My talented friend from college, Alexa Seidl MacKinnon Photography, took our family photos at Volunteer Park on a picture-perfect autumn day. Being a year and a half and constantly on the go, we spent the morning chasing Carter across the park. He is obsessed with balls of any type and insisted on inserting himself into an ongoing soccer game. Stealing the ball was much more entertaining to him than posing with Mom & Dad! Thanks, Lex – looking back on the pic of him waving with the stolen ball fills me with his carefree joy every time I look at it.
