I would look like this too, if a stranger walked into my house with a giant camera and wanted to take my photo. But after a quick game of Simon Says and some parent wrestling we soon got to this…
And after two hours of tickling, reading, snacking, spinning, walking, jumping, cloud watching, fake sleeping, we got one of my favorite photos of the day…
Thank you to Jaz and her parents for playing with me. And thank you to my friend Suzi who came along to help. I had lots of fun and I hope to do it again someday.
