This is MY family! Did you catch my last post about this project 52? If not, you can find it here. That post explains all about how this project came to be. And it’s been so neat capturing all these special moments with my family! We drove cross country this year (30 hours each way) to visit our extended families. As much as I tried to keep on top of things during the trip, I got behind and still haven’t quite caught up. Good thing I’m the total opposite of the “type A” personality. I’m having a great time doing what I can to document these days of childhood that seem so fleeting.
The prompts for these photos were: sunshine (which is perfect for playing in the water with your cousin), bedroom, and bedtime (our nightly dog-walking ritual). The photos above? The top photo was the prompt “Water” and was taken at Millennium Park in Chicago. Totally worth the trip when you have littles. The prompt for the other one was “nearby.” This was at a park near my parents house. Guess who we ran into while we were there? Our friends from Tennessee, who were also visiting family! Crazy, huh?
These next photos were what really held me back. I had such a hard time finding inspiration for these prompts! What were my assignments? Me and them, dirty (which shouldn’t have been difficult, but by some miracle it was), technology, and mine. While the “mine” photo may not seem like much, it’s really great when my husband finally pulls up to our home after work. Everyone goes out to great him while shouting “dad! daddy!” Obviously, this photo was on their run back up the hill, but I’m never quite fast enough to grab the camera when I see him pulling up. Does anyone else’s child have a minecraft addiction? My son has discovered pixel art on the YouTube Kids channel and has had so much fun creating things he thinks everyone in the family will enjoy.
The family table: perfect for carving pumpkins. Exterior of home (after a rainstorm is particularly fun at our house). The prompt for the last photo was “feet.” My fearless 3-year-old was happy as a clam with her nose pressed up against the glass way up at the top of the gateway arch in St. Louis. I can’t believe there are just a few weeks left of this project! I have so enjoyed it!
