My kids and I have taken photos every year at the same Walnut Creek location for almost ten years. When we started, we called our spot “the meadow.” Recently, “our meadow” has been developed and named “The Orchards.”
We visited our meadow again last weekend after my son’s baseball game. It was the first day of the “time change,” which gave us an extra hour of sunlight. The 2017 Annual Farley Family Photos.
My kids were not happy with the change.They missed the open space. They felt that something special had been taken, but they made it work.
Watching my son, reminded me of this picture from 2010. Mason was about the same age as the boy he met last weekend.
Even though my daughter was sad about the changes, I was proud that she noticed some of the new trees had not been planted correctly. Our new meadow may be called an “orchard,” but a few trees do not make it so.
Despite the changes, we captured some decent pictures. The Orchards is better now than it was in 2015. We probably would have enjoyed the new shopping center if we had not known it as a meadow.
