The OC Fair and a Blooming Photographer

I've got to be honest, I'm a grumpy guss in the heat, which is just a bummer when you live in southern california. I'm working on putting on an attitude of fun for my kiddos. At the end of the day, I want to know they laughed and had fun. Saying yes to the fair was part of this mamahood journey for me.
We ventured out with my father-in-law, his wife, my brother-in-law, his kiddos, and our family. We were a sight. Haha.
 Then Payton got ahold of the camera and I am in love with these photos. She is just a little creative discovering the world at two years old. This is another thing I have to choose to have a different attitude about. Yes, she needs to ask to use the camera, and yes, she needs to be ok when it's time to be done, but I can get over finger prints and imperfect pictures. Really, her pictures are an accurate snapshot of our lives. She isn't worried about getting the right angle or making us look good- she just wants us to be us. She loves us. There is something there for me to love us as we are.
 It was the perfect start to my three weeks of summer.
