The last time we went there taking pictures was a lot easier. We would stand Adri up and she would do all her poses. Pictures from that trip here Morikami 2011. This trip however it was not easy to get her to take pictures. She's now at the age where she wants to pull everything, touch everything, throw everything, etc. Trying to get a picture is quite a task these days as you can see in the videos below.
When we got over to the bamboo Adri kept trying to pull on it and was saying "it's heavy". Um, yeah, it's heavy. Then she kept picking up all the gravel from the trail because she wanted to throw it in the water or on top of Buddha. I kept telling her don't touch the rocks. She would look at the ground and say "don't touch" and point and then a minute later she's back to picking up gravel and looking for water to throw it in. She also wanted to lead the way and I told her "wrong way" so she kept telling us the whole time "right way" and "wrong way" and pointing to where we need to go. She impressed me when we got over to the fish and she could throw the food better than the 3-4 year old boy next to her. Then we took her over to the Museum and she started doing her crazy baby dance.
When we got over to Buddha she heard the other kids and she yelled out "Buddha". Then she said "he's crazy". She threw rocks on Buddha then told him she's sorry and gave him a hug followed by trying to tickle his belly and blow raspberries on it. She's just too much sometimes. I couldn't stop laughing. There's two kids in that video that she kept following around and giving hugs to. These kids were nice and gave her hugs back but at the end of our walk we found a group of four small kids that weren't so nice. She ran up to them and said "hugs" and they said "no, run away".
After walking a majority of the park herself she was a pretty tired baby when we got back to the car. She crashed out pretty quick and the spoiled kid woke up inside Cold Stone a half hour later. This kid is too spoiled. I only wish that I could wake up in Cold Stone with a big bowl of cake batter ice cream mixed with peanut butter cups in front of me. We have a video of Adri waking up and eating her ice cream but I didn't post it on here because Natalie ruined it with her boob.
