Good to WOW Week 16–Family/Friends

I feel entirely unprepared to post this week.  It feels like I’ve hardly had time with the camera lately though I know that not to be true.  Maybe I feel unprepared because I didn’t look ahead and shoot something specifically for this week’s theme.  Yeah.  I think that’s it.  Not that it’s necessary but it’s nice when I can post something I’ve been thoughtful about.  I’ve got a few to put up though.  The first three are Rob’s homecoming after being in Guam for almost three weeks.  DSC_7190

Getting tackled right after stepping in the door.  Had to shoot farther away than I would have liked just so I didn’t miss it.


Giving hugs and kisses.  (Sadly, I managed to cut Gabe off, darn it!)


Lifting Gideon up for a great big hug.


This one was Easter morning just before leaving for church.  It’s no where near technically perfect.  I didn’t notice the red blanket was hanging off the corner of the couch and a bunch off stuff on the coffee table snuck into the frame but I can’t resist the moment that Zion and Gideon are sharing.  It draws me in.  I don’t even know what they are cracking up about but it must be hilarious.  Elias is totally focused on me and Gabe is off in La La Land.  How utterly typical of all of them.  That’s why I love it, it’s so them.

Oh, and the joy on Rob's face holding Gideon. Glad he's home!

Oh, I love homecomings!! They always make me cry or tear up -- and your's didn't miss out! What great memories you captured! All the emotions in the last one is adorable, too!

These are moments you'll always treasure :) I'm sure one day those 2 will let you in on the secret that made them laugh like that.
