playing at the park

About a week ago we headed up to Cedar Rapids to check out their farmer's market on Saturday morning.  It is certainly quite large.  They had lots of awesome things for sale, good live music, and it wasn't too hot which we were grateful for.  Tatum even got her first balloon and spent the morning waving it around while we pushed her in the stroller.  There were a lot, and I mean A LOT, of people there pushing their pets in strollers. I have never seen so many people doing this in one place. Some of them were in strollers specifically made for pets and others were just in baby strollers.  One was even in a shopping cart! I really wish I would have gotten pictures of some them, it was the strangest thing.
 Anywho, it was a good time and I'm glad we went. The rest of our Saturday was fun too! Whitney and Eric stopped by for a quick visit! We haven't seen them since a few days after Tatum was born so it was good to catch up a little.  After that we headed to the park. Tatum and I go to this park nearly every day but let's face it, we all know Brennan is way more fun than I am, so this was a special treat. Tatum got to really explore the park.  And since we are typical parents who happen think our child is adorable we took a lot of pictures. And now I'm going to share them with you. :)

 Playing in the tunnel.
 Going down the slide "by herself".
Brennan looks excited, Tatum not so much.
Then Brennan coerced me into taking Tatum down some slides. I love both of our faces in this one. We are weirdos.
This slide had a bump that camp out of nowhere and totally surprised me. Hence the absolute crazy face.

Were we really doing all this for Tatum's enjoyment or for our own? I'll let you be the judge. :)
