I’ve been thinking spring in lots of different ways this week, in particular by doing a big spring cleaning of old photos. I’m happy to report that I now have back up copies of every picture taken of my children since birth. I came across the lovely picture of Teddy from the of May in 2006 (my pre-blogging days) that put me in a very cheerful mood so I thought I would share.
It’s funny though, although this picture of is tranquil and lovely it comes from a trip that was anything but. There were three generations of us in a large and gorgeous beach house in Lewes, Delaware. We were there for a week, and at each point during our stay someone from each generation was really sick. We actually ended up taking Tommy to the emergency room because we were worried that he had appendicitis.
But in spite of that, I still have fond memories of all of us being together, relaxing on the porch, playing on the sand, and enjoying the lily pond in the enclosed yard behind the house as Teddy is doing above.
Do you have fun weekend plans? I’ve got a very kid-friendly outing set for Saturday that I’m excited about – it involves a local museum we haven’t yet seen and a geocaching activity. I’ll be sure to share next week along with some great posts about our trip to England (yes, I’m still writing about that…)
(I do realize, by the way, that this is just a gratuitous cute-kid photo. I hope you’ll indulge me.)
