Mother's Day was an awesome day for me. I got to spend it with my two young adults, Nic and Annalise and my favorite pup. The plan was to go for a hike. Of course, my camera and equipment was coming too. My thought was to take a beautiful family photo using my tripod and my timer on my camera. Well, easier said than done. Why is it that everyone else's children enjoy taking photos with their family, but to get my two to take a photo with me is almost not worth the effort. What follows in photos are my attempts at our family photo and although they aren't the most perfect photos, they mean the world to me. They are funny and comical and oh so my family. We are a forever family. Both my children were adopted from Russia when they were infants. They were each born in different cities and have turned out to be so amazing and wonderful. I always say that they were my babies, I just had to go and find them. I was determined to find them and I did. Happy Mother's Day everyone!!
