These pictures were taken on a very rare afternoon when Ian and Mommy were the only ones at home. Despite the absence of his usual partner in crime (aka, brother Alec) Ian entertained himself just fine with a bucket, a shovel, and a whole swimming pool full of water in which to splash about!
It was fun listening to him babble as he pulled his sister's boogie board loaded with goodies to and fro in the pool. Ian is such a bundle of energy that it is difficult for him to stay in one place for long. But happily he was content for quite awhile on this day! I snapped these pictures to remember his joy - and that beautiful smile.
