So we closed out summer last evening with one more ride on the carousel for Will at the local beach, and it might have been the most beautiful evening of the year. We certainly can’t improve on summer after that, so we might as well move on to fall. Happy October!
Each horse on this antique flying horse carousel was painstakingly restored by an artist friend of ours, who also painted the scenes the kids see as they gallop by. Will loves choosing his own steed each time. Mom doesn’t love the “safety equipment”—note belt lashing him to the pole!
He’s at this delicious age where he doesn’t even ask for a second ride, and is just content to watch the carousel going around after he takes his turn. I know, I know, it’ll be different next year!
Henry is too young for the carousel, so he amuses himself playing peekaboo with his teething hand. (Remember those 15-month molars, anyone? OUCH! He is strategically hiding his teething rash, in evidence for more than a week.)
I love the accidental art he has created here with his hand against the teething hand, so I chose this one for my Best Shot Monday. For more artful photos, accidental and otherwise, head on over to Picture This!
