Daily Photo 4-5-11

A Father and His Daughter

“A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart.”

There is something I adore about looking at my son walking hand in hand with his six year old daughter or carrying her piggy-back. I like shooting them from behind, because that way neither one is posing for the picture. Saturday morning, before Eloise’s birthday party that afternoon, we all went over to her school to see the individual classroom victory gardens they had built. It was quite windy and chilly and E. was freezing. Don’t you know it would just have to turn cold, windy, and rainy on the day of her big party. While we were walking around the schoolyard, I grabbed this shot.
