We Three

The light seemed just right and the foxglove were doing their thing in their spot near the lilacs late yesterday afternoon. I grabbed my computer chair and camera, then asked Cesar if he would pause a moment from his outside chores to pose with us. He said sure but needed a few more moments before he'd be free. Hugo was flying high in his rocket ship and had no interest in my photo proposal if his Poppa wasn't participating. I grabbed Rodrigo. There are no shots of Mr Rodrigo upon my computer chair, in front of the foxglove with the just right light because he kept jumping to the ground the moment his paws touched the seat of the chair. Bella was up next. She turned out to be a very good poser but I liked this first skitish looking shot of her best. She loves to hear how pretty she looks.

Hugo became bored in his rocket ship when it was no longer flying high and neither his Poppa nor his Momma would give him a push. Suddenly he was much interested in my photo proposal. I secretly think he was jealous watching my photo attentions to Mr Rodrigo and Miss Belle.

Our handsome boy is in need of a hair cut.
I have forgotten my scissors in the YW closet at church.

So here we are, we three on a lovely Sunday afternoon. We haven't had much practice with the timer on my camera and um... it shows. Cesar asked what we would use to balance the camera for the group photo. I said I didn't know, that was his job! He made it work. He always does.

Still having some posing troubles but Hugo looks cute!

This was our last shot before Cesar returned to his yard chores and Hugo lost all interest. It works.

The End.

I like the garden family pic. It looks restful--you all look happy.

I love this post. A snap shot of a day in your life. I'm always struck by how peaceful and laid back you are. Life seems to move slow enough for you to really soak it in. How wonderful. Looking forward to seeing you in July!

Very sweet "young family post" as always. I love the one of your little guy on the chair - perfect in black and white. What a cutie.

It was nice that you could actually get outside with all the crazy weather you've had lately! Good pics.
