My oldest son and I spent an evening hanging out with this beautiful family. My son makes the kids laugh; I snap the photos. After we left my son said, "Mom, I will always come with you when you take pictures." Melt. My. Heart. Like many other moms, I can let myself feel guilty when I take time away from the home to do something I love. I easily forget that my little boys are always watching and learning. It is good and even inspirational for them to see me stretch my artistic fingers.
It really was a lovely evening spent with my oldest son and our friends.
