It's probably easy to see from my blog posts that my boys are into all things "boy" which means they spend a lot of time doing "guy stuff" with my husband. They hunt, watch football, play street hockey, knee hockey, baseball, golf together...you name it. While I must say this does have some perks (it gives me plenty of time to read my ever-rising pile of books) it's fun to find ways for me to have special time with the kids as well. The boys and I have a few things that are just "mommy activities". For example, the three of us kayak, take long trips to the book store, go to movies, but one of my all-time favorite "mommy-son activities" is taking pictures. My boys LOVE taking pictures which of course melts my heart! They both have their very own cameras that go along with them on trips and they use them quite a bit in and around the house. It's been so fun to sort through their pictures and see the images they captured through their lenses. Let's hope their passion for photography stays with them for many years to come.
Below are a few photos taken by my little shutterbugs...followed by today's camera-themed lunch!
My oldest son has been trying his hand at food photography (I have NO idea where he comes up with this stuff..wink, wink).
Today's lunch includes: ham and cheese camera sandwich (white rope cheese for the strap, colby cheese and white american cheese for the lens/flash/shutter button), plums/kiwi, cucumber, chocolate granola bar, almonds. This lunch box shown is the Planet Box Lunch Box
