Behind on blogging, so I’m posting a few photos to catch up.
Here’s a photo from our spring break “staycation”.
Honestly, it is one of my favorite family photos ever because it is completely unstaged.
The backstory: On a random Saturday afternoon over spring break, we decided it would be fun to let the kids ride their bikes and scooters over to our community courts to play basketball and tennis. We saddled everybody up, slung the baby bjorn, tennis rackets, water bottles, and a bag full of tennis and basketballs over the stroller handles and headed out. En route, we paused at an intersection where a friend just happened to be driving by in her car with her husband and three kids. She leaned out the window and said, “y’all look like you’re headed out for a fun afternoon…let me take a picture of you with my cell phone so you can have a record of it!” She snapped the photo, and viola, an everyday moment captured.
(and unlike me, the person who lets photos languish on her cellphone forever, she was amazing and e-mailed it to me the next day…I know, she is incredible! She later told me that, as a mother, she knew exactly how much work had gone into getting everyone and all that gear organized and couldn’t resist letting me see, from a different perspective, how smiley we all were about our outing)
Don’t you just love pictures that capture those precious everyday moments? Just a Saturday afternoon, out for some good family fun.
