Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Dad & Son Bonding

N is a tiger scout - that is what they call 1st graders in Cub Scouts. He quite enjoys it and had a chance to go on an overnight trip with his dad to the USS Massachusetts. It is a WWII battleship and they got to tour it and spend the night sleeping in the bunks. N jumped at the chance to sleep on the top bunk - 4 high. Well, apparently the kids slept but I hear the dads couldn't...too many kiddos snoring, talking in their sleep and the quarters were a bit confining. But N & K had a great time together and N is already looking forward to it next year. K, will soon start looking for a padded sleeping bag and ear plugs!
