I heard through the grapevine that some of our friends think my husband and I are so laid back, that in a stressful situation, they ask each other, "What would Mr. and Mrs. Eaglet Trio do?"
That made my day, because I'm actually a pretty high-strung, impatient, control freak, who often takes life to seriously...but, at least I'm self-aware.
I'm trying to be more fun. Today I nailed it with the kids and all it took was a blanket, a camera and their jumpiness. The blanket is to contain them to a certain spot and keep the others away so they don't get hurt. Then I just snapped pictures while they jumped the highest they could or posed their bodies in funny ways.
|Tey is so little and fast, it was hard to capture him in mid-air.|
|His cheesy smile shows how much fun he had.|
|I have no idea how he got his body like this and still landed without hurting himself.|
|Bean was like a little Spiderman.|
|If I had a penny for every time I remind him to keep his tongue in his mouth when he jumps...|
I told you I'm high strung. I worry that he will bite his tongue off.
|BINGO! This was the pose he wanted me to capture. It only look like 50 tries. PE for the day? Check!|
