Mother Nature’s Valentine

The first beautiful day after a few weeks of rainy, dreary, cold weather. We took advantage of it the minute we got out of church. Peter and I found a frisbee in front of the church that was left over from the Hermes parade on Friday night. We tossed it around while we waited for his folks.

Once we got home from church, we changed our clothes and went for a walk in Audubon Park. I haven’t been there for ages, it feels like. Of course, it’s just the same, but with the sun shining and the air feeling warm after so long, it felt even more beautiful.

Peter and Penny had fun on the playground. I can’t believe how old they are both getting. I was telling Amanda that Penny is almost as old as Peter was when I first came to live with them in New Orleans. He has grown up so gradually that it barely seems noticeable until I see old pictures.

We stopped by the birds to say hello before heading back home for lunch.

Thanks for the sweet card, Mother Nature. We love it when you show us your best Southern hospitality.

    That’s really sweet Katie. I like the whole Mother Nature Valentine idea, it really was a love note from her -eh Hey I think you have even more beautiful pictures of the kids. Where can I see those? I’m so glad you love to take pictures. I’m a lucky gal.

    Beautiful pictures again, Katie. Happy Valentines Day. Those trees are magnificent and so artistic. It would be great to be with you walking in Audubon Park. It makes me anxious for Spring to come.

I love comments! Seriously, they make my day. Thanks for contributing to the conversation!
