October 2nd, 2010

It took a few days for my mom to remember that we promised to post the photos that we were going to take. It turned out to be even a bigger photograph session then we thought. Mom took me to the park and took me out of her backpack! Granted, there wasn’t a soul around, but this is a big move!

I’m going to admit that I was a little scared. This was the first time I’ve been out of the backpack when she’s been off the property. Considering that I’ve been with her for over six years, this is a big thing! Caleb came with me like he almost always does.

Here I am at the top of the slide. This seemed to be the only bear sized thing I could do.

But it turned out to be a bit too adventurous for a small bear’s first playground visit. That was fast!

So I sat in the swing for a while. This was much more my speed. Meanwhile, Caleb was running around. He wasn’t afraid of anything—being seen by other humans, heights, or even things much bigger them himself.

Mom chased him around a bit and finally got him to come back to the backpack. It was kind of cold so we both climbed back into the safety of the backpack.

So that was my first adventure out in the world off my property. Mom says that we will try for another place someday, although it might not be till next summer. But I am glad that I got to go somewhere like this at all!

These pictures have been a big hit on my Mom’s flickr page. We’re trying to reach out the other plushie photographers!

Have a good day! I hope everything is going well for you all!

  1. Great photos of what looks like a great outing! The slide looks like fun Marlowe. It doesn't surprise me the your mom had to chase after Caleb, those youngsters can be a handful sometimes.

    Who knows Marlowe,maybe your mom will let you build a snowbear this winter.

  2. oh, that looks like a grand day out! Lovely pictures!

  3. What a great outing, Marlowe! It looks like you had a great time! Congratulations on getting out of the backpack and getting to play! Your mom's pictures are great!
