Park date with Ma

After being away from Ma for so long, the children needed some time with Ma (my mom).  So we packed a picnic and went to the park.  Matthew wanted to ride his scooter (they all received scooters from us for their birthdays).  Morgan and Ethan opted to walk.  He was just learning here, but you should see him now!  He is quite the speed demon!  (Makes me nervous!)

We visited the rose garden:

Played at the well — very dried up, of course!

Ethan is “fishing.”

Then we ate — always the best part of any outing!  There was a fig tree nearby so mom went to pick some.  Ethan LOVES  figs.

Thank goodness there were plenty on the tree to pick!  We had eaten at least 2 plates of these sweet, delicious things!  (We’ll have to visit the Robinson’s back yard soon!  We also discovered that Leo and Matt have a white fig tree in their new house.  If you have not heard yet, they moved out of the house across from us and moved a few blocks down from where we live.  Thank goodness not too far!  When we ask where Matt and Leo went, Ethan responds in a very sad tone, “uh bye bye.”)
