A perfect October day with Colton

When Micah was just seven months old, I stood in a hospital hallway and waited for my friend Cathi to deliver her baby boy.  As soon as he was born, I slipped through the hallway with his dad and followed him for the first hour of his life and I photographed all of the special moments.  Then, when he came home from the hospital, I was over there every chance I got.  He seemed so tiny compared to my big 7 month old.  But, I really loved him!  Now, that same little boy is 3.5 years old and my own 4 year old (he was still 3 on this particular day!) thinks he is so much fun!

As you can see, they don't have any fun together.  Nope, none at all!  But, regardless of that, we still try to get them together whenever we can!  

And, sometimes those times together means we put plates on our heads.  
On this particular day, they got to make their own pancakes at The Old Spanish Sugar Mill.  They sprinkled blueberries, flipped pancakes and scrambled eggs.  It was a fun morning!

After they finished eating, they moved to the playground to run off some of that endless energy!  

In case you are wondering, no 3 year old boy can be near the Springs without at least putting their feet in for a little dip.  

The last picture you saw is the last time Micah was dry.  He stepped right off the left side of the steps into the freezing 72 degree water.  Margie quickly grabbed him but he was already soaked!  One might think that would make him want to leave.  Nope.  It made him want to swim.  And, Colton too. All the could think about was getting into that water!

If you get wet at the Springs and still have to drive home, you might have to (or, in their case, GET TO) wear your undies on the ride home!!!
We got back to Margie's and got them changed and them right into the back yard for a lot of playing!

It was a really fun day with our friends.  We are looking forward to hanging out with them again soon!  But, maybe I'll drink and energy drink first!
