Small Pleasures

The kids and I walk just about every day now. I try to take my camera with me most of the time. Mark has it all figured out. Mommy likes flowers and rocks. Oh, and cool looking rusty things. He points out every single flowers and every single rock on our walk. Take a picture of that flower, Mommy. There's a neat rock over here. He and Anna wait patiently while their mother crawls around on her hands and knees on the sidewalk. I have to wonder what the other passersby are thinking. Two kids in stroller, woman crawling around looking at the ground. Maybe she's drunk. Or she lost her diamond tiara. But probably it's drunkness.
I happen to know a special Grandma is bringing a camera for big Mark for his Birthday. Me thinks he is going to like it.

I think it's so fun to walk around the city and take pictures with the kiddos. They love to help out Mommy by finding things to snap:)

What a pretty picture! I would love to be driving along and see a Mommy crawling around on the ground with her little one's smiling in joy! Priceless.

My youngest loved giving me rocks, and sticks, and a leaf, anything was cause of oohhhs and ahhhss. Enjoy ever second.

That is a great shot. So that is something I get to look forward to, my boys telling me things to take pics of.

I'm the same way but I figured the correct adjective was 'crazy'...didn't even think of drunk. That might be more fun. ;)

We got C one of those FP kid cameras a few years ago...just be prepared to have a camera & flash in your face every 5 minutes. lol She still loves that thing.

Well you would certainly never catch me crawling around on the ground to take pictures!

Phee loves to take pictures with my camera, she holds it up to her eyes and pushes the button, but she usually gets pics of legs and feet.
