Out for a Walk

Awhile back, all of us and Ryan and Ashley and the girls went on an enjoyable outing together (during which, none of us thought to take photos!) . . . right before packing up and heading home, though, everyone was gathered around the vehicles talking and energetic little Adelyn and I decided to go for a walk . . . meanwhile, Mom snapped these photos of us . . .

Excitedly exploring . . . and learning that the rocks and leaves she was 
fascinated by, do not belong in her mouth!

Learning how to walk on long grass . . . easier said than done sometimes :)

I love being an aunt!


  1. :-) I think you're a pretty good aunt ~ from the look on Adelyn's face, I think she loves being with her Aunt Sarah.
    Another of my favorite hymns below. :-)

  2. Aww...such nice pictures! Thanks for sharing, Sarah! Adelyn is so cute - how old is she now?

    Sorry I haven't commented in a while :( I do enjoy reading all your posts though!!

    Blessings :)

  3. Oh, how sweet! She is too adorable! Simple gifts such as walks with loved ones are to be cherished... ;)


  4. Those curls are so sweet!
    I'm sure she equally loves being your niece.

  5. What a precious and cute little niece you have! It is special to get a glimpse into all the fun times you have with your nieces through pictures!

    I hope you are staying warm these days :). It had felt like fall here until today. We even got our first tiny bit of snow. None stuck to the ground, but my siblings were excited that it was snowing!

  6. Your neice is the cutest little girl!!! I think I would be hugging her all the time. I remember when Ashley was courted by your brother Ryan~I think he met Ashley through you~and ofcourse our Lord put them together. Now they have been blessed with 2 beautiful children!! And blessed with 2 kind and fun Aunts!! God bless you, Rose

  7. ~ Mrs. Anne . . . you are so sweet! Thank you!

    ~ Bethany . . . you’re welcome! And thank you for your comment! It was so nice to hear from you again. :) I hope that you and your family are well! Adelyn is one and a half now . . . . growing up so fast!

    ~ Shannon . . . they are indeed gifts to be cherished! And I would agree - she is rather adorable. :)

    ~ Elizabethd . . . they are! Aww . . . you’re sweet. :)

    ~ Anna . . . I would wholeheartedly agree! And I’m glad that you enjoyed the photos. :) We’re managing to stay warm most of the time! It’s been cold here with a stretch of days that have been cloudy and haven’t even gotten above freezing. The mid to upper 30’s in the forecast look wonderful! :) We got some snow here, too, but it wasn’t a pretty one . . . only about an inch and then a lot of it turned to ice after it fell. I’m sure this winter will seem a little different after your ones in Vermont! Glad you got to enjoy at least some snow already!

    ~ Rose . . . it was so nice to hear from you again! And yes, she is very huggable. :) It doesn’t seem that long ago when Ryan and Ashley were courting, and now look where they are! The Lord has so richly blessed. We all have so much to be thankful for!

  8. Adelyn is so cute!! Love her little curls and chubby legs - too precious! :)


Thanks so much for your comment! Each one is read and enjoyed. :)
