Steve has a camera that he uses almost exclusively for his job, but every now and again it will be put to work snapping random moments in our lives. I rarely look at the images and usually forget about them, but took a couple minutes to download them this morning and here’s what I found:
A pizza party at the beach with Nana. I love how Karenna is right in there, ramming her face full of carby goodness.
Me and Avelyn. Notice her puffy, post-cry eyes. They’ve looked like this for 80% of the summer. Something tragic is always happening for her: her pajamas don’t match, someone opens the coffee shop door before she gets to it, she stubs her toe on a blade of grass. My patience level is at a negative 12.
Aw, what a cute photo of Abby and Avelyn. This was on day two of their visit, when they still liked each other.
This photo was also taken when Jen and her girls were here. I believe this was Avelyn’s morning pep talk for the kids and she was overheard saying, “Alright, ladies! Big plans today! We are going to destroy our mothers’ wills to live. Prepare your strategies accordingly. And….GO!” They were startlingly effective and neither Jen nor I have fully recovered from our “vacation”.
Oh, and thank you all for your kind comments and supportive feedback on my last post. You guys are great and even though I (honestly!) wasn’t fishing for compliments, you took my (truly imaginary, I swear!) bait and made me feel so good. Much appreciated.
Bon weekend, tout le monde!
