Officially a Toddler

I would Say that Saturday, Anna officially became a toddler.  It happened on the way to the park.  Anna decided she didn't need to hold onto fingers as she has need to in the past

When we got to the park she wanted to go straight onto the big swings!

When she was on them she wanted to pump her legs like the other kids, but we wouldn't let her

Even though she likes the big swings she still enjoys the baby swings sometimes too, although in this clip she is "finished"

She also has an amazing ability to hang. She can beat both Drew and I. She is really strong, don't worry, when she drops, she isn't even upset. She is tough!

Our Anniversary

Our anniversary was a fabulous day!  We started off the day with a huge breakfast (made by Drew).


Then we went as a family to Anna's baby signing class and then to buy Anna some new shoes for our later outing.


Anna decided to help out by pushing her stroller as we walked through town


Then we headed home so Anna could take a nap before we headed out again.  After her nap, we went to Brimham Rocks, we had not been there since last year when Anna was just a couple of months old.


Anna has become more adventurous since that time, she did some climbing while were there.







Daddy also did some climbing while we were there.


We also enjoyed a picnic while we were at Brimham rocks.  After Brimham rocks, we came home and visited the park.  Then we went off back into town for a stroll through Valley Gardens.  Then we went to Betty's Tea Room for a light dinner.



Finally, we went home, Anna went to bed and Drew and I celebrated the rest of our Anniversary with some sparkling juice, and a love letter Kim wrote for Drew.
