We're on a quick turnaround as we leave again on Thursday for a conference in Slovakia. So when our son, Tyler, called to say he and the family would be in Frydlant on Tuesday, and could they stop by, I didn't hesitate to say yes! I've missed them these past weeks.
After naps (not me, but the boys 😂), snacks and playtime, we all headed out for a walk in the neighborhood, with a certain little somebody tagging along.
Many, many years ago Curious George belonged to Uncle Caleb (I think he got him for his 5th birthday!); but he's been in a toy box for years now waiting for someone else to love him. Judah is very happy to oblige!
Today George was begging to go on the walk with Judah (or was it the other way around?! 😉) so he accompanied us as we went to explore springtime in the area.
It was a momentous occasion in that it was our first walk together since they moved here. I expect there will be many more in the years to come!
It was only days ago that spring popped out here, I'm told. There is sure nothing like it when it goes from the dead to winter to spring, all in a matter of weeks or sometimes, even days!
Judah has the same trait as George...curious! It's a good trait to have as a two and a half year old. And sometimes you just have to sit with your friend and soak in all that's going on around you.
But then, you see some rocks and you just can't resist! Oh the wonder of endlessly throwing rocks into the ditch!
|Truth be told, I wanted to take a picture of their family, but rock throwing just couldn't be interrupted!|
We take this commercial break to show off Asher and his daddy!
Back to Judah and Curious George...when you really get curious, like looking at all the purple flowers in the neighbor's lawn, then mommy gets a chance to be George's friend.
But soon, the boy and monkey are back to their inseparableness! It is just pretty cute watching them together! 😉
As we slowly made our way back home, George and Judah found all number of things to stop and look at.
Lara was ever so sweet to stop for every interest of theirs along the way!
Oh the simple joy of a walk with a friend to hang onto
