A Photo a Week – At Play

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week

My granddaughter and her second cousin got together last week and all seemed to go well as they chased each other around the room, giggling and laughing as they ran. That is until he caught her and accidentally pushed her into the wall. I could tell that it hurt and it took a few minutes of mommy cuddles to calm her down. The two cousins continued to play but the age difference of two years clearly affected how they played. My granddaughter is four and her cousin is two. She was fascinated with his computer game and he didn’t want her to play with it. He liked her stuffed toy but preferred to throw it around. I’m sure as they get older they’ll have more in common. Time will tell.DEAEAB38-06A4-4085-AC77-B87BDC8F2F8B440F3AA0-2CAB-4B12-A3AC-056ADA3431E35F21CC92-0EF2-4880-8890-E634ED3559C2

A Photo a Week Challenge – Babies

….thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

I love babies and our family is expecting a new one in January. For this challenge I had to go back into the archives to bring you baby pictures.

Our granddaughter has always loved the camera. In the second shot you can see how she perked right up when she knew that her photo was being taken.20160713-dsc0463jpg-27904656623-o

A cool overcast day. A great day to spend indoors and enjoy a quilting show in Orangeville.

A Photo a Week Challenge – Open Topic

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

I’ve chosen pumpkins and gourds for my subject matter this week. Of course I couldn’t keep it to one photo. On our way home from closing the cottage last week we stopped at a local farmer’s pumpkin sale. Not only did he have pumpkins but to be different from Walmart he was also offering a large variety of gourds. Now gourds are not edible but they make for fine decorations inside and outside your home. We really appreciated all the effort he made to make a creative and beautiful displays of his products.IMG-4057
