Four Kids on the Prairie

Yesterday we took family pictures at a nearby nature park that has lovely tall prairie grass. Here are individual shots of each of our children. We were trying to catch the golden evening light and it ended up being a bit too strong, but we thought their expressions were just perfect.

Bean, age 7

Fish, age 5

Roo, age 2 1/2

and an 8 1/2 month old Rabbit

(The Rabbit is holding an "Osage Orange," sometimes called a "hedge apple." They are green and lumpy and funky-looking and they fall out of prairie trees in the fall. Folklore has it that they repel insects. I think they are very amusing.)
