We started out with Carter riding his big wheel and me walking. That's what he wanted and I figured we could cover more ground that way, but something about his shorts and how he was sitting on the big wheel was bugging him, so he was stopping constantly to fix it and eventually we just gave up on that, turned around, dropped it off at the car, and continued on our journey walking. It was fun just to look around at nature and talk about it.

We saw this large fallen tree with a little stream underneath somewhat hidden behind the trees near the path, and it just looked so pretty.
As I mentioned in my last post, trees are starting to change more than I'd like, but at least it's pretty. I caught some gorgeous vines changing color on this pair of trees.
The color of this branch hanging over the water was striking!
And what was beyond it wasn't too shabby, either.
We walked along for a bit, looking at leaves, rocks, the giant houses beyond the bordering woods, a deer in a backyard, and whatever else an inquiring four-year-old wants to talk about.
|Oh, this kid. That smile steals my heart every time.|
|There's still a certain romance to it, no?|
Carter and I really enjoyed our walk! He's just a fun little buddy and I love seeing things through his eyes. He's a great sport and doesn't really complain about anything, so it's fun to try out things like this with him. I still want to freeze him at this age most of the time, but I know we can only have more fun the older he gets. As long as he still gives his mama hugs, we're all good!
