thursday love (on friday)

I wanted to get on board with this inspiration and I felt like these pictures that I took yesterday captured a little bit of the kind of "love" that this young child often portrays towards certain toys and objects. Putting his whole self into an obsession du jour. The past few days...after having watched the movie "Cars" last month, and after he and Journey received a free box FULL of matchbox cars from complete strangers...have been somewhat arranged around his new fascination with these gadgets. He mostly likes to line them up and have races with just a few of his favorites. And, wherever we go, you will most likely see one in each of his hands...holding and playing and making wonderfully convincing "revving the engine" noises.

oh the beloved matchbox car...they are so wonderful, I can always count on them to keep my babes occupied for a few minutes to load the dishwasher, put some laundry away or just go to the bathroom alone :)
