This One's For the Dad

This is the first rainbow Calvin ever saw. It was a beauty - arched completely across the sky. For a while, it was a double.

Henry did a lot of snoozing - I just realized how many times I took pictures of him fast asleep somewhere. This is on the floor of the boat. Maybe because that's the only time he will hold still for a picture. Or maybe because it's the only time he's cute these days. Kidding! I love him, I really do! See:
This is Cal investigating the cave that he asked Grandpa to "drive the boat into." Wonder where he got that investigative curiosity from?
Here's another shot from our day on the lake. This is the picture before we went for a slow ride on the tube behind the boat and both boys fell asleep! Later, Cal and I took a fast ride - he whooped and giggled the entire time.
This is how Cal rode most of the time - just taking it all in.And I guess a picture postcard wouldn't be complete without saying, "Wish you were here." Love you.

Looks like so much fun! I have a ton of pictures of my kids sleeping. They just seem so peaceful.

Oh- and love the picture from Wednesday's post, too...titled Driving me Crazy! :)
Hope you feel better soon!

To the Dad:
Don't you love the one of Calvin just taking it in? I do. Isn't your wife amazing? I think so. I am continually impressed by her ability to manage the homefront with all that entails, along with two precocious boys, all while coping without the companionship of her best pal. To be sure, sir. I hope you are faring well. I'm sure it's not easy for you to be away.

To the girl who wrote this post, I think it's so tender. I'm getting old when it's not just implausible love stories about pottery and ghosts that can make me cry.

I wish I were there too! I think of you guys constantly. As for Calvin's investigative curiosity and Henry's ornery streak, I have no idea where they could of come from. I wish I could have enjoyed Colorado with you again this summer. Just a few more months and I will be home again!
