I think I did mention that it was Matthew's third birthday this past week. And then I went and posted a few year old pictures of him. I got lucky this week - his mother sent me a whole group of pictures they'd taken on an outing to a local lake. They were scouting some spots to weekend camp and found this lovely lake about an hour and a half from their home. What a great spot! The kids were gathering dandelions and she shot some cute pictures of them. I had some time tonight to retouch a few of them, and so here are some more current pictures of Matthew and big sister Lexi.
Proof that a bouquet of dandelions and wildflowers can be one of the most beautiful armful of flowers ever picked by small hands. Who doesn't remember making a wish before blowing a poof of dandelion seeds to the wind? These are memories inspired by fancy mixed with a bit of magic. Looking at these images I'm seized by an overwhelming desire to hop a plane to Denver. Tonight.
But I've saved my favorite picture for last. Here is Matthew on his birthday - one excited little three year old boy. Birthday cards tucked under his arm and so full of life and enthusiasm for everything a three year old's life includes. I'm quite sure the possibilities are endless.
I think I'm in love.
