Yesterday morning my husband and I took our children for a walk at a nature preserve that we visit frequently. It's a beautiful place -- with all different types of environments for the kids to be surrounded by and observe. It is even more magical at this time of year, when we can see the world coming alive again before our very eyes. And there, for the first time, our children held hands while walking along the path. Our daughter called out to her big brother "hold hands!" and put her hand in his. He readily obliged. How I wished I had my camera to capture that moment forever!
Here are a few pictures of a time when I DID have my camera along with us. This was back last June (2010). My, how they've grown since then!
