Crutchfield Family Reunion

Every year, Chris' mother's side of the family holds a family reunion at Howdershell Park in Hazelwood. Last year we had a good time, but this year was even better. Charlotte had a great time cruising around the park with her walker and also enjoyed the swings.
I love the look of anticipation on her face in this picture.

We spent quite a while on Friday shopping for shoes to accomodate her new orthotics. The orthotics will hopefully help give Charlotte more stability while walking. We tried them out for the first time on Saturday... below is Charlotte telling about what she thought of them.

"You see...my feet are so tiny, and then you put these big shoes on them and ask me to walk! I just didn't like it one bit. I kept falling down and couldn't move my ankles like I like to. Mommy and Daddy say it will take time for me to get used to them, but I much rather prefer to walk on my own. I guess I'll try them again though... At least they are pretty."
