Radio Flyer Wagon

After 5 days of being stuck inside, sick of being sick with a heavy cold, I finally ventured out today, first to school, then with the boys to the patch of nature that makes an appearance at this time of year in our LA neighbourhood. Jason's been away all week and Callum's demanding tantrums are tough when I'm attending to Reu's medical needs. I just have to take lots of deep breaths (yet not easy with a stuffy nose) and carry on with the task at hand. The retro Radio Flyer Wagon is an absolute delight, especially as it came fully assembled and brand new, a bargain, from Craigslist (aka Want Ads). I found it almost impossible to choose a favourite pic here, but I implore you to just watch the very quick slide show with the song "You've got a friend in me" (Toy Story) in your head. See what I mean? I wanted this to capture a bit of American Retro, nostalgia, the innocence of youth, the joy for the coming Spring, but mostly the absolute love between my boys. Reuben is Mr Cool with the camera and a natural with his languid devil-may-care poses. How lucky am I!

Someone's getting nifty with Photoshop! Fabulous, and reminds me of the American Dream circa 1950.

Lovely to see the boys playing happily away. Spring is just around the corner here and things are budding from the ground, demanding attention. It's going to be a busy time ahead, what with the kitchen refurb and allotment to be getting on with, but Oh, when it's all finished!
