Yesterday, in an attempt to be more present with my kids, I took them to the sprinkle park and allowed myself to take pictures only once. Then I put the phone away and played in the water and swung on the swings and all that stuff.
Which means I missed photographing the moment when five wet kids decided to lay down in the sand pit and make sand angels. Wasn’t even thinking about this week’s theme. See what happens when you put away your phone? Calamity.
So instead, you get an oldie but a goodie. One of my favorite pictures of one of my favorite people in one of my favorite places.
Gabriel, several years ago, playing on the beach at Watch Hill, RI. Look at his little hands! Look how chubby!
As an aside, if you ever come visit us during the summer, we will take you to Watch Hill and it will be glorious.
