These are letters to Jack, my son, and my daughter, Audrey. You have given me the gift of motherhood. This is just a little gift back. I want to share my experiences with you of your childhood from my perspective of watching you grow - of being your Mom.

Evening Stroll



You know the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words? Well, here’s an example of that!

Lately, you and I have been winding down the day with an evening walk together where we collect leaves and check out everything in the neighborhood. We only ever go about a couple of blocks from home, but we always find so much to “discover”.

I decided to document one of these walks for posterity. I love you, honey! I hope you enjoy this like I do:

Leaving for the walk and you've already found a leaf treasure:

Running to the sidewalk at the beginning of the walk:

Another leaf fell...

Look, Mommy!

Here you were excited because there was a dog in a front yard barking at you:


Leaving the pumpkins, we had to run down the hill. You LOVE running down hills!:

They have these orange construction cones in Toy Story 2, so you HAD to check this out:

Onto the next thing!

You LOVE playing with rocks!

Throwing a couple of rocks in the sewer...

A little game of chase with you looking back to see how close I am. I'M GONNA GETCHA!

Checking out a neighbor's planter. You were enjoying taking dirt OUT of the planter and dropping it into the white decorative container...

Look, Momma!! A plane!!!! :)

A quick milk break on the run...

More plane spotting:

You found a small branch with all it's leaves attached. You were so excited, you couldn't contain yourself and wanted to show the world!:

Momma, look! There's a witch on that lightpole!

Balance beam walking at the neighborhood park:

Swinging on the swings, but it's starting to get dark...

Stopping by Aunt Kelly and Uncle Bobby's on the way home...

Where's Uncle Bobby?

There he is!

SILLY Uncle Bobby!

Playing with Kelly and Bobby and the star on their mirror...

I just wanted to preserve one of these walks for posterity, Jack. But each one is a new adventure with you!

Bridget, these photos are incredible! I love every one of them. What a great recount of your walk. I can practically smell the fall air and hear Jack's ohhhh's through the pictures. Awesome. Nice job!
