Rachel and Omi (her Grandma). :)

Omi always takes the kids on an outdoor adventure...even in the winter when I'm too chicken because of the cold.

She's not afraid to pick up bugs and can regularly be found showing the kids worms, locusts, spiders, and caterpillars.  I'm too chicken to touch anything crawly.

She's a wonderful part of our lives and this picture will happily remind us all of our outdoor adventures with Omi.

So precious! I can feel the softness of the caterpillar as well as the gentleness of the well loved hands. Great capture!
