We went to the Lifeline family reunion yesterday at Veteran’s Park.
And I brought my camera along.
But, let’s just say, I ended up doing a whole lot more talking than picture taking. And I came home without a single shot.
I was standing in the kitchen watching the girls furiously coloring the cup inserts they got from the festivities, and listening to them chat about their drawings, the colors they were choosing and discussing their appreciation for the fine-tipped markers we have at home versus the broad-tipped ones at the reunion and how these drawings were far superior to those they’d completed earlier in the day.
And I grabbed my camera, which hadn’t even been put up from the morning’s outing, and just started clicking. Gummy bears in the cheeks and all.
And I realized, it’s been a long time since I’ve just taken some spontaneous pictures with anything other than my iPhone.
The girls barely noticed me, looking up just long enough for me to actually catch their expressions.
Even Tallula was coloring furiously. Except with crayons instead of markers.
It’s moments like this that I want to capture more of. My kids just doing what my kids love to do.
Just being sisters.
