picture me {im}perfectly.what really goes on

you remember monday’s post, right?

yeah, sure it looked like a lot of fun and games, right?


well, it was fun and filled with games
but that’s only because of
the extra hands that were there.


yes, Auntie B came along
and i honestly don’t know
what i would have done without her.
well, yes i do know.
i would have crumbled into a ball on the sand
and cried.


but no tears were shed
(by anyone)

merely because of her presence.
remember how i’ve told you she’s
just like Mary Poppins?
well, that’s because she is.



while i was taking an up-close shot of the adults,
this is what was really going on.


see, aren’t they so helpful?

the Os were quite understanding
when i said that i could come and take some photos of them
but that i’d be bringing
my THREE children as well.



here was our main camp
where most of our junk was stowed.


and when i edited the photos,
i had to creatively crop
(and i mean this in the most loving way)
my children out of some of the shots.
my children and their billion sand toys
that accompanied us to the beach.



and the only way to have happy kids
and take photos in a short amount of time
is that while mom and dad
were smiling away in some photos,
Auntie B was kindly feeding
little B while keeping L company
and making sure D wasn’t running off
down the boardwalk.
