frisbee golf, picnic in the park & a monkey suit

...that was our weekend in a nut-shell!

My Aunt Deb & Uncle Rick got Barrett this adorable monkey outfit when he was born. Aunt Deb saw it at Kohl's and just had to have it :) The size said 0-3 months, but it looked huge and we were sure he'd be able to wear it for Halloween. Well, I decided it was time to get it out and try it on...just to see how it fit and if he could wear it as his first Halloween costume. I laid him on the floor and stuffed his chunky little feet and arms into it. He looked at me like I was crazy, but after I got it all zipped up he just laid their in a trance. It must have felt really soft and snugly! I could tell after I zipped it up, it was going to be a big snug and he likely would not fit into it come October (if you have any 9 month-old boy costume ideas, please chime in)! So, I hollered at Justin to come help me get some pictures of him in it! Barrett was like the little brother on A Christmas Story when he was all bundled up walking with Ralphy to school... we tried to sit him up and he'd just topple over. He couldn't even stand up next to his exersaucer without Justin's help! We were cracking up!

On Saturday we went to the park down the street with Uncle Bobby to play some frisbee golf. Barrett and I just strolled along behind the boys while they played. He was content with his foot propped up sucking on his bottle.
Look at those eyelashes!!

On Sunday, we took Barrett to Island Park and had a picnic lunch. It was a beautiful day! After we ate we took him over to see the geese...we didn't have any food for them, which was probably a good thing. They tend to get a little demanding and have been known to chase you down!

See...Barrett doesn't look too enthused here! I don't blame you, I was scared too Mister B!
