In the Car

In the old Mini Van I keep an extra booster seat. It has come in handy in many situations. We meet a friend for lunch, and than if we want, he can come over for a play date. Also, if I happen to watch someone's kiddo for a day, I can still leave the house.

Back Seat

I have a BIG problem staying home for an entire day. After about lunch time the walls start to cave in on me. Sometimes, it is not even enough to leave to get the kids from their half day of school. Shag and I normally do not come back home until lunch with the older boys.

There is always a lot of talking on the ride home from school. I must say, I really like it when my kids talk to me. It seems like in the car, they are engaged and not distracted. They talk about a lot of things and I find out so much about them and their thoughts. Don't get me wrong, I do still like the quiet rides, but then I find myself calling a friend on the phone.

This sweet girl offered to take a photo of the boys and I while at the mall. None of the photos I took erally turned out. But I liked this one.

That's a great shot. I love the faux hawk. You need to frame thatone for sure.

How could you not love that shot? :)
I love riding in the car...but, I can't stand it to be silent, I either have to be listening to something interesting on talk radio or be on the phone talking to a friend...

What a great shot of the four of you -- the boys are so handsome and you look great!

Love the picture of all of you!! So special. I also have always loved rearview mirror shots. Personally, I hate driving. Really, really detest it.

Your kids are so stinking cute! And you're gorgeous!

Your little one is sporting that hair that I love. :)

How did you get the mirror without showing your camera in the mirror? Hmmm...

Maya January 21, 2009 at 10:08 AM  

Isn't it nice to get in a photo with the boys! I feel like I'm never in the photos!

Cara January 21, 2009 at 12:45 PM  

I love it. You a great looking bunch. Your boys are so handsome.

How nice of that girl to offer to take your picture. I love that shot. Funny, I often beg for silence in the car. I ask Ella to listen to the quiet! Most of the time its the only chance I get to think. :o)

Love that shot of you and the boys - you are so pretty! What a nice lady to do that for you. Usually when someone takes my camera they can never manage to get a picture in focus. :(

Oh the van shot - that is fantastic! I like the one of you and the boys too - we are the same way around here...let's go to the gym, or to lunch, or to the park..just OUT of the house! :-)
