This weekend was perfect. The weather was sunny, breezy and perfect. I decided to take the boys to the park to play and try out their new kites. I also wanted to practice making videos. It’s one of the things I want to incorporate in my family journal this year. Lesson: When using an iPhone, always shoot a video in landscape. Enjoy.
So, this happened.
Sometimes you have to pick and choose your battles. I like to call this “open play”.
As long as no one gets hurt and they don’t burn down the house. They can do whatever they want.
They were quiet and playing, together.

One of his favorite big brother duties lately is to help his little brother navigate the playground. He helps him down the slide and up the climbing ropes.
He tells me not to worry because he will always be there if his little brother falls.

Bubbles and balloons…
This was one of his brother Christmas gifts. He saw how hard his brother was working on getting it together, that he decided to help.
He sat in this corner for about 30 minutes (which is about a week in toddler time)
and opened each bag to help his brother put it together.
Then proudly proclaimed the toy was now his….
At first, they didn’t want to work together. I asked them to make something special for mommy. Then, magic happened.
