I watched my son play. I took lots of pictures. And I caught a glimpse of all things he is and is becoming.

A budding explorer. Brave, but tentative. Independent, yet looking for reassurance. On his way to adventures of his own.

Imaginative. A cowboys in his own frog rodeo one minute, a jet pilot the next, even an astronaut shooting to the moon on his rocket.

And silly. Always goofy. Always crazy. Always ready to make me laugh, if I would just lighten up a bit every once in a while.

What a gift to see your child in a new light at such an everyday place.

We love you Big J!

(Even when you end our park visit with this.)
