Weekly Photography Challenge: Partners

Luckily the “partners” Weekly Photography Challenge came up while I was visiting Canberra with Alex – staying at his sister’s and playing with his niece. They formed a productive partnership with Legos and trains.

Alex was born when Zoe was four (and a quarter), and as far as she was concerned, he was her baby, and I was just the surrogate and nanny. Now they are both adults, and Zoe has a child of her own, making Alex a proud Uncle. Juniper is not yet three, so I was very impressed with her imagination and dexterity using the Lego blocks. Unfortunately she was equally good at demolishing her partners creations! The house with eyes is a collaboration, though – Alex made the house, she added all the eyes.

 

We live a whole days travel away from them, so visits are infrequent, but as lengthy as we can wangle. On the last of our six days, a heavy-eyed Juniper snuggled on the couch with Uncle Alex watching Thomas videos, and was soon sound asleep…13555601_10153566533747466_24239339_o

I snapped Zoe taking photos of the pair on the couch, just before she scooped her up, and took her to bed. She was still sound asleep when we left next morning at sunrise…
