Walking Together

The kids and I walk basically the same route around our neighborhood in the afternoons or early evenings whenever the weather is nice enough (meaning not too hot or humid at this point).  The boys ride their bikes and I pull K in the green wagon as we make our way around the few familiar blocks.

Depending on the season something is always blooming here.  I usually take some time to stop and marvel at whatever gorgeous flower is popping out and calling for my attention.  From Camellias in the winter to Gerber daisies in the fall, it’s like a flower show here all year around. And I love it.

I also love that I have my babies to see all the beauty as they go with me, even though they might complain just a bit as I stop a few a lot of times to capture it with my camera – to immortalize each bloom that amazes me, like snowflakes, no two the exact same. What can I say?  It’s just all too beautiful to resist…

Kinda like my babies.
