Five Things Friday ~ 5 Favourite Photos

Five Things Friday - 5 of my favourite photographs

For Five Things Friday this week, I wanted to share five of my favourite photographs - I have so many, but these were the ones that sprang to mind when I started looking through my folders on my computer. I have no idea how people will be able to choose only five in the years to come when they will have thousands saved (instead of the measly few I have to choose from - thanks to the Kodak days.)

FAMILY OUTING


                                                                                                                                                          This is a picture of me with our two kids - we were heading off for a day at our annual Agricultural Show - it's a highlight of the year down where we live and a smaller version of the Royal Show that's held in our capital city every September. The kids loved the Show and it was a yearly treat for our family. We stopped going when they wanted to go with their friends, and my husband and I decided to attend again a couple of years ago - it was much smaller than I remember - probably because I wasn't seeing it through the eyes of our small children.


TRAVELLING WITH MUM


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 This is a photo taken when Mum and I went on a trip to Europe together. She loved the gardens and flowers and it was a wonderful time together sharing the experience and getting to know each other on a different level. The weather was beautiful and the scenery was amazing.


THE TWO OF US


                                                                                                                                                      This was taken at my 50th Birthday party. I'm not much of a party person, but I'd read an article about how important it is to make memories and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. We had a group of friends over for lunch and our daughter came down for the occasion - a really happy day. The photo also reflects our personalities perfectly - calm and serene (him) and bright and smiley (me)!


THE KIDS


                                                                                                                                                               It might be different for other families, but for ours it is almost impossible to get both our kids and their spouses together in the same photograph. This one was done with some long-suffering sighs but with the knowledge that it was making their mum happy. It's so lovely to see them all happy with each other and happy to see us when we came up to visit (although I'm sure the free lunch was added incentive!)

OUR GRANDBABY


For those who actually read my blog regularly, you would not be surprised to see a photo that includes our lovely little Sophia. She is our first grandbaby (daughter of Jared and Hannah - pictured sitting in the photo above this one). This photo was taken a few weeks ago on her first visit to the country to stay at our place. We took her (with her parents) out to a lovely cottage and garden for afternoon tea and she managed to enchant the ladies sitting at the table next to us - no surprise really.

    1. I hadn't thought about them all being "people" pics - I guess it reflects how important family is to me Carol.

  5. I love them all but "the kids" are fantastic. The long-suffering sigh is part of it, but don't we all love those images.

    1. I think I was a bit of an expert at the long-suffering sigh when my kids were little - but the effort paid off big time in the end :)

  7. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Every. Single. One. (Though I may be just a tad partial to Sophia. Oh, how I wish I had a grandDAUGHTER to add to the four grandson group.)

    Special pics. Obvious why they're among your favorites.

    1. Sophia is a gorgeous little thing isn't she Lisa? And granddaughters are a bit like daughters - they just have that cuteness to them that boys are missing. That being said, I love the mischievousness and adventurous nature of boys - they're just so full of life!
