I'm so happy!
The weather was beautiful, I was dropping a child off to work at Allenberry, I had two helpers ...
so there was no good excuse not to take the pictures.
Except that my visually impaired, hyperactive, defiant two year old is not the most photogenic.
But it was time. And the conditions were ripe.
I'm saving the best (best is relative here) photos until we can agree on which ones they are. In the meantime, enjoy these photos from the end of our shoot. I made the mistake of getting closer and closer to the water as we went. As soon as Mr. Victor heard his favorite item in all the world (after Johnny Cash, A Boy Named Sue, small fries, and donuts, of course) there was no stopping him.
At first he thought it was a bit chilly so I thought I'd be safe and the butt would stay on the log as I had requested.
But look at that...
He said, "Mommy, I'm so happy!"
Well, good, 'cause if Victor ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. That's how the saying goes, right?
This was when he got tired of hearing me say, "Turn your face to Mommy...Smile...Show me your eyes...No, big eyes, not slits...Turn back to Mommy...Smile...Look at Mommy...Smile...Show me your eyes - big eyes..."
