With all the people that would normally be part of Mother's Day celebrations out of town, I had to settle for a phone call to my Mother and my daughter instead.grandkitties sent me a nice card though.
With Jeff and Rachel vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, we needed to visit and feed the in-town grands anyway, so I got a picture with them.
Cheeto is all grown up now.
How time flies...
Our next door neighbor dropped by with her little ones.
Tiggie and the Toddler played a slow game of "Follow the Patio Lion".
Tigs used to play this game with the toddler next door in Houston. Funny how he remembered how the game was played: just amble along, keeping a safe distance from the kid at all time. When the toddler stopped, so did Tigs.
Clearly he enjoys studying the little one as much as the little one enjoys studying him.
(Hart just split the scene as fast as possible...a grey blur was all that was to be seen of him!)
Later I headed back to Red Butte with the neighbor and her two little ones.
The oldest girl is 16 months old, the baby is seven weeks.
I had never attempted to photograph little children in motion before.
About seventy pictures were taken; most were pretty good, about ten were great, and two were of the caliber that I strive to obtain consistently.
No grandchildren that come without fur and paws in my future for now; I still have plenty of time to hone my photographic skills for when the day eventually comes.
Meanwhile, it was a blast to practice and pretend with a behatted borrowed wee one on Mothers Day 2010.
