Photo Sharing: Simplicty At It's Best

"Let's eat outside!" The kids pleaded. I sighed wanting to resist. Then I thought, why? Why am I resisting? Just so I can be in control and say no? Just because I want to be a Scrooge? "Okay", I agreed. I finished preparing our lunch and we headed outside. The sun beat is warm rays on the glass top table. I closed my eyes and enjoyed the warmth around me.
"It's too hot" Lucas complained.
"It's not hot, it's only in the 70's", I replied.
"It's still too hot!"
"Should we go back in?" I questioned, not wanting to lose my spot in the warmth.
"NO!"

So instead a compromise was made. Lucas and Alex carried their plates to the bench in the shade. I remained at the table and enjoyed the sunshine. I heard their voices talking kindly to each other and looked over and saw this...
that is when the photographer in me
knew I couldn't miss this moment.
It really is the little moments,
the little times of saying yes that make it all worth it.

  11. I admire so much that you stopped yourself from saying no just because it was your immediate reaction. Picnics in the family room floor are HEAVEN to my kids and I always regret that I don't let them more. Not sure why when I really think aobut it . . . Super cute photos. I think your kiddos are darling!

  12. Cute pictures! Seth wanted to eat outside today. However its about thirty degrees so I declined to join him but bundled him up and sent him outside with his snack. He was a happy camper in his tree house and I was nice and warm inside.
