Sunday the 19th was Drew's 8th birthday! To get him out of the house(so the others could decorate) I asked him to take a bike ride with me to get some fall photos, the day was beautiful! He and I headed up the dirt road towards the hills. The trees were so beautiful shining bright yellow with the sun streaming through them. With camera in hand I started to take pictures of the trees and him riding or walking through them. He insisted on taking photos of me as well. Only his were a little more artistic, thru the grass or the trees. He actually had a good eye for a picture. I can share what we did but how do I share his exuberance for a good photo,telling me Abi will love this one? Or his patience while I took just one more shot!? How do I share his boisterous laugh as his mother zoomed past him riding her bike down a hill? ( By the way it was only due to the fact that my tires were bigger!!) His sweet smile when he got a phone call from his brothers and sisters to wish him "Happy Birthday"? I cherish all the moments with him I guess because he is our last and I know how fast childhood flies. I can hardly believe he is already 8 years old!! Hope these photos help you capture the moment.
