The Boys

27 Aug

BoysAtPlaygroundI’m not sure what it is about this picture that I love so much.  It’s such a tremendous reflection of where we are in our family life.  It’s a snapshot of an afternoon spent at a playground — time treasured with the kids.

Lucas looks like he just ran in from outside the camera frame — he likely did — and he’s moments from zipping away again.  He plays with confidence now; it’s a big boy sense of security that he can climb, run, play with nearly every component of the playground.

Ben’s perched at the top of the slide and appears to be ready to scoot forward and head down. He’s recently developed a fondness for going down the slides and smiles so wide at the bottom.  He’s wearing his favorite hat.  He points for it on our way out the door, and get’s excited to see us pull it off the hook.  I think he associates it with playtime and being outside.

Tim’s got a hand on each boy and just looks so happy.  They are his boys and they adore their Daddy.  Of course they do, he’s great to at playing with them and makes their lives more fun.

Three blessings in one small frame. It’s a lucky life I live.
