Jeremy is up at the cabin this weekend for an owners work weekend and since I was supposed to run the Olympia Half Marathon tomorrow, Carter and I were on our own. Original plan was to head to Olympia this afternoon to stay in the motor home with Grandma and Grandpa … except then I found out 3 lanes of I-5 southbound were supposed to be closed all weekend. Um, aren’t there only three lanes on the freeway? Yeah – being stuck in a car for several hours with the “EEEE!” kid did not sound smart. The lame side of me took over and I bailed on the run – it was just too much hassle at this point.
The bright side of this is that I enjoyed a wonderful day with Carter. He was a bit cranky in the morning, but after his second nap of the day, things turned around considerably! We spent some fun time outside together, where I got some great photos. And each naptime I spent out in the yard, trying to get rid of the final remains of the dirt pile. ALMOST THERE!
This first shot reminded me why I love photography so much. Definitely printing this.

He didn’t keep in on for long, but this was one of the better shots.
I was having to bribe him with snacks in order to sort of sit still – always a challenge with him!
Of course we have to have the football out with us!
