While on vacation the hubby and I
got to escape went out for a date while my in-laws put the kids to bed. Before leaving, I remember having a debate in my mind.
Should I bring the camera?
Bringing the camera involves dedicating a LOT of room in my purse. So I usually only take it when there’s high potential for a Kodak moment.
I went ahead and put the camera in my purse thinking I wouldn’t use it.
The hubby and I went out on a little date night and ended up driving through this beautiful covered bridge. This is so pretty–how could we not take a picture of it?
Then the hubby offered to take some pictures of me.
I’m a busy stay-at-home mom. Most days my makeup is half worn off, my hair is greasy since I didn’t have time to wash it, and I’m wearing workout shorts & an old Tshirt with holes in it.
That day I had a shower, my hair wasn’t super greasy & I had makeup on so why not?
The next thing I knew I was in the middle of a photo shoot! The lighting was just right, the scenery was beautiful and the pictures turned out great. I’m SO glad we brought the camera!
Here’s The Funny Part
Then before my head got too big thinking I was some supermodel, the hubby asks “what’s that on your shirt?”
Of course. Go figure. The one day I get some nice pictures taken I have some unknown substance on my shirt. Probably kids toothpaste, mushed up Goldfish or who-knows-what. All I know is it’s right at the head level of my four year old, so I’m blaming her.
Oh yea. I also had baby drool on my shoulder.
Oh the joys of motherhood.
I have to admit….I like the shirt-stained goofy pictures just as much as the “good” ones. I’ve learned over the years that life is more fun when you’re laughing.
So the point of this story is…if you’re debating about bringing the camera, go ahead and do it. You never know what moments you might capture.
