A Beautiful Thing

Oh the wonder and peace of childhood discovery. Edging closer to something so beautiful and yet fighting the urge to run away in fear.
And then the wind puffs a little comic relief our way, moving an otherwise perfectly dead butterfly into lifelike flight. Total terror.
Also, I Confess. The vette is not ours. But I tell you what, it's a beautiful car. It belongs to a friend (Anita guessed it!) and he drove it over to let us have a peek inside -- which was just enough of a peek to know it's not the right car for us. On so many levels.

Oh!The delight a beautiful child brings! Now I can go to bed. This picture made my day.

That was beautifly done, like always.

PS. Maybe, the car can be a graduation gift (to you and Steve) when your boys finish college? Better yet, the car can be a thank you gift, to Mommy, from all her boys for all the hard work you do/have done... ;)

I looked at the car and thought...."where is my brother? he would never spend this kind of money on a car....at least not HIS money!!!!" But this picture of Mason is even better than the yellow flash car!

I think I mentioned my favorite thing about Mason when we saw you guys in IF...he has the most EXPRESSIVE face ever! I love it! And Adam still talks about how much fun he had playing with Mason!
