sunday

The boys and I went to "Bach and breakfast" in the park on Sunday morning. As Charlie and I hung out listening, Andrew played with my camera.
Life through Andrew's eyes:





I love this one.
I giggled when I downloaded these. It's pretty clear this boy has one thought on his mind these days.

a canine friend, of course! Are you giving in?

Renee said...

Aw, that's sweet. Is his hint working?

Chris said...

Does he want a dog? Or does he have a dog? You can tell he loves dogs.

Hadley Gets Crafty said...

So cute!

I see you've got Cosy's book in your basket. I love the book, and I love your basket! What a wonderful day.

Jodi said...

What a hoot! I'm often on dog patrol, too. :)

fromallstitchedup said...

Totally clear. I have to say my girls are quite adorable. I vote for a cockapoo - small, managable but fiesty enough to give Andrew a run for his money. They are by no means boring lap dogs.

L~ said...

that's sweet! get him a dog, eh?!

Pam said...

great! I love kids' perspective. It's so fun to see what my son takes pictures of -- toys, himself, the dogs.

Cara said...

Oh, yes, that boy needs a dog.

Sarah Jackson said...

you know he wants a dog - you've said so yourself. :) maybe it's time.

Yarn It said...

That is so cute he took so many pictures of dogs! Is he gonna get one???

MadMad said...

Too funny! (And I loved the one you loved, too!) As for the dog... let me direct you to several of my dog-related posts before you commit....

Nantucket Dreams said...

Frogdancer said...

Sarah said...

Okay, I love the puppy pictures, way too cute. But what I need to know is where did you get that lovely quilt or pattern for it. I need one, want one and would love to make one.

PS Word Verification: flindia, I thought it was funny.

Sarah said...

OOooo, and I can recommend a Basset Hound, just watch out that body length get them into trouble even though the feet arent far from the ground, and that nose loves to sniff.

Kristyn Knits said...

looks like that boy wants a dog!
mom, can you help a boy out?
love the first photo!
just what I would expect, a magazine worthy photo from a friend.

The WoodLand School said...

This is the cutest photo shoot ever! I just love seeing what kids focus on when they're behind the lens. Thanks for sharing :-)

villapeikko said...

Adorable pics! You know, it's just the same here. Our kids want a dog and most of the photos my first born takes, are about dogs :)

Olya said...

hehe... how can you not get a dog after such 'photoshoot'? :)

on a side note, I would really love to know what jeans you(?) are wearing in the first photo. I have a weak spot for clothes with embroidery and that design would be just perfect for me.

Lyn said...

Hilarous post!!

julesinseach said...

I think we are gonig to have to get a dog one of these days... Eben is obsessed with petting every dog that we come upon while walking around the lake.

I love the quilt, it looks like a really nice relaxing day for all.

peaknits said...

How cute! So?

Jane said...

What a wonderful Sunday morning! I always like the perspective that my boys have with their photography.

stitching under oaks said...

so fun! I think I know what's going to be at the top of his Christmas list! Glad you're having a fun summer. Sounds like a great park program you've got near you.

meegiemoo said...

Love the dog fixation. =) In a few years, those pictures might be cute girls.

Larissa said...

thanks for sharing these!
and go for it - you'll enjoy having a dog just as much (if not more than) the kiddos will. And if you get an adult dog from the humane society you won't have to deal with the housebreaking or constant chewing. we absolutely adore our two mutts. But I wish we had your park nearby!

pricklypearbloom said...

hahahahahahaha!

funny, you and I posted about picnicing at a concert in a park (sort of) today!

Sandy said...

adorable! seriously, adorable.

Celestial said...

Love that top shot. And so many doggy butts in one place.

Pam said...

Don't you love downloading pictures taken by children. It gives us glimpses at their loves, dreams and desires.

Jessica said...

Bach and breakfast sounds like the perfect perfect pair. So will a dog join in on the fun?

katieleigh said...

So sweet! Though I think the first photo - the non-canine one - is my fave.

Philigry said...

i love the picture of the golden. if you get a dog, you must get a golden!

Seanna Lea said...

That's pretty much life through my eyes as well. I'm always looking out for dogs as I walk and run around town. I just keep telling myself, soon! soon!

APA said...

Before I read your very last sentences, I was thinking the exact same thing. Mom, this boy seriously wants a puppy!

The pictures are fantastic. I absolutely love how chilled and comfie you and your eldest are. And I love Andrew's perspective. Sometimes we're too busy looking up, in dreams and to a future, to see the small details right there within arm's reach. Awesome!

The Wooly Wumpus said...

Sometimes a message is too clear to be ignored :) Love your quilt!

Katie said...

Get that boy a dog! :-)

Geek Knitter said...

Puppy Puppy Puppy!

Alicia A. said...

somebody buy that boy a puppy.

amywb said...

very funny! I posted something similar yesterday: the photos I found on my camera that my 5 year old took - also dogs but the same stuffed one over and over. something about dogs and boys with cameras this week!

lucky knitter said...

I love seeing Sunday morning through Andrew's eyes! :)

Caffeine Girl said...

Hey, do you live in Pittsburgh, PA? I lived there in the mid-1980s and loved it. I am so jealous!

Hilary said...

How cool to see things from your son's perspective! The first picture is wonderful...it could be professional!

LaughingFamily said...

hmmm...what could possibly be on his mind? Adorable photos!

Kate said...

So, when are you getting the dog?

iknitipurl said...

Uh oh, will you guys be getting a dog? Or is he just really hopeful?!

Knitterella said...

Question… how can you keep that great figure when you eat so many great cookies?! ; )

Meggie said...

Karen said...

LOVE your quilt. You're a good mommy, letting him play with your camera.

Poshyarns said...

Truskaweczka said...

My sunday was perfect - like Yours.
Love Your blog!

Ivy9 said...

I just found your blog and have been enjoying reading through some of your past entries. The combination of knitting, cookies, and family life seems to me like the summation of the word "home". So warm and comforting, both reminding me of the past and inspiring thoughts for the future at the same time.

And you and your family always look wonderful in your knit garments!

So... any word on getting a dog?

julie green said...

That's hilarious, Leslie. I have to say, though, I really love the first shot even if it is dogless.

Knit Sew City Girl said...

You boy is such a great photographer! I really like his photos. The dog in the last photo is so sweet.

KnitPastis said...

Could that be a little puppy he's wanting?LOL He takes some pretty darn good photos! Bach and Breakfast sounds so awesome! Love that kind of stuff.xoxo

Alisha said...
