Heardmont Park

Heardmont Park is a fantastic park to visit on a breathtakingly beautiful day when the squirrels are friskily running about, dogs are out playing with their owners, kids running from place to place, ball games in full swing, children on slides, the cool water running lazily downstream, a soft breeze in the trees...a two-year old in full tantrum because she is too tired to use her walker, people stopping to stare, her Daddy being humiliated...wait just a minute...surely those can't all be intermingled, can they?

For us, yep, you bet.

What started out as a spontaneous trip to the park, ended up with us leaving with an inconsolable Monkey, two tired parents and a brother who was trying his best to bust his ear phones on his I-Pod to drown out the screaming.

I don't know what is wrong with Monkey. Today was just typical of this past week. Something has got to give. She is beyond miserable and for the next week and a half, we will be going non-stop.

Bless her heart, she just can't tell me what is wrong and I don't know what to do to make it all better.

We are just so sad for her.

I will pray for Monkey, I pray for God to show you or the Dr. what is making her so grumpy. Maybe its growing pains, Billy had a lot of leg pains growing up he would cry and cry that his legs hurt. The Dr said his joints hurt from his growing so fast....Its not what is wrong with Monkey but I remember how it how it hurt when I couldnt do anything to help....Love you guys!
