A playground playdate

Last week, we took Joshua out to the playground for the very first time!  Normally, we're total homebodies -- Joshua is happy to play with his toys in the living room, and if we're feeling really wild and crazy, we'll mix it up and play in his nursery!!  Real daredevils, we are...  :)  So it's a good thing we have friends like Erik and Andréa to push us a little bit out of our normal routines!

It's been such a joy watching our little boys play with each other.  They're just getting to the point of noticing other babies, and Caleb can really bring out the giggles in Joshua.  :)  So it was a lot of fun going to the playground and watching them play!

Caleb, having the more adventurous parents, is a total natural on the swings.  Joshua was a bit more unsure of it all... But as long as daddy was there and helping him out, J-bear had a pretty good time!

Nerdy photography note: I also got the chance to play with my 85mm f/1.8 lens -- such a sweeeeet focal length!!  The photos below with the prettiest compression and background blur were taken with that lens.  :)

I'm kind of a swinging champ.  It's no big deal.

Unsuspecting Joshua; unsure Joshua

 Nothing says "Let's be friends" like a poke to the eye!

Yummy sand toys; heart-melting smile!

We all had such a blast -- we're definitely going to have to do something like this again, now that cooler weather is finally here!
