Spring Break came and my little sister called asking for some help. I decided it was important enough to drive to Utah with all my 5 children to help her move. On the way to Utah we said hello and goodbye to the states we left and the states we joined. When we reached the Utah/Idaho boarder we decided to do a funny picture with the kids. I wanted the children to be eating, drinking (soda), and goofing off so I could create a cute card to send to family and friends. My kids are the cutest little sports ever. Well, we did our mini photo shoot and were ready to head out when a car with 3 men stopped behind us. I was loading my children into the van when I heard one of the men call to the other 2 to say they needed to load back in their car because their camera/phone had died and they could not take the picture. Well, I braved up, (cause I am such a wimp with strangers!!!) and told them that if they wanted I would take a picture or 2 of them. I gave them my business card and they took me up on my offer. I am so glad I did!
These 3 young men were from my state and were heading to a funeral and were brothers. I almost choked and had to hold back my tears because it reminded me of my husband and 2 of his brothers taking a road trip after their brother died in 1994. It was a nice break and a special moment to take the photos of these young men. Thank you for the opportunity guys!!!
Here are their images and then a couple of my silly kids.
(I know they are all similar but we were shooting quickly in dust storm territory and there are only 4 )
This was a dust storm I had just past and decided my kids needed potty breaks so I could take a shot:
And while waiting for the boys to stretch their legs I had to play with my macro because macro is just so much fun!
And no trip is worth mentioning without pictures of my own kids!!!
I had to laugh when I found out that my husbands cousin made this sign Thanks for looking and thanks guys for letting me capture this moment in your trip.
