an evening out(doors)

Tonight we went to my friend Jeannie's house for dinner. Jeannie and David are my best friend Kathryn's parents, and I probably spent as much time at their house as I did at my own growing up. Kathryn and I were talking tonight about how great her parents' yard is, and how we took it for granted growing up. We played outside ALL the time, but I don't think either of us really realized until we were adults just how wonderful their property is. Tons of flowers, bushes, lots of land, and a huge yard. The woods back up to her house, and we spent hours as kids playing in the creek down in the woods.

It was great getting to take Jonah there and share with him a piece of my childhood. And it was GREAT hanging out with Kathryn, her parents and my mom for the evening. Jonah had a blast, and was, once again, a complete angel. He loves being outside... as you can see.




Kathryn and Jonah. Jonah is IN LOVE with Kathryn.










He played on this blanket the whole time we ate dinner and even let us enjoy dessert.

Yay Jonah! (That child is so proud of himself for learning to clap.)



Hope your Saturday was as sunny as ours. Can't wait for church tomorrow!

It looks like he is going to be an "outdoors" kind of guy! So cute, glad you all had a great day and were able to enjoy a complete meal; I remember those days.

He's getting so BIG! He's starting to lose that baby look and is starting to look like a toddler. Looks like a GREAT DAY!

Jess and Krissy said...

Sandy said...

Love these pictures! There's one where Jonah looks like he's about to pray, the way he's holding his hands. That child is BEAUTIFUL! I'm loving his hair . . . it's gorgeous! And boy, are you right . . . it's plain to see that he really does love the outdoors!

Oh, I was visiting someone at Forsyth Hospital yesterday and saw a car in the parking deck with a "Jonah" magnet! I love it when that happens.

Continuing to pray for sweet sweet Jonah, God's child.

In Christ,
Sandy Moore

Great pictures. We too spent the day outside (but with inlaws). My son loves to be outside too. Jonah is such a beautiful child. Those sparkly blues just get me! His face looks awesome right now!

He is SO CUTE. I almost can't stand it. You must just eat him up!

This is totally un-EB related, but honestly, once you can make it through the winter, and into his first real summer as a not-so-baby, everything gets easier. All kids love to be outside, and you have a whole summer to do that. And by the time winter rolls back around, he'll be older and more mobile and being inside won't be nearly as boring! So that's an exciting thought!

Loved the lesson of the tree! Yes, God's timing! Also love that you spent time outside in God's creation. It was a great weekend for that. We were out there a lot too.

ninesandquines said...

so i'm sitting in the minneapolis-st. paul airport right now waiting for my connection to ft. lauderdale and stopped in to see if you had another post (because you're on my daily list to check in on!)....a woman and her daughter walk by and the daughter says "mom, she's reading jonah's blog!!!!!" the woman stops and looks and we both, at the same time, say "isn't he amazing?", we smile big smiles at each other, and they keep walking....just a wonderful bright light this morning :-) have a wonderful week!

jandkland said...

I haven't commented in a while, but these pictures are fabulous! You all look great! Jonah has the most striking blue eyes, and his hair is gorgeous. I'm so glad you got to enjoy the beauty of God's world and spend time with the people you love.
