Celebrate This Week: Family Pics!

Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.

When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build. 

   A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.

The best thing that happened this past week was receiving a link to our family pics from my daughter's friend, Whitney. The day of our photo shoot, December 23rd, was cold and crisp. So cold that there were icy spots in the parking lot when we arrived at Saint Edward State Park. We brought blankets to wrap around our sweet boys between pics. The adults just grabbed their coats if they weren't slated for the next pic. Hats off to Whitney (who kept her hat on) for her excellent skill in working with our family group. We walked by a beautiful outdoor playground on our way to "the Grotto" that we simply must visit with the boys when the weather is warmer (think next summer). I'm committed to sharing something delightful (delight is my OLW for 2018) on each celebrate post this year. You can easily see why these pics delight me. Thanks, Whitney, for these memorable photos! 
This was the last pic taken. Our boys had 
shown remarkable patience, but this pic shows
that even sweet boys have their limits!


  1. That last one made me smile. You will treasure it, I’m sure. I love that Grandma and Grandpa pic, too. A true delight!

  2. The pics are wonderful, Ramona, and even that final one shows a moment you will remember. We did this at the beach this past summer, and I made a book of them for everyone, FYI. Maybe you will be able to do that? Happy times!

  3. These are delightful pictures. A beautiful setting. That last pic says it all!

  4. Such delight - such a celebration! What a beautiful family, Ramona!
