Walking with Mr. Asher



Asher and I walked to the park today, and I've forgotten how such an event can be so full of wonder and new things for such a little person. We chatted back and forth like magpies, and I showed him all kinds of stuff along the way .... acorns, pine cones, squirrels, sticks, ant hills, fire hydrants and flowers .... we talked about colors and sounds and the wind ... well, mostly I talked and he listened. He is so curious! Everytime I asked him to smile for my camera, he would stop and strike a pose. In these photos, he decided to sit down on the sidewalk and grin at me for one photo. You can't see his "pet" acorn, but trust me, it's tucked securely in his fist! In the other photo, he's hugging a fire hydrant. He hugged most of the fire hydrants from here to the park. Such fun!
