Birthday Walk

Look at this precious boy! This was my favorite part of my birthday this year - I went for a walk in the woods with my boys. With every adventure with Miles it seems we either begin or end with a meal - this kids loves to eat.
So we sat and ate outside near the Blandford chicken coop, then we walked to "our tree." This was the first time Miles was grown up enough to sit by the tree alone.

We have taken pictures at this tree on (or around) every solstice and equinox since before he was born. I hope we can continue this tradition and watch him grow through the seasons. This equinox was special because it was marked by the rise of the Full Harvest Moon. Michael and I both love this time of year, perhaps because we both have birthdays in the Fall. I also think there is something so special about this season when you live in a temperate forest. As the colors of the leaves turn it seems so dramatic and it truly does feel like change is in the air.

  1. Sally, I love these pictures! The photo of Miles by your tree is just amazing. I can picture him growing taller each year by that tree. He is such a doll.
