Here's a picture of Hazel under the same tree two years ago (just after moving into our house). She was a little less demanding back then, but not nearly so creative. Most of what she wants to do out in nature (when she's not obsessed with picking up trash) is pretend that she is various princesses and that different trees are her castle. It was on this day in the Cemetery that she met her new imaginary friend "Lola." Lola is pretty handy to have around because she is ALWAYS willing to play pretend with Hazel.
This is Charlie's friend Saul. They mostly liked crunching through the leaves and playing with sticks and looking in the big tin trash can.
Saul and Heidi. Heidi used to live on our street right before we moved in, so she shares my love for our cemetery.
