Friday's Favorite Family Fotos. I say jump...you say how high!

Deborah of Pictures Pots and Pens is hosting Friday's Favorite Family Fotos. She is not able to host this week but I am still going to play.


This picture is about 3 and half years old. I love the smile on Tim's face (and the green lawn !) He was jumping up and down on his trampoline one day and I grabbed the camera to snap a few pictures. I like that he is mid jump on this picture.

I have very few pictures of me from when I was little. I hope Tim values all that I have taken of him! I hope that he looks back on them someday and it brings a smile to his face to remember his childhood. I hope he knows that I took these pictures because he brings me so much joy.

take care,
Dawn

Dawn, your photos of Tim bring me Joy too. He will have wonderful memories because he has wonderful parents who love him. Love is all there is to having a happy life.

Mid air is very cool and Tim is so darn cute he makes me smile.

Love, Jeanne

This is such a cute picture Dawn. I love all the photos I've taken of my kids when they were small--they grow and change so fast don't they?

Hi Dawn,
I think your picture is adorable. I'm sure he will appreciate it the older he gets.

I have lots of my kids, and even more of Connor and Cooper thanks to digital photography! One of my projects is going to be scanning lots of my favorites of my photos of my children so they will be preserved digitally!
My pictures are priceless to me!

Have a great day!

Dawn, you are a wonderful mother, and both of your children adore you. They will carry the love you share and your example of what a good parent is with them the rest of their lives. Why look what a good parent Brittainy is - and she learned it from her mother.

I think that we have so few pictures of us because it was so darn expensive: the flash bulbs! the film! the cost of development! Now, invest in a camera and snap away. I notice that kids are not as camera shy as we are. Your Tim is a good looking guy.

Good Morning Dawn
What a lovely picture of a very happy boy. I can tell the joy he bring to your life....and how lucky that you all have each other. Very sweet.
Have a lovely day on that note!!

That is the cutest picture of Tim...he is having so much fun on that mini-tramp!! I do think our children will enjoy looking back at all the pictures we take of them now days...I know I love looking at pictures from when I was young.

Great picture Dawn!

Oh my goodness, just look at that beautiful smile! Just makes you want to go kiss those sweet little cheeks, doesn't it?!!

And you know, I do like to think that our munchkins will someday truly be grateful for all the photos we take. I sure wish I had more than just a couple pictures of me as a kid. And I think they'll really appreciate all the stories of their lives that we record, too, whether it be in scrapbooks or journals or letters to them or even on our blogs. :)

Sooo, sooo cute, Dawn! Love Tim's happy face...Seeing photos of children helps us remember all the happy times, and keep in touch with our own inner child-joy. Love when you share the photos...Happy weekend to you all ((HUGS))

What a super cute photo! I'm sure when he's old enough he'll appreciate all the photos that you've taken. My husband's got maybe a handful of photos of himself from his childhood and it's such a shame.

The best thing about photos now is that they are so ez to take and so portable. They can be shared with everyone at the click of a mouse! I wish they'd had stuff like that when we were young.

Aww, what a great shot and that smile can light up a whole day.
Hugs to Tim.
