I am a firm believer in not photographing all events. Memory is incredibly powerful, and more depth-filled than pictures. But, I guess I'm also an artist, and was sad to not take advantage of such perfect lighting and poses. Live and learn.
Thankfully we had plenty of other camera worthy moments this week, and often it was nearby. These would not be the artist's best, but great moment captures.
We made it downtown to go see the cherry blossoms on the tidal basin. Perfect weather, perfect blossoms, and the most gorgeous colored booger came out of Allie's nose. She was still batting those eye lashes and giving us flirtatious grins. Oh it was hilarious.
And then she struck this lovely pose,
and made me relieved to know she'll have to work a little to maintain her beauty in life.
Allie wasn't the only one looking fabulous for photo's this week. We attempted to get a family pic, and these are the results:
(Jackson was practicing his tree-hugging skills)
Apparently Jackson is not ok with strangers taking our picture. Ah, the memories.
We did capture this precious moment...
..for which I am grateful because the camera was not easily accessible, and I almost missed it. But it was captured.
