Hello friends! I wanted to say thank you so much for the birthday wishes and the support and kind comments on my ups and downs post. I had a great birthday even though it started out a bit rough when we witnessed a single car crash. Fortunately, all persons will be okay (phew). I am making a little progress on my "get movin'" goals (baby steps, right?) -- more on that later but not in this post.
Now, onto today's post...
[warning: lots of pictures]
This post is long overdue but hey, why not relive some past moments anyway? The weather has turned so nature walks with YS2 (more like strolls with the occasional sprint when you've got a tot) aren’t as frequent in the evening but here’s a sampling of some of our walks from this summer and early fall…
|hot air balloon in the distance -- it actually appeared closer but the lens on my cell isn't that great. this eventually landed where we were. I would've taken pictures then but we were already in the car.|
|taking a break|
|as evidenced on his face, YS2 loves wild blackberries|
|see the little birdie?|
|again, the moon was closer but my camera makes it seem farther away -- still a pretty moon-rise|
|a boy + water + rocks + dirt = happiness|
|he looks so small -- love|
|nature imitating nature: stuff (technical term) fallen from a tree -- looks like a dragonfly!|
|someone was busy lining these pinecones up (no, it wasn't us)|
|random to me -- the only flower around so I wondered if it was planted by a person or the wind|
|this wasn't really on our walk but it's still random -- that must've taken a long time to do! Can you imagine having to take it all off before it rains?|
