Playing with Oliver

I was excited to spend a day with Oliver a little while back while Danica had a long day of shoots. We played trains inside for a little while then went outside with Onyx.oliver_trains_planes_and_onyx Oliver loves planes and birds flying around. We threw sticks for Onyx to chase, spun the big flower in the garden, and played peek a boo with the shed door. I absolutely *love* Oliver’s surprised face! He is so full of life and joy!oliver_hide-n-seek_shed door_surpriseWhile Oliver took his nap, I spent some time with Danica’s succulents. Danica has the greatest planters full of the nicest, little succulents so vibrant and colorful!oliver_garden_plants_purple_succulents

One Way to Rake

Dad and Mom decided to cut down some trees and branches so I had a chance to capture the fall colors. We teased dad that cutting down the trees is one way to rake the yard.

Glorious Morning Glory

In this meadow starred with spring
Shepherds kneel before their king.
Mary throned, with dreaming eyes,
Gowned in blue like rain-washed skies,
Lifts her tiny son that he
May behold their courtesy.
And green-smocked children, awed and good,
Bring him blossoms from the wood.

Clear the sunlit steeples chime
Mary’s coronation-time.
Loud the happy children quire
To the golden-windowed morn;
While the lord of their desire
Sleeps below the crimson thorn.
