Thank You

(One of my favorite photos from last week)

Soon after Mark and I moved to Florida, my Mom and Abby called and asked if they could visit us in February. Of course we said yes, and last week they flew into Orlando for their first ever visit to the Sunshine state.

We were busy during their four day stay: going to the beach, the zoo, and traveling up to Port Canaveral for the Discovery shuttle launch.

I have 600+ photos to edit from their stay, but this one is very special to me. Evan is going to be 5 next month, and I am so thankful Abby snapped this picture of me and my first born.

Mark and I were reflecting on our five years as parents just last night, and we came to a consensus: we have darn cute kids. But as I look through my photos, I don't have many pictures of me and my kids. Mostly Mark, Evan, and Jack.

When my kids (and other family members) look through our scrapbooks I want them to see that I was a part of our kids' lives, not just behind the camera.

So one of my goals this year is to be in front of the camera as much as possible.

Thank you, Abby & Mom, for spending time with us. We love you :-)

Yes, it is a really, really lovely photo!

And a good goal to have as you document life - so often the Mum/photographer hardly gets in the photos. And yet, when she does, sometimes it's being taken by a 'non-photographer' who couldn't place you in a photo well if they tried! :) oh dear ... So your sister did a damn good job on this one ... so glad they came out to visit!
