Sum it up Saturday: Family Pictures

Yes I realize it’s not Saturday anymore, but better late than never. I’d like to start getting into posting my weekend roundups regularly again. This will include everything from shopping finds, to activities we did, to sermons that made me think. So here’s this weeks Sum it up Saturday!

Sum it up Saturday ~ Just One Mommy's Opinion

This weekend we had Dad home! Which meant we needed to take advantage of the time we had with him and do something fun. As you know he is not home a lot due to his new job. So we decided to go on a walk and get some exercise around our whole neighborhood and take some great family pictures.

My son is getting very into taking pictures as well. Plus it helps to have someone who can take pictures of me when need be for my posts! He’s only 9 but he really enjoys it. This momma does need a tripod though!

I make him kiss in pics. He kind of hates PDA. But he does it for me anyways 😀  That’s love… 10 years going strong. Never will anyone be more important to me than this man right here.

BTW, my hair is insanely RED right now. And I hate it! I’m in the works of going blonde, first step will be taken this week. I will be posting a youtube video on the process of brunette/redhead to blonde, so stay tuned for that!

Morning dew ~ Just One Mommy's Opinion

We were walking around and I spotted a ton of plants with dew droplets still on them from the morning cold and I had to take some pics. They came out beautifully. God has truly made beauty on this earth. I am always amazed.

My basketball loving hubby apparently thinks he’s a 7 foot player who can jump to any height, sorry honey you’re not. You were kinda close though?  😆

I had to include some funny bloopers of my kiddos. I cannot believe I didn’t get one good one. My youngest is 2 and he is just not cooperative. The bottom photo is my favorite. Sis had pulled his sleeve and his hand was missing! Lol, makes me crack up..

At least with these two, they’ll pose and stand still for me! I can however get some decent shots of my son if he’s by himself, like this one..

  1. We are also 5 in the family and I also have a girl and 2 boys. Whenever we are going out, we always bring our tripod so we can have a nice picture of our whole family…

    1. That’s the best idea. Always bring a tripod. I guess it’s time I should invest in one!

  2. I hope my youngest will start taking photos for me but I doubt it. He hates anything to do with photos.

    1. Aww, just have him hold it and give it a try! Never know 😉
