eli in the park

Although the air is very crisp, the sun has been shining and we have been trying to take advantage when we can (new pictures, yay!).

Eli had chosen to wear his “fancy outfit” on this day, but before we went to the park he took off his vest and tie and put a black tank over his white dress shirt (which was over his new blue polo shirt).

And I am pretty sure he had TWO pairs of shorts on under his pants.

On the way home we stopped to say hi to the ducks.  I really hope they digest fishy crackers okay.

Since I was curious I just googled what to feed ducks:

  • Cracked corn
  • Wheat
  • Barley
  • Oats
  • Milo
  • Birdseed
  • Grapes (cut in half)
  • Frozen peas or corn (defrosted)
  • Earthworms
  • Chopped lettuce
  • Vegetable trimmings or peels (chopped)

Fishy crackers are not on the list and apparently bread, our usual go to, is bad too. 

I enjoy my alone time with Eli, mostly….he is giving this mamma a lot of drama right now and it is very nice when I have a chance to just enjoy him and all his adorable little boy cuteness.

You're brave to let him take to the park in his finery! But then again, who could resist that adorable face?

Eeesh, I've been feeding the ducks improperly all these years...

Adorable outfit there! I am sure the ducks will survive, right? Or just go to another park so you don't have to seem them dying. (cheerful, aren't I!?)
He is adorable, as always!

I so love his outfit! Tommy went through a phase where he wanted to wear a tie everywhere when he was younger.

Ducks will eat anything. Trust me.

What a cutie - lovin his style! Isabella was crawling on the ground in one of her best outfits earlier, I was worried she'd put a hole or get red mud on it!

Bliss said...

Glad you get some cuteness mixed in with the mischievousness :)
And the layered look is always in fashion so Eli might just be the next design superstar.
