I was just looking through some old pictures, and found this one. When we were at the beach this summer, I had tried not to wreck every moment by trying to get the perfect photo, so I bribed everyone with the promise of one evening, one hour of me being the Mommy who screams... "look over here, smile, move your arm, open your eyes!!"
I was bummed when I first took this picture, the sun was setting the lighting was perfect, beautiful backdrop, but my littlest subject was just not having it. Now I love it, maybe not hang over the fireplace worthy, but this is what it really looks like to be one of our kids! Can you tell everyone is trying to convince Mina to turn around and sit with them, because the sooner she cooperates the sooner Mommy will be done.
