EVENING SHADOWS

Most nights end with us taking a long walk around the neighborhood. There is a "sprayground" up the street from us, so Max is always ready to run around the sprinklers until sundown. 

I love how he always has to bring at least one vehicle along. Lately, Lightning McQueen has been his constant companion. He even goes to bed with him; which, in turn, usually ends up with a midnight call of "where's Lightniiiiing?". One of us rushes in, bleary-eyed with only the light from our phones to rescue Lightning...who is typically wedged between the mattress and crib. He just loves that thing so dang much...who are we to separate them?! I know we'll look back on these moments and laugh at how desperate a situation a little toy car created.
