Bittersweet photo shoot

I was beginning to worry that I am not going to be able to take any pictures of the kids with their grandpa because of the weather, but we were lucky. Yesterday felt like a real Spring day  and we took advantage of it to go out and do the photo shoot like we were supposed to.

It’s funny to see the gang with their sunglasses on, enjoying the sun just a couple of weeks after we had snow.

I have a couple of black and white shots that I simply love. I wish I could post all of them, but this post is getting entirely too long already.

 Funny faces and smiles, that’s what I wanted to see in this photo shoot. I have to admit not all of them were excited when we started ( read that my son was grumpy and not very cooperative), but honestly, who could keep being a grump when the weather outside was so gorgeous?!

I have to admit I kept sniffing at their shoes, because there were dead fish on the bank of the river and I was terrified the smell will transfer to the car.

The little “rock star” didn’t miss the chance to shine again. Since before she even knew what a rock star is, she’s been saying she would be one when she grows up. That, and an artist ” like Mommy”. Her words, not mine. 🙂

Some of us got tired, some of us got hungry, but I was very happy that the kids got to finally spend a nice relaxing day outdoors with their Grandpa.

When we were at the park I didn’t pay attention on what was behind us. So, when we started to leave and turned around, I saw this flag. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it there before, but in the eve of the Boston events, I felt the need to take a picture of it.

We are happy that Grandpa visited with us, we see him so rarely. It is sad that he is leaving, but one thing we will keep forever is the memory of the fun times we had together this year, until the next visit.
