Forgot to tell you all something really important....
As I have talked you into taking lots of photos, I forgot to mention two things that I realized are VERY important this weekend.....
1) Make sure you are in some of the photos. That is so important for your family. I know it is HARD to give away the camera, but please try to do that once in a while so your kids can see photos of YOU. (Years ago, I am embarrassed to tell you, Kalli was looking at some pages I had made. She said "Mom, how come you never get to go anywhere with us?" And I told her I went everywhere with them and she said, "Then how come you are not in any of the photos?" Broke my heart - do not make that same mistake.) I even had Neil take a couple photos of me and the kids when I was IN MY BATHING SUIT! I am not kidding. I mean, like any overweight mommy I used the kids to hide most of my body, but my head is IN THOSE PHOTOS I am happy to say. I am even going to post one to prove it to you!! :)
2) Put down the camera, and have some FUN, too. Do not just be the family documentor - be part of the fun, too. At the waterpark this weekend, Kalli said, "Mom, please put down the camera and play in the water." That kid always knows how to kick me where it hurts my heart!! She is RIGHT - please put down the camera and enjoy the moments, too.
OK, off my soap box, and here are a few fun photos from our weekend.
