As I was snapping pictures of Aaron at the park on Saturday morning, I couldn't help but think that if a picture is worth a thousand words, then what is a memory worth? I wondered if there was a time before cameras when moms simply enjoyed a day at the park with their children . . . without strategizing how to get the perfect shot? But then I realized that moms of that era probably still didn't enjoy simple days at the park . . . they were probably too busy scrubbing their clothes by the stream or some other task that is now so conveniently simple for us!
So, I snapped pictures climbing . . . I snapped pictures sliding . . . I snapped pictures swinging . . . I snapped pictures spinning on the merry-go-round . . .
And I hope that someday as Aaron looks at these pictures he'll remember I'm in every one . . . behind the camera . . .
And I hope he'll remember I put the camera down and played . . .
Ron right there beside him . . . just in case!
