So I took this about 2 or 3 weeks ago....we just decided to take a day trip to the ocean. It was so incredably needed! Beautiful weather, sandy beaches, laughing kids = The best kind of day trips and some pretty darn great pictures.....than last week my 10 yr old son Tristan was hit by a car ='( and was lucky to come out with mainly scrapes, bruises and a concussion. But as i was looking for which photo to use I saw this one and it reminded me how much i love my kids and how close I came to losing one last week and it scares the crap out of me =(. I don't ever want to take anything for granted again especially my beautiful children. and it also just reminds me why I love photography so much and why I take a gazillion pictures of them and will continue to do so. This picture is how i want my kids to remember there childhood loving, carefree and full of life!
