It is beautiful here today in Nova Scotia and I decided I needed to take the boys somewhere that I haven't taken them yet since being back. We went to the Hemlock Ravine Park in Bedford. It's a great place with many walking trails through the woods.
This is Hemlock Ravine Park. It has a heart shaped pond at the beginning of it. The pond is called Julie's Pond. There is actually a great sign at the beginning of the park explaining the history of it that I really should have taken a picture of. Long and short of the story is Prince Edward (the guy who went on to name the little potato island) had a mistress here in Nova Scotia. Guess what her name was? She lived here in a mansion and he loved her so much he had this pond made for her in 1790.
We went walking through the woods and I snapped this shot of Joe. Damn this kid is getting tall! I can't keep him in pants that fit.
Oh Colby. Please stop growing up. I am not ready for the extremely attractive teenager you are turning into.
Unedited because I couldn't bring myself to edit it but DAMN when did he learn this? He asked me if he could do this and I really didn't think he would!
I love this picture. You can tell Colby is faking but it's still funny.
They make my heart sing. I love Joe's face in this one.
Nothing better than hugging a tree. I told them we were taking these pictures for Kassie.
Then I gave the camera to Colby.
My life. They constantly amaze me. This picture was Colby's idea.
