Tea Parties and Picnics – Embrace the Camera

I embraced the camera twice this week, bad hair, sweat pants and all.  On Monday, Eva and I had a tea party.  She insisted we use the tiered serving platter.  Fudgeeos were on the menu.  We sipped hot chocolate and discussed her usual question: “So, how was your great day today?”

On Tuesday, while Eva was in school, the boys and I went out for a walk.  We’ve lived in our neighborhood for a whole year now and I’ve hardly explored any of the walking paths around here.  In the heat, I decided to explore the most uphill one, and just as we hit the incline, Ezra decided he wanted a ride in the stroller with Isaac!  Phew.  I was so happy when we finally reached the top of hill!  After a stop at the park and walking home, I decided to have a picnic with the boys in the shady back yard.  Peanut butter sandwiches, baby carrots, grapes and bananas were on the menu — I love that Ezra actually eats healthy food (unlike a certain daughter of mine, what am I going to do with her!?).




I’m embracing the camera because I want my kids to see me in our family photos when they are grown and looking back on their childhood.
