sunday's snow...

was one of which had been waiting

a long overdue jaunt needed to be taken

DSCN0361 edit 1.jpg

it is not too often that i am the one being captured

but thanks to one of my littles

and a gift from his nana

i think there may be more moments that arise

she who is rarely without a pair of needles and tea

_DSC7334 edit 1.jpg

as the years have gone by

a sign we've come to know

when we see a dusting of snow across the land

there most definitely will be

good times to be had

_DSC7384 edit 2.jpg

as one hopped out to lock the hubs

i savored a quick moment to capture the trees

_DSC7395 edit 2.jpg

the road we chose

a treasure of ours

it looked quite promising

some years it just isn't so

and we end up having to travel farther down

but today was our day

there was not a doubt in our minds

_DSC7402 edit 2.jpg

the only problem to be forsaken 


with adventures comes patience

being a husband and little of mine

is surely no small task

and it may not always be fun

it requires each to dig down deep

and pull from the very depths of their core

a tremendous amount of patience to behold

this is the something they have come to know and accept

so while i am snapping away

they sit with grace and ease

and the only words that are spoken


"did you happen to look left"


"hey mama...did you see"

_DSC7458 edit 1.jpg

one wee littlest yells from the back

"just around the corner...right"

_DSC7517 edit 1.jpg

and sure enough a few feet away

our truck comes to a stop

and within a matter of seconds

the boards and toys come flying out

_DSC7647 edit 1.jpg

up we three go

climbing the hill

at the top

one wee little has a brilliant thought

"hey mama...lets all three go down"

i take the back with one wee littlest in the middle and one wee little takes the front

error on our behalf

really i should have known this was trouble

if only you could have seen him fly

we hit a bump and off he flew

laughing all the way

now that did not frighten one wee littlest

he turns to me and says

"mama...i want to fly like baba did"

and fly he did

P1250822 edit 1.jpg

over and over 

they came flying down

then one wee little switched to a board

which sparked a thought'

"hey papa...why don't you go down"

_DSC7689 edit 1.jpg

so up he climbed and down he went

hence going a wee bit to fast

another not so wise moment at hand

going down on one wee littles board

truly not meant for a grown man

_DSC7593 edit 1.jpg

amist all their fun

he and i

we sat quietly together

savoring a few spare moments

and watched the vivaciousness of our littles

oh the spirit of life and living children bring forth

a blessing that never seems to stop

and all to soon

our time was calling

as the sun slowly starting sinking

down into the horizon

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said:

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead, where there is no path and leave a trail"
