Precious Moments

Another Christmas tradition here in Czech is to take a walk with the family on Christmas Eve.  In our case, it became a post Christmas activity.

Since we were celebrating with the extended family, and the boys love trains, we took them out for a short train ride in a neighboring city.  We then went on the back roads that connected one train station to another.  I was lucky to snap a couple of pics of my little boy with his cousins.

Precious little moments….

I tried to coax them into looking at the camera, but wasn’t very successful.

Someone is always looking away.

A simple thing can also be a reason to play.

In this case, a simple bottle cover became a soccer ball.

Although the walk was not in the nicest part of town, it is one of the most memorable walks we’ve ever had.

Happy New Year, everyone!

    Dear Grace, this makes me smile, and takes me back to the days when my grownup kids were youngsters. The photos remind me of a litter of rambunctious puppies, playful and so happy to be alive! Happy New Year to you and your family.
