14/52 PICTURES OF ME

I'm participating in a year long challenge, created by Carin at Forever In Blue Jeans. The goal is to be in one picture a week, for 52 weeks. Since us moms are always behind the camera, this gives us a chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. So, click here if you want to join in on the fun!

It was my oldest daughter's birthday on Tuesday, so we had a picnic at the park that afternoon! The kids were all playing in those play structures so I figured that was the perfect time to try to get my picture with them! I wanted to use the self timer option, but yah right! They can barely stand there when I'm taking the picture!

Oh..and this picture is so funny because my son kept making goofy faces and poses in the background! Of course, my daughter's phone is ringing off the hook from her friends wishing her a Happy Birthday, and in case you are wondering, my three little ones were busy playing in the sand!

It was just about impossible to get all my kids to stand still and take a decent photo when they were young. There was always some joker in the group making a face, etc. That's really a pretty good pic. Thanks for sharing!

Stacy said...

LOL....He is too funny in the back making those "Myspace" faces..lol.That what I call them because my niece has pictures of that everywhere!

Great picture!

Kelli said...

Cute! I don't know if I'll ever get used to the idea of kids having cell phones. I got my first phone when i started driving. The world has gone forward and left me behind I believe.

This is the best photo! It really captures life. I love it! His face could be put on any of my boys faces...just priceless....Boys who try to look hard...but they really don't have clue about anything really "hard." I LOVE IT!

Life in it's truest form!
Great picture :)

Carin said...

I love this picture, there is so much going on! You with a beautiful smile, your daughter on the phone and looking at you. And your son in the background. Ah! It just makes me smile.

Yes, Alicia, I did get the Gold at Blenza. I already had some sort of membership so I just upgraded. It was something like $3.66 because I was already a member and it's partial year. I half wonder if it's not a way for them to make money. Not that I blame them one bit!!

momstheword said...

You always are so photogenic girl! So are you kids. Even Mr. funny-faces in the background!

Are you doing to upgrade and pay for Mr. Linky? I've been thinking of doing that myself. What're you gonna do?

Kristen said...

Great pic - love the "real life" this shot tells! Beautiful smile you have!

Your daughter is stunning. Sounds like a fun birthday celebration. I love the fact that you got the pic despite timer, goofy faces and phone ringing. What a story in itself.
