Way Back When-esday: All Creatures Great and Small


Dateline: October 2007
Twins' Age: 6 Years Old

I'm unsure what warms my heart most about these pictures: the sunlight dappling though the leaves, beloved Reverend Rick's tender touch upon each twin's Betta-bearing cup amidst the largely dog and cat dominated crowd, each child's sincerity and slightly bowed head, or maybe it's simply that Sarah and Darren both thought capes the appropriate attire for the annual "Blessing of the Animals." No matter the reason, when the folder with these images was opened, this Wednesday's choice was made.

What memorable image(s) makes your mid-week wonderful? Dive into those digital photos or scan a scrapbook find and play along with Way Back When-esday. Be sure and link back to participate in the web-wide reverie...and leave a comment when you do!

A person would have to have a heart of stone not to LOVE those pics.
So innocent.

Great photos! We had our dog blessed last year, it was the first time everyone in our Church really saw Aaron and Jill.

You can tell that the reverend is a kind man from the position of his body. Love the capes!

I was too busy smiling at your priest, and totally missed the capes! So sweet of the kids to bring the fish!
