My husband rolls his eyes every time I get the camera out on holiday; he sees me trying to herd the kids and make them smile and wonders why I bother but I just love to capture and look back on all our moments and see how much the kids have changed over the years. However, I’m pretty guilty of not actually doing much with the photos when we get home and I’m sure I’m not alone. You know what it’s like; you take hundreds of photos but then they live on a memory card or on your computer forever more only seeing the light of day when you’re trying to look for a particular photo.
I thought I would share some of my favourite holiday moments from over the years…yes, the photos aren’t always beautiful or particularly well shot but it’s the memory attached to them that’s really special to me and makes me smile when I feel like life’s just getting a bit too much. They remind me that better days are coming.
Even just putting this post together I found myself looking at 1000’s of photos and wishing I had them to hand to show the kids after school today when we’re just sat on the sofa chilling out. I think it’s so important to show them the things they did in their younger years – I think it helps them to appreciate everything they are lucky enough to have experienced.
I love the idea of having my photos printed out and ready to browse if me or the kids fancy a look but the thought of sticking photos in to albums doesn’t really appeal – mainly because I don’t have the time to sit and do it in peace i.e. without kids! I wish I had created a photobook using Truprint when we came home from all these special holiday’s so we could reminisce whenever we wanted and it would also make a lovely gift for a granny or grandad!
