If you're a faithful reader, you know that I have this thing I like to do. I like to take photos of Dylan in the same spot, year after year, and see how much he changes. Each time I do it, I get all nostalgic and sappy, so I'm not sure why I keep doing it. I guess I enjoy torturing myself?
There is this farm that I've been going to since I was a kid. I don't know what it is about this farm, but I swear I get better pictures there than just about anywhere else. The first time we went that Dylan could walk, I took this shot...

When I was a kid, I had to walk along the "balance beam" each time I went to the farm. Here's my kid... a chip off the old block...
There is this beat up shed on the property that serves as the perfect backdrop, year after precious year...
Hope you enjoyed that walk down memory lane as much as I did! (SOB!)
