really seemed to like looking at the animals while Carter just wanted to wander and had no particular interest in the animals. I let them play on the Giraffe slide at the Zoo and had turned my head for a couple seconds and looked back and he was gone. I did not get too panicked at first because I did not think he could get that far, but after a couple of minutes of not being able to find him, I started thinking of all the different possiblites of what could happen to a toddler at the Zoo. I immediately went up and let the personnel know that I had lost my little boy and they started searching for him and after ten minutes of not being able to find him they called the cops and then announced over the PA his description so we could have everyone looking for him. It felt like forever before they found him even though it was only 30 minutes. He had gone into one of their sheds and closed it and none of the workers at the Zoo thought to look there. I actually had a lady that was not working there bring him up to me. I really felt like my prayers and those praying on my behalf had been answered. I am so grateful that my little boy was okay and was able to celebrate his second birthday the following day.
