CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A local mom shared some heartwarming images of two Cleveland officers stopping to play with her children on Sept. 11.

Vanessa Cleveland posted the photo and video on Facebook, and they were shared Thursday by the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association.

In her post, Vanessa said she was at her parent's home in the 4th District when she looked out the window and saw two officers approaching the kids playing outside.

She said she ran outside to see what happened, but the officers said: "We just came to play some football!"

They even stopped to pose with her son, Jeremiah Cleveland Jr., 5, who wanted a photo flexing with one of the officers.

The post says:

"So I'm over my parents house today by the 4th district and I looked out the window and seen two officers approaching the kids. I ran out to see what happen and the officers said "we just came to play some football". They introduced themselves very respectfully and spend some time with the kids talking about sports, school and push ups lol. I am happy and thankful that my kids were able to see officers in a positive light with everything that is going on in the world today. My son wanted to take a pic with officer Mike "flexing" lol. Thank you for taking time out to play some football with the kids Officer Mike and Tim!!! Please tag these officers if you know them."
