The Wilson Family - Enchanted

"Do princesses live in this forest?" 
It came before hello.


'Well of coarse', I replied. 
Mom looked over her shoulder...'I told her we were visiting an enchanted forest today.'

Imagination...
it's quite possibly one of my favorite things in the world, and they had it. 

I think Einstein said it best, when he said, 
"Imagination is everything. It is the preview to life's coming attractions."

And so began our adventure within the winding paths of Mill Pond that were sprinkled with the richness of autumn leaves, beautiful bridges, picturesque landscape...and one crazy lady... 

Mr. and Mrs. Wilson's little man...


Introducing the adorable Ms. "V"...



Some candid snuggles...


and tender moments...


The scenery behind the kids in the next set of pictures was beautiful. 
It was the type of imagery that you wanted to jump right into. 


This was what was behind the children in the shot above. 
We were sitting on a bridge over looking it.


Mom + Dad

If this isn't what childhood is all about, I'm not sure what is...


I'm feelin' a little J. Crew in this next one...





Gymboree - cream, textured, yummy, sweater dress?! 
Yes, please!


So in an enchanted forest, there are all types of fun character's. 
Enter: Crazy Lady (and nooo it wasn't  me)


A rough, loud voice yelled out 'what's his name'?
We all turned and were greeted by the looks of a homeless woman. 


I'm not going to sugar coat it..we were all a little nervous by her abrupt behavior. 
I'm not even sure if we answered her or she just waited around to hear.


But all of a sudden this woman became the court jester, 
trying to get the serious boy to smile.
It worked, but not just with him, with all of us!



Below is my 'just for me shot', and I guess for a few of my loyal readers that mentioned 
you missed it in the last few posts...
(thank you for those little notes btw to let me know it's something you like : )
The 'out of the box shot'.



My mantra:
"Whatever you think about you bring about..." 
so imagine little 'V's surprise when we were coming around the last turn heading out of the forest 
and came face to face with a beautiful princess (bride) at the end of our trail. 

Dreams do come true for those of us who believe...

Much thanks to the Wilson family for being fun, happy, playful and having a fabulous imagination. 
It made my day!

Ohh, and crazy lady - if you should ever come across this blog, thank you. 
Thank you for being just who you are. 
I was embarrassed that I thought of you as 'crazy' at first and not just a 'nice and friendly' lady.

Please don't take offense to the word 'crazy' either.
 I actually like it. 
And after all, don't we all have a little crazy in us? 
Funny though,  none of us are as brave as you to ever show it. 

You stopped, you helped, and you gave us all a chuckle.
I'm so grateful for you for taking a moment to be a part of our adventure.
Hey, and if you're interested, I have a position open for an assistant!
