Henry and I are getting the hang of venturing out and about to explore the world together, and I love it. This morning, we played with friends, then spent the afternoon visiting with another friend out at her campsite at the state park. Then we met up with Dad for dinner at home and a trip downtown for the Street Performers Series–one of our favorite things about Summer. Gosh it was just the perfect day to be outside–and the perfect evening, too! A slight breeze, sun and shade, cooler temps. Love.
I grabbed a few shots of Henry on his beach towel, just hanging out in his sun hat with a handful of favorite toys. Here are two gems from this afternoon:
And later on…
There’s always a great variety of talent and entertainment among the Thursday night street performers, and tonight was no exception. We usually just stroll and observe at a distance, but on this fine evening, we decided a little participation would be more fun. So, I wandered up to the henna table and in less than a minute walked away with a sweet little reminder of India:
Then Henry, although fast asleep, participated in a little art project by lending his left foot…and the end result was this adorable little caterpillar for the bug himself. Marking Henry’s tiny toes at three months and being oh-so-adorably cute, this one’s a framer for the nursery, for sure (I think I sense a series coming on):
We wrapped up the night among a crowd of 100 or so, enjoying the quick hand and tricks of a local magician–I’d forgotten how fun that can be! Henry David was a tired little man at the end of a full day, but he’s sleeping soundly now after a story and a bedtime snack. Then there was time to clean, squeak in a bit of work, catch up a tad on emails and pour over photos for a bit. Now, as I head to bed myself, I’ll likely sneak one more peek and a kiss on the forehead for my favorite little boy–two more things to love about an already lovely day.
looking forward to tomorrow and whatever new delights it will hold!
