Family Date Day
John took the day off on Friday so that we could take the kids to a local kid’s amusement park. As I packed up for the day, I wavered between wanting to bring a camera and not wanting to lug it around. It becomes cumbersome, especially with going on rides and worrying about it getting thrown around. So I decided to leave it at home. Until we got there and I was already feeling sad that all of my cameras were a home. So I bought a disposable camera in the gift shop. Best $12 spent ever! (Ok, not ever – but it was money well spent.) I loved throwing it in my pocket and the kids thought it was fun(and thought it was theirs because it had cartoons on it.) I didn’t stress about taking perfect pictures, just capturing our fun day. I actually think I may buy a few now to have around, or at the very least see if I can dig around and find an old 35mm point and shoot at my parents’ house to take for quick trips.
Disposable camera + Beautiful weather without the sun beating on us all day + an extra day tacked onto a long weekend + kids excited about a fun surprise = Great Day!
