This was the first time the family was together at the new cottage in Coboconk (I know, I know its hilarious! People who live there call it “Coby”). The kids, Chris’s niece and nephew, were really into hamming it for the camera.
Mr. B is about 2 and a half, and he’s one of the happiest little kids I think I’ve ever met. If he falls, if he runs into something, he just gets back up and keeps on going. Nothing fazes this little guy. I just love this picture of him – its a bit out of focus but its such a perfect capture of his adorable squishy face.
Jia is 4 and she is infatuated with my knitting. She’s too little to figure it out yet but I’ve tried to show her on her own needles a few times. She mimics the motions and turns it all into a tangled mess but I’m encouraged that she’s so into it! When she gets a bit older…
Again, not a perfect shot, but I love the light, the motion and the grin on Mr. B’s face (he’s running around in mama’s shoes).
And this was the first time the kids had really been around Zeus for any length of time. Zeus was in love with them of course, and they were really excited to go see him wherever he was, to help feed him and to pet him. Mr. B was particularly smitten (and Zeus reciprocated of course).
