A day at the Park

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

I know I probably sound like a wimp but I have been hesitant to take all 3 peanuts to the park by myself. You might remember that we lost Will and Harry at a big park right after Kate Emerson came home. That was the WORST feeling. Will and Harry want to explore the woods and climb trees. Kate wants to swing and crawl on the toddler gym. I have trouble keeping everyone in view. Anyway, we went to a small local park and everyone had fun and no one got lost! A good day.

An update on Jeff....He had a rough day yesterday and the doctors still have not made a definitive diagnosis. He is still in the hospital and needs prayers. Today is their daughter, Ruby Mei's 1st birthday! Happy Birthday Ruby Mei!


  1. Cute pictures! Cute outfit Kate is wearing too! We have the same problem with family outings due to the age difference between Ben and the boys-9 years. The boys will be 6 years older than Olivia so we will have the same problem again!


  2. Looks like a great day for everyone, and it's always good when we bring home the same number we left with! :)
    I don't think you're crazy at all!! I always like when Daddy is along for that reason, it's hard to keep an eye on everyone!
    I love jungle boy Will in the trees, Kate in her helmut, and Harry's big smile!!

  3. I'm glad you didn't lose any of your children. I don't think you sound like a wimp at all - 3 kids and one mom. You're outnumbered.

    Harry & Will are such great boys. Please thank them for being so awesome and letting their mom have an hour and a half on the phone. I think they're great (and awfully cute too).

    I love Kate's little outfits! She's always so well dressed and she really couldn't be any cuter.

    By the way...you should expect some mail in 2-3 days. I'm sure you'll let me know when it arrives. :)


  4. What a fun day, I love the photos.

  5. Great pics as always. Seriously, was she the best dressed kid at the park?? poor Annslee goes in shorts and a tank top LOL

    Glad you all had fun..

  6. Oh ~ don't be so hard on yourself, I do remember that and how scary it was! Remember what you said to me when I beat myself up over LiLi falling a few weeks ago. Looks and sounds like the trip to the park was a success :D Kate is adorable, but you know how much I love her. I have to tell you that the pic of Harry stole my heart! He has the sweetest smile and the way he was sitting with his arm under his knee, that is how Ian ALWAYS sits and I just loved it :D

  7. Sweet pictures! I don't think you're a wimp. I am afraid to just take Lindy to the park and can't imagine what it will be like when I am responsible for two. Good for you for conquering your fear. I am glad it worked out well.

  8. Love the pictures. Definitely a fun day for everyone!

    I continue to pray for Jeff. I know it sounds weird but he needs a "dr. house" to figure out what is going on.

  9. Kimber,
    I just love the way that you dress Kate. It looks like you all had a great time at the park.
    I will start praying for your friend. I'm sorry that I didn't see that post sooner.

  10. It's always a good day when you don't lose a kid!!! Congratulations on that feat!!
    Kate's little outfit is too cute!
    Love the pics.
    Keep us updated on Jeff, I hope today goes much better for him.

  11. Wonderful pictures. I LOVE Kate's outfit. That is GREAT!

    I think it is Will in the picture up in the tree. That is an awesome picture!

    Did everyone have fun on the bike ride?

    I hope Jeff has a better day today.

  12. What a fun day. It is hard to keep track of three kids ANYWHERE!, especially when they all want to do something different. Kate looks so cute in that adorable outfit. Your boys are so handsome. I have a tree climber too, give hime a tree anytime, anywhere, and he'll climb it!

  13. The weather looks wonderful for tree climbing and biking. Everything is so green!

  14. Great pictures...glad you survived! You know that I can TOTALLY relate!

    OK.....now......where do you get Kate's clothes? Email me privately if you'd like!

  15. Hey, any day that you don't lose one of your kids is a good day, right? ;0)

    Cute kids at the park!!

  16. They are so beautiful. Your pictures were fantastic! You are not a wimp... Nicholas never gets to do anything... I am not ready to let him explore the woods... lol
    I will be praying for your friend and his family. I am sorry to hear he is not doing better. I had hoped he was almost well by now.
    God bless


Thank you for your kindness.
