As I sit here and gaze upon the photos I took yesterday,
I realize this particular morning walk wasn’t so much about the slow pace of travelling on foot with toddlers,
or the adorable pose he struck up there on the big stump.
Or the flowers we found.
It wasn’t about the weather.
Or her blond hair and blue eyes.
Or the way he took over the stroller and wouldn’t give it back.
It wasn’t about the bridge we came to.
Or the water that was under it
or the leaves we threw in it.
What the camera truly noticed on this day,
what it really loved,
was the shoes.
Her adorable little size 6 shoes.
