Meredith on the other hand, is the exact opposite of Mackenzie and would rather be going in the opposite direction of me. I had kind of been avoiding the outside while Meredith could only crawl because I didn't want her crawling all over the concrete and trying to eat rocks like she did at the beach pool thing we went to this summer. Now that she's walking more confidently, I decided she would love a trip out to see my grandparents and play outside on their property. She had a blast outside and with the exception of keeping her away from the pond, she was able to walk around wherever and explore without any worries about getting in the street or falling off playground equipment.
"I love it outside!"
Mackenzie liked running around too!
feed the fish! ;)
Just to prove that not all of the pictures turn out like you want them to, here's what happened when I asked Mackenzie to smile...
Oh, thank you sweetie - that's just the shot I wanted! ;)
