Taking it all in

We love warm weather - so hooray for a few weekends ago when it was 85* and sunny! Walking on the trails at Silver Creek MetroPark sounded like a great idea. We started off on what we thought was a 1.5 mile trail hike, and ended up going about 3 (the home stretch with me carrying B). But it was beautiful, and despite being dehydrated, sweating, and tired (HA!) we had a lot of fun.

I also got to take pictures for my photography class assignment on that day, and heard a lot of, "COME ON, MOM!!!" (Btw, Ben's long since stopped calling me "mommy". Its now "mom". And sometimes it even comes with attitude..."mooo-oooommmm!")

I love these next 3 photos of Bennett. They are unposed (like most of the shots I take) and I think they do a good job of showing you how curious he is :-)

Wow! That photography class is paying off. What great pictures.
I do like those one of Ben by the tree. Its fun to be a kid and explore.
It looked like a fun walk. A wonderful way to spend time with the kids. Thats the stuff they truly remember.
Ps: The Hot Dog thing is really gross when you think about it. I'm glad you sorted it all out for me.
