a detour on our walks

There is a gate leading to a small field close to our house. We took family pictures there a few years ago, when we were waiting for our youngest to come home:


As we pass by on walks, the open gate beckons my oldest daughter to come explore. I’ve snapped a few shots with my phone recently and keep thinking, “I need to bring my big camera on a walk.” So, I did. Granted the walk is more like a few steps out the front door.

And then they were done and scooted away. Well, one scooted and the other ran screaming behind because she wanted the scooter.
