Elijah's Buddy

This past Friday we were happy to get a call from a friend from church. Joanne asked if she and her little boy Will could come visit that afternoon. We were happy to say yes! We planned to take the boys to the park if it wasn't raining.

Click here to see their last visit photos from October. It was pouring down rain that day!

When Elijah heard Will was coming, his bed room window became his look out point...

Thankfully it wasn't raining when they got here even though the sky was heavy with gloomy clouds. So we bundled up and headed down to the park.

Joanne was telling me how hard it is to get a picture of Will smiling. He always turns away and so I made it my mission that afternoon to get a picture of his adorable smile!

She was right! Even with my fast camera i still ended up with more pictures of the back of his head than anything else!

The boys had a great time running around together.

But unfortunately it started to rain and we had to go home.

When we got home we drank hot tea and milk and ate chocolate chip cookies. The boys played with balloons and finally we caught this...

Mission Accomplished!

I remember taking Anthony to the park with his friend Brydan at that age. I'm so glad you were able to capture Will's smile -- it's a great smile.
