Well here we are, the 9th of April, right outside Cedar Rapids and its snowing! Lyndon, our oldest was so excited and said, “Momma! Its CHRISTMAS! Where are the lights?!” He wanted to get the tree out and start decorating like any normal 3 year old would at the sight of a December…I mean April…. snowfall. I needed to think quick and get his mind off Christmas so I said, “Hey! Lets go outside, take pictures and find Scraptors!” For those of you that don’t know what scraptors are they are characters in the cartoon show Dinosaur Trux and Lyndon is convinced they are hiding behind every bush in our yard. Once outside we got to work snapping pictures and running away from all the scraptors that Lyndon screeched were racing after us. Capturing his imagination in full swing is something I am so thankful I am able to do and every image is cherished by our family. As a parent there are just so many moments we don’t want to forget, this is one of them for me. This image below of Lyndon is one of those memories that I think I’ll never forget. We dove under the 35ft tall pine tree just seconds from being caught by the “biggest” scraptor as Lyndon described it. This pine tree was only 7ft tall when we purchased our home 6 years prior to him being born and sitting under it in silence watching him watch the snow fall over our pasture brought me to tears realizing we wont be running from scraptors much longer….. why do they have to grow up so fast?
I hope you enjoy these images as much as we do.
