Been a long, busy weekend around these parts. Kids still off one more day, then they head back for the one last push before summer vacation.
Saturday night, my wife and I “delivered” a lot of Easter eggs around the yard, dropping dozens of plastic eggs on the grass, in the landscaping even up in trees. With kids at 10, 6 and 5, they were looking forward to Easter morning “hunt.” In fact, my two youngest – the boys – were up at 3 a.m. (yes, you read that right) and then at 6, all eager to get started.
By mid-afternoon, after the hunt, and breakfast and Easter services, they were running low on gas. We all piled into the car – took Bo too – and headed down to Asbury Park. It was about 85 degrees, probably the nicest Easter Sunday I can remember.
Since the squad was all gussied up in their Easter best, I had to take the opportunity to get a new family photo. Of course, it took a few takes.
In the end, though, we got a pretty nice photo that I can print and we’ll most like hang on a wall someplace.
We’re memory-keepers, folks. We have these cameras on our shoulders or in our pockets and we’re entrusted with documenting these scenes and keeping these memories safe.
It’s what we do.
Whether you just celebrated Easter or Passover or just the weekend, here’s hoping you documented those memories.
Even if it’s a sad-looking bunny on a train.
Let’s keep after it, and drive on.
