The last of the photos from house-sitting this summer. The dragonfly that hung out in the garden all afternoon and the first baby tomato growing.
Oh, Cole! He’s such a great four-yea-old. Huge into Fresh Beat Band (especially Morena…but not the New One) and got a drum kit for his birthday. Then Heather, Cole, Ada and I hit French Park to find That Tree. There was running, climbing, jumping, drumming, eating, laughing, sleeping and being reminded to close the door before we drove off home.
Ada is always on the move! She loves to climb, wander, and play with bracelets. It has been so much fun watching Ada grow up and learn all that she is learning. Happy First Year, Ada!
Four years ago Heather and I packed Cole up in their van and headed to French Park, because there was a beach and trees. Cole wanted to crawl and Heather wanted pictures of her first one-year-old. So for Cole’s first birthday pictures, we chased him through sand and around trees and into the water. Little did we know on that day that we were creating a yearly tradition. Drive to that park, find that same tree.
Happy 4th birthday, Cole! It is so fun watching you grow up!
More pictures from the day I said goodbye to Joi Joi at Long Lake Park.
This was the one photo I took at Jamie’s birthday bash in July. I also have not enjoyed a party that much in a long. long. time.
Beauty. Color. Calm. These words describe Oma’s garden.
