GROWTH– the Weekly Photo Challenge
And the grandchildren have grown even more since these photos were taken.
Except maybe Jack holding his Christmas present from his Grandma Marlene. She takes the year of photos and creates a hardcover book for each grandchild. She makes one for the family, too, which is really nice to have the hard copies instead of a picture on a computer or phone. A good way to document growth from year to year.
Lasst week at the Children’s Museum Charlie was thinking about Mr. Rogers’ tennis shoes/sneakers.
He loves watching the old shows.
Mr. Rogers, our Pittsburgh icon. RIP
Toddler in the mist.
Charlie (2) joins cousins Maura and Michael in the cloudy mist.
The first time it started and hissed and the air got foggy, he ran out, not knowing what to expect.
Wasn’t long before he joined them in the Cloud Arbor by Artist Ned Kahn.
When we finish our time at the Children’s Museum the kids always run to the tall metal pipes and eagerly wait for the start of the misty foggy cloud.
You should hear the happy squeals.
Michael is visiting Pittsburgh along with sister Maura and cousin Charlie. Today we went to the Children’s Museum on the North Side.
