It started with a lovely picnic on what felt like the first day of summer. Now that their youngest daughter, Lara had entered the world, it was beautiful to see them out as a foursome. Mum and Lara were napping on the picnic blanket and Dad was trying to get the kite to fly for Mia, but the weather was too good.
The family's dear friends and their little boy, Garrett, joined us. The two families met at the local NCT class, and as their children grew, so did their friendship. Sadly, this day was the day they had to say goodbye. Garrett's father is in the US military and had been posted back across the Atlantic Ocean. The children didn't understand and were playing happily. Suddenly, Mia and Garrett decided to strip naked, all bar their shoes. It was hilarious to see them streaking across the nature reserve but the image of them sitting on the bench became a very poignant image of their innocence and friendship.
