The other side of the camera - Beach day!

Forever In Blue Jeans
I'm participating in what I think is a really smart weekly challenge hosted by Carin at Forever in Blue Jeans. It seems like mamas spend an awful lot of time behind the camera. The idea of this challenge is for mamas to get on the other side of the camera in at least one photo a week.

When my boys grow up they'll inherit hundreds of thousands of photos taken from their childhood, but how many of those will show their mama? At least for this year I can answer 52!

So the weather wasn't great but we had a fun day. First we started at the beach...
Jack showing off his seashell find.

Getting some seriously squishy love from Mama.

Then we headed to a local seafood hole-in-the-wall.
I, skillfully, wipe the ever-present drool from Logan's chin for our photo op.

Checking out the scenery.

Be sure to see my earlier post below too...

  3. I would hang out at any beach on a not so pleasant day. It's been forever since I have been to a beach.

    I have to say I am lovin' the squishy mom kiss picture...too cute.
