Dennis the Menace Park

A park of memories. Will was so excited to show me the park he grew up in. “Wow,” I joked, they actually have that park still standing?

Not very many of us gets to take our kids to our birthplace and where you use to play and run.

Also, we were told our Mom, Aunts and Uncles use to play here when they were young! “More like a historical park,” our Uncle Jim would joke.

This looks dangerous. No way facilities would make equipment like this anymore. 😂

We met a friend along the way.

<< d Daddy got to push Xander on the swing. << nder wanted to run around more though. << re's my photo of the day. << is airplane looked like a lot of fun! So glad we got to spend a lot of time with our Uncle Jim and Aunt Shirley.

I will always take a picture with you

There are lots of time I never want my photo taken with Xander. I’m too out of shape, I have no make up on, I’m EXHAUSTED, what exactly am I wearing?, did I even brush my teeth?! Then I realized there are moments that will never happen again, moments that are shared between me and my son that we will always have. Always have a camera around, if you’re ever so lucky to capture those moments, and freeze time.

Everyday I’m getting older, and everyday Xander is getting older. We will never be what we were yesterday. So it doesn’t matter what you look like, TAKE those photos. A picture takes an instant out of time, altering life and holding it still.

Happy Easter

We hope everyone had a safe and Happy Easter.

Xander didn’t sleep too well the night before, and we had family over. He didn’t quite get the sleep he really wanted. These were probably the fastest pictures I have ever taken with him, literally only took 5 min. He was not in a good mood and I was able to capture none of that…except this one.

 

He was just SO done with pictures then!!
