the little girl who loved to sing

 

there once was a girl who loved to pick flowers…

she loved to wander the meadows and find lovely flowers. it made her very happy…

but as much as she loved picking flowers, there was one thing that she loved even more. that one thing was singing. she loved to sing more than anything else.

 

one day this little girls mom wanted to take some pictures of her in the beautiful meadows of the colorado mountains (aka outside of  grandma great’s cabin). she was very happy to be outside in the meadow full of flowers. her mom thought she could get some beautiful shots of the little girl as she picked flowers. the one thing, however, that the mom didn’t take into consideration was her love for singing. for as she was snapping her photos, the little girl began to sing…

and each time the mom asked her to stop singing for just a moment so she could get some “normal” pictures of the sweet little girl, she would get sad…

so, the mom decided to let her sing…

because that was when the little girl was most happy….

and when the little girl was happy….the mom was happy!

Oh my sweetness!! That was so delightful. It would only have been improved by a video with a singing girl in it but I'll take what I can get. What a wonderful tale of the unique sweetness of Kawena.

I really don't think she could get any cuter. What fun pics.

You are so clever with your posts. And little Kawena couldn't be cuter! I wish she could play with my little Rachel sometime - they seem to have very similar interests and personalities.

Funny how you have one idea in your head and then the kids kick it aside and come up with something better. These pictures will always make you smile not only because they are beautiful but because of the story behind them.

Very cute! I'd love an audio to go with it :)

The pictures are so beautiful and vivid I can almost hear her singing! What a wonderful way to capture her personality.
