Storytelling Sunday

The first Sunday in the month means my lovely pal Sian is hosting Storytelling Sunday. This year, the suggested theme is My Precious and for this month, togetherness.
There are very few photos in existence of the three of us together.  During our recent holiday in Florida, we managed two!
Neither of these shots is perfect.  The Boy Child is either squinting or looking away.  The Brainy One would be the first to admit that he needs to lose some weight.
No matter.
We are there together, recorded for posterity.
Three is the magic number.

Hop on over to Sian's place for plenty more stories this Sunday.

Ruth, these are great shots and you all look happy and healthy and relaxed on your trip!

Karen said...

Natural shots are always far better than posed ones and you all look so natural and happy in these ones.

It's always great to get those precious family shots.

Three is indeed magic - though even two, for relationship, will do at a pinch? Lovely to see all of you together, looking beautiful AND brainy :).

Great photos and they really do show the relationship u have together. :-)

Glad you managed to get two photos of the three of you together - but happier that you managed to spend time together and relax.

This reminds me of our family holidays as a child as my dad always pulled a silly face,

These are the days to remember, and how better than looking natural, exactly as it was that day, rather than perfectly posed. Fab.

Lovely relaxed photographs of the three of you. Very precious indeed.

Mel said...

Now that we are three I am trying to get more family pics too. Dad's always seem to end up behind the camera!

Liz said...

Love the top one. Did you manage to get a flight? xxx

A photo of the family is always special even if one of you does squint, it's a natural thing to do when a camera is waved in front of your nose. Besides, he's a kid, it's his job to pull faces.

I love pictures like this! The ones we have from family holidays when I was little are few, but very precious indeed and their value will only improve over the years..

Perfectly precious indeed

Jo said...

Great photos and I love that he's looking at you in the second one and not at the camera x

Cute post, Ruth. Love the vacation togetherness about these photos!

Deb@threeisacharm said...

So sweet, Ruth! I too love that your little one is looking at you in the second photo!

Cheri said...

It captures your real life beautifully!

Becky said...

It is great that you got some photos of the three of you together. We often have that problem as someone is always behind the camera. But when we went to Disney we loved their photo pass system as we have one holiday with LOTS of photos of us all together :) A wonderful precious.
