Sunrise Squirrel Distraction

First thing in the morning, we head to the yard for one important thing, but Landon forgot and he blames a sunrise squirrel distraction.

Headed to the yard and...oh, squirrel
Headed to the yard and…oh, squirrel

Landon is well-known for being easily distracted. He knows he is to do something important and then, well, he just forgets. In this case, all Boom Boom needed to do was go out to the yard and get important business done before coming back inside. But, well, squirrel.

Nothing could be more important than watching that squirrel.

By this point, everyone else has gone outside, completed their jobs, and returned inside. But Landon hasn’t made it more than a few steps in the yard. And he shows no sign of remembering why he is there. All he can say is… squirrel.

    Those are gorgeous photos of Landon with the sunlight dappled on him; even though he is distracted . . . or maybe meditatiing???

    Capturing Landon with the sunrise makes for a spectacular photo.
