Hunting Conkers

It's been a while since I posted a Tom pic. This was taken a couple of weekends ago when we went hunting for conkers.

What a great father/son picture! He looks happy and so do you! Thanks for sharing . . .it's always nice to know what people look like after "hearing" about them so much!

How ADORABLE!!!! Yeah, you're getting behind in the Tom picture department. That adorable little fella has my heart, you know!!
And, not to be dense, but what's a conker?

Hi guys - you can imagine how much holding down and attempts it took to get this picture. He's a busy boy now...

As for conkers - they're the seeds of the Horse Chestnut tree. Does that help? Here's a primer -

Oh, that link totally helped! Thanks!
My mother used to have a sweet chustnut tree...I wish I had one, except that I hate the prickly burrs that they grow in...sweet chestnuts are delicious.
And I can imagine how hard it must have been to get that kids were little whirling dervishes at that age! :)

What a darling photograph!

I can see quite clearly where Tom gets the character.
