WW: OPPD Arboretum {Linky}

The OPPD Arboretum is really close by us, and free. I never realized how pretty it is. I went to take photos of my sister's family. While we wait a few minutes for them to get there I took a few photos of my own boys.

The boys were running EVERYWHERE. I was running after them, and the whole sole of one of my boots fell off! I had those boots since 1997. It's not a horrible loss. It just made it harder to chase after my kids! Isaak in particular would not allow me to take photos of him. Especially when their cousins met up with us, there was no hope in getting photos. Most of these are of Mica.

That's too bad about the boots! I have some that are about that old too that I would hate to part with! Great shots of Mica!

My youngest runs away a lot when I am trying to take pictures, too. It drives me nuts.

You did get some great pics! I lost a heel on a boot once while traveling. And my daughter lost the sole of her Hello Kitty tennies in Chicago. I guess we only 'break' our shoes when we're not close to home, lol
