Mother’s Day in Photos- Family Time

mom day 8

Mom’s Monday Mingle is taking a break for one week while my co-host is enjoying a sunny vacation, so I thought I’d switch things up just a tad.

For those of you who frequent All She Cooks, I thought I’d give you a peak at my family in my About Me  section or over in my newer ‘Start Here‘ section.   I don’t share a ton of non-food or blogging related posts here, but after the wonderful Mother’s Day I had with my two awesome kids, I thought it would be a great time to share a few photos I captured that day.

We went on a nice hike on a local trail, and when we hike my kids (like yours I am sure) pose like mad.  And go off-roading.  Good thing this was a trail where that sort of thing is okay and not frowned upon.  At least I don’t think it is.

What is it about trees that make grown boys act like monkeys?  I’ll never know!  They are like a magnet.  And we wonder how we somehow carted home 4 ticks.  Yes, two for each kid.  Nice, right?

Look at their smiles!  Ah, that made my Mother’s Day.  Our daughter is younger than her brother by nearly 2 1/2 years, but she’s the mastermind behind the majority of these photos. Posing, telling her brother they had to hold hands, smile and be silly for the photos.  She’s always been a natural for the camera, that’s for sure!

And this has always been one of my favorite poses of them.  I swear I have this same shot on a half dozen different vacations at various stages of their youth.  Walking along a trail side by side, getting along for the day.  Good thing I have those photos to remind them that they can and do get along!

Enjoy your family and your day.

    I love all the photos – you have seen more ticks than I have already this season – I have only had one on me so far this year – but then I do not climb trees :) (anymore) my lovely grandchildren!
