A First!

We were given a band at the Baysox game so that Caleb could ride the rides in the kids' area, and we took full advantage of it!  We'd use it as leverage to keep him well-behaved so that we could go every couple of innings.  He enjoyed the moon bounce, playing basketball, pitching, and hitting games that were way too hard for him, and riding the carousel.  In fact, he rode that three times!

There weren't many people on the carousel and the waiting area was very close by, so I asked if he would like to ride it by himself. 

First time:  no thank you.  So I stayed with him.  I didn't hold him at all; I just stood next to him holding onto a different horse.  He loved riding it!  I took this picture right before that ride.

Second time:  um, no I don't think so.  So I stayed again.

Third time:  Yes!  Go over there, Mommy!  So I did!  And I got a little teary-eyed.  My little boy is old enough to ride the carousel without me!  What's more, he doesn't want me there!  

Yes, I know I was the one who offered for him to ride it by himself--three times!  I'm just a sap, I guess!  He was so proud of himself, grinning from ear to ear!
