I took this photo back on Easter 2006 when Duke was a baby. These were the days when I could follow my boys around with the camera and they could care less. Now they see it and run… Not to mention that Duke is now almost 5’9” at 13… Times do change!
That is Paul’s tricycle from his childhood. His mother purchased it for him used back in the 60’s and we found it stashed away in the empty chicken pen when we moved into Paul’s childhood home. Both my boys rode this trike and I still have it. I have a fondness for old stuff. Insert Paul’s joke here where he says the same and looks over at me. Hee hee!!!
The kitty in the photo is Amber. I adopted her my first year in college and she lived to be almost 20 (another old thing I loved) and was my constant companion. She was about 18 in that photo. She loved Duke so much and followed him everywhere. But sometimes she got on his last nerve, thus this captured moment of him shoving her away with his foot. I miss Amber…
I wanted to wish everyone a Wonderful Easter weekend! One of my sisters is in town (Heather) and my boys can’t wait to play with their cousins. They will be here any minute and there is such anticipation in the air right now.
I promised the kids a scavenger hunt for Easter, a first for me. I usually frantically throw some chocolate in some plastic eggs on Sunday afternoon and throw them all around the yard. I will never win any mom awards for holiday planning, decorating, or executing…
But this year I wanted to do something special since the kids are older. The hunt will be in our house and yard and the clues will be left in plastic eggs. The clues will lead to their Easter basket which is already filled with goodies today since I planned ahead for once in my life.
Guess I better get those clues written ASAP. 😉
I will be back early next week with my newest action!!! Happy Easter!
I edited this photo of Duke and Amber with the Freesia preset from the Pretty Presets “Color Luxe” collection.
