Here we are on the first day Ragnar arrived at Ao4 Headquarters:
|"Hey, bro. How's it going?"|
"Doing great, Mags!"
I know. We look like we've always known each other, don't we?
Here we are, the next day, on our first long walk together:
|"Isn't this great, Ragnar? We'll do this every day, weather permitting!"|
"This is great fun ... but I thought Kansas was supposed to be flat!"
It's a common misconception. When the heat breaks, we'll take Ragnar to the flatter part of the state!
Here we are on that same walk -- his first time down Hudson Trail!
|Ragnar and me|
And a day or two later, with his first time at the Kansas Ocean:
If you look closely at the little peninsula, you can see we're being watched by a Great Blue Heron.
We even stopped to pose that day:
"Yeah. Hey, Mom!"
I normally wouldn't do that without treats, but I was just so happy I couldn't help it. Besides, I was tired.
And lastly, here's a scenic shot, as we stopped beside a field full of Black-Eyed Susans:
|"Hey, Maggie. Aren't you going to look at Mom?"|
He's still learning!
Anyway, we still have some catching up to do, photo-wise (Mom's been crazier than normal taking pictures!), but at least that's a start!
Happy Friday -- have a great weekend!
