One of the most fun things to do is to follow a family with children through a beautiful park on a beautiful day … especially when they have toddlers! Aren’t these 16 month old twins the cutest little people? I’m always so happy to capture moments in time for families to remember the ages and stages of life.
Look who I found as I walked through the park! A sweet wee one in her rocker!
Sweetie, please leave your cute gold headband on!
If you have never visited Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and if you ever get the opportunity, be sure to walk the “Sculpture Walk” downtown. These are just a few of the many sculptures that line the street on either side. Each has a detailed description, the sculptor’s name, and the date. Each sculpture is so unique!
Be sure to also see the beautiful Falls Park! The people of Sioux Falls have designed and created a wonderful city park around the natural waterfalls, and it’s an awesome natural wonder!
We enjoyed our visit at the end of September with friends who so graciously took us to see special sites in their pretty city.
If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it.
Perhaps this is what Thoreau had in mind when he said, “The more slowly trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core, and I think the same is true of human beings.”
Children in nature go hand in hand!
“To raise a nature-bonded child is to raise a rebel, a dreamer, an innovator–someone who will walk their own verdant, winding path.” ~~Nicolette Sowder
It’s true — girls are all about their outfits and pearls!
When you have a favorite place in your favorite park, you take your favorite rocker and enjoy the sunshine and flowers … happy ONE YEAR little Miss M! You’re lovely in lavender!
Miss E invited her friends to her favorite eatery to have an IHOP breakfast and then for some fun time in the St. Louis Selfie Room venue where they had tons of fun posing and snapping pix. (As I stayed as anonymous as possible!)
