Camping on Washington State's Olympic Peninsula with a group of good friends was one of the highlights of my summer.
The Olympic Mountains
With my friend Liv's hubby driving directly from work in town...she and her kiddos decided to go along with me!
The girlies were definitely ready to hit the road.
Lil' G wasn't quite so sure.
And when it came to having his picture taken...he was not a happy camper.
So, I had to be sneaky.
While Liv and one of the girlies stepped away for a moment...Lil' G and his biggest sis decided to do a little bird-watching.
"I love you."
"I love you!"
"I love you..." Lil' G could still be heard softly saying as his mama returned to the car...with her stuck-in-traffic hubby on the phone.
"He's saying that he loves his daddy," Liv told Big G.
"I love you...," I heard the sweet lil' boy voice whisper from behind me once again, "I love that BIRD!"
I love this picture...even though it's a little dark and grainy and crooked.
Big G's boy was certainly excited about his first trip on a ferry...
...but we had all hoped that his daddy could be there for the ride.
It is, however, just an itty bitty trip and Lil' G's daddy...
...was waiting just around the bend.
But this time...when the wee tow-headed boy whispered, "I love you," he wasn't talking to a big birdie.
To be continued...
I hope ya'll have a beautiful week!
