Getting the shot - I love how patient and helpful my husband is. I often get great ideas of where I want to take a picture... that doesn't mean it's always the most opportune location! For example, the other day Todd and I took the kids into Zion National Park for an afternoon of hiking. Our last stop was at the end of the Narrows where the river cuts through the canyon. The kids love to throw rocks here and it's incredibly beautiful! Anyways, there's this large rock in the center of the fast moving river, but, of course, it'd make for a great picture! So my kind husband wades out to is waste carrying the kids so his "crazy" wife can get her picture! It's so sweet! And in almost every picture I take of the two kids Todd is almost always behind me getting them to look in the general direction of the camera & smile!
p.s. Of course the kids never did both look at me and smile at the same time so I never did get the "perfect picture" for this one... still it was fun in the making!
