Baby Animals and Tender Spirits

The wonders of Spring... flowers, warm weather, pasty skin... and baby animals!! 

Erin and I go to Heritage Park every year (even though we're unsure why) and we always have such a great time! We ride the trains, pet baby animals, picnic and watch our kiddos play together without a care in the world. 

It's a delight to savor these sweet and simple moments. I was able to catch a few pics of Lucas coo'ing at the baby animals and it melted my spirit. As he grows into a little boy, I'm finding his heart to be SO soft and tender toward little things... babies, kittens, puppies...bugs, worms and birds...pretty much anything small. 

Sometimes the simplest things are the moments in which we see our little ones blossoming into the sweet spirits we've always dreamed them to be. I never imagined Lucas would be so tender toward little animals, and yet here we are.


The funniest thing about this photo is... Lucas sat down, but the baby goat was trying to eat his shorts, so Lucas was only sitting on one cheek to try and avoid having his shorts be a part of snack time. He was very concerned.
