Last Summer Fling…
Well, he is back…yippee! Yes, this is how we celebrated our anniversary! Who better to be with, than the one that makes your heart beat just a little faster? This grandma could look into his eyes forever.
We had only been there an hour, and he had to show Ma Ma and Pa Pa, (this looks like it might be our new names) around his backyard and all the changes his parents have made.
I bring out my camera and look at the pose he goes into! Oh my word!! We might have a little GQ model on our hands. He is only 22 months old…for goodness sakes. I didn’t like the lightening situation where he was standing, or have my reflectors with me…but I seriously couldn’t let this moment pass!
One of the first things we did was try out their pool. Little Man has quiet the collection of baby floats. I picked this one out for him to give it a spin…isn’t it adorable?
Here, you see one of the piles of floats for him. He is not crazy about sitting in the middle of these. Mommy and daddy have bought different styles, thinking it might make a difference in his attitude of being in these devices. He is good for about 5 minutes…then he wants out!☺ He likes his freedom and not being confined…what a boy!
It then dawns on us…oh no, we forgot to put sunscreen and a hat on him! Okay, we are still new at this grandparent business♥
Well, we panicked and started slathering the sunscreen everywhere on him. We had it all over his shirt collar, up in his hat brim, on his eyebrows, in his nose…I think we might need a little more practice. Smile!
At least, he has a great sense of humor with his stumbling grandparents.
Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers:
If you want to have a more blurred background in your image, move the subject away from the background at least 5-10 feet.
The more you move your subject…the dreamier the background becomes!
In the case of the top photo, I wanted the brick wall to show some definition…so I only moved him out…a few feet.
Can you share one of your first memories of being with your grandparents as a child?
