When we take roadtrips, Don and I like to talk and snack. I do my very best to try to be good, but inevitably, I indulge in the over-processed goodness that small convenience stores like Allsup's offer. Usually, I'll munch on a beef and bean burrito, but this time, I had a craving for something crunchy and chocolate. I opted for Cheetos Puffs and an extra large Reese's peanut butter cup. The combination of the two was sweet goodness! Mmmmm...And then Mari piped up from the back, "Mommy, I want a Cheeto!" What? How did she even know what a Cheeto was? Seriously. I hid the Cheetos, offered her the Vruit drink and handed her some fruit leather. Although, why was I not sharing with my daughter, when the one in utero was happily flipping over Cheetos? Double guilt!
Anyway, while we were away, Don and I played. No really, we were wearing our photographer hats and at the end of the day's session, Don pulled me aside and asked me to pose for him for a couple of shots. I've been trusting him more behind the lens, which is saying a whole lot because I'm not entirely comfortably being out front. Even though I felt less than stellar, I sucked it up and did as requested. Wow, am I happy I did. I'm so proud of him. He got some amazing shots! These two are some of my favorites:
Afterwards, since we had some time and a free babysitter, we headed to dinner together and loved it. (even though the food did make me sick, but that was my bad because it was full of lactose evilness) I so appreciate having some special and quality time with my husband. When we can capture those moments "on film" makes it that much more special.
I'm eagerly looking forward to our "formal" session that we'll have in February. He wanted to do something different and out of the norm. We'll see what happens.
