This kid mystifies me sometimes. He has no qualms about leaving my side or going headfirst down ridiculously tall slides but he's TERRIFIED of the dinky carousel at the mall. He REFUSED to ride it at playgroup today. He shook with terror when I tried to place him on a horse. He did, however, find great pleasure in watching everybody else ride. Take a look at his crazy excited face (you've really got to click on the head shot to get the full effect!).
Our scary ghost mall from last winter has closed down due to asbestos and black mold (maybe that's why zeb has asthma!) so we have changed walking group to aerobics at the church and an occasional mall walk at the far away mall where we met today. There is a great play area where the kids can run wild after being strapped in their strollers for a few miles! Zeb loves the place!
