We took my son to Fort Rickey for the first time today! It is a petting zoo that my mom used to take me to when I was little. My mom wanted to do something special as a family to celebrate her birthday, and I suggested Fort Rickey. I wanted my mom to be with us the first time we went because it was such a special treat for me when I was young.
I dug out the old photo albums and found a bunch of photos we took there on two separate trips. Once when I was Oliver's age and once when I was about five years old. Inspiration struck as I flipped through the pages. How fun would it be to try to recreate these photos with Oliver! I took out my favorites and put them in a plastic baggie, charged my camera, agonized over outfits, and got my mom and husband on board (well, mostly). Things didn't go quite as planned, but it was a blast trying!
The top image is from when I was just about two or three years old. I'm actually standing behind my mom here. I have no clue who that cute little boy is! The building in the background is still there and hasn't changed a bit.
