Happy Mother's Day!

For Mother's Day, I requested a picnic lunch. We found a beautiful tree on the Mall right next to the Capitol. Under the trees the weather was perfection. We ate our lunch, played ball and talked. Heaven. I had one goal for the day .....actually I had two goals for the day... 1) try to relax and not rush, hurry or worry and 2) of course had to do with photography....GET IN THE PHOTO....

My inital reaction when reviewing the lot was, how do I look? But, when I edited them tonight, they all just made me smile and made me so happy, so so so happy. Even if I didnt look good, my children were so happy, we were happy together and this makes me happy. THIS is the point of being in the photo, my friends! I understand it now! Not just to say, oh, look here we were here, blah blah.... But, to see this side of it, to capture that happiness together. Capture and keep those memories and those feelings forever and ever and hold them near and dear.
