Funny thing is…we weren’t going to have a fun outing this day. It was raining, Maya was sick, I hadn’t taken a shower. Then…the rain parted, Maya was on her lunch “high”, and I thought…well, why not?! What else are we going to do? The best part? This entire shoot lasted 10 minutes…and it’s one of my favs. We were going to keep running and playing, but Maya decided to run into the muddy stream and fell. She was still game to play, but I figured a wet muddy sick toddler needed to go home.
This is such an amazing little hidden park. You can pull up (I’m sure illegally) and park at the entrance. Maya can see me from her car seat. I can take pics. Then I grab her. Take a few with her, and then let her run wild. She loves it. I love it. It’s a WIN for us both! Oh, and it’s about 3 minutes from our house!
Before all the mud, while she was in the car finishing her snack…I took these really quick 😉Yes, I managed to wait a few weeks before photographing these leather pants again.
And yes, I wiped some mud off at the end of all this, and they are good as new-WIN!! And…she’s OFF and RUNNING down the path! Which she thinks is just about the funniest thing ever! And then…she went exploring in the mud and slipped. It’s the number one reason I like to thrift most of her clothes. I might have had a heart attack had I paid retail for any of this, but I didn’t. And…it all washed out anyways…
