Family Foto: A First for Cooper

Recently I made these pictures of Connor and Cooper at the mall on those little riding toys that you drop the coins in. I love pictures that tell a story and record an event in order.

You can see from the first picture that Cooper looked at me in shock after we had deposited the coins and the little car in which he and Connor were riding started moving. I thought at first that he was going to start crying.

They say all kids are so different...and you can see from the 'shiner' on Connor's forehead that he is 'ALL BOY'!
Cooper is a little more reserved right now.....but with big brother around, that probably won't last long!

In the second picture, we put him in another two seater thinking Connor would make him feel safer. Connor really wasn't too concerned about baby brother! I wonder what was going on in that little brain of his...he is looking at me like....'why are we going through this again?'

And finally, in the last shot, you can see the beginnings of a smile! He wasn't exactly laughing with delight by the end of this adventure, but you can see that he finally started enjoying himself!
Since I started blogging, I usually carry my camera with me just about everywhere. I'm so glad I had it this day so I could capture Cooper's first mall ride with pictures.

Those are absolutely the cutest pictures....those big blue eyes are huge!!! CUTE, CUTE and I am so glad Cooper did start to enjoy the ride....oh, that is just adorable!!!!

How precious, Diane ... Didn't you just want to scoop Cooper up and tell him he didn't have to ride if he didn't want to

We've tried to ride a couple of carousels with Avery, but always have to get them to stop before the ride is over and let us get off. I can't say that I blame her, though. Have you ever noticed how scary the faces of the horses are on those things?

I always love your pictures of Conner and Cooper. They're so precious.

These are pictures are so cute, Diane. Absolutely wonderful keepsake photos. Beautiful grandchildren.

I always have some sort of camera with me. It may not always be the big camera, but I most definitely keep one hand.

Great idea to capture all the moments you can with the grands...the years pass all too quickly... ;- Bo

Those pictures are priceless! The expressions on their little faces tell it all. Big brother is having a ball...little brother maybe not so much.

Precious! Look at Cooper's chubby cheeks! I love them!

Conner is just an old pro at all this, isn't he.

Thanks for sharing your photo!

Yes, you can see it all in Cooper's big beautiful eyes...he was wondering what in the heck was going on!?!

I love that you started carrying around a camera nowadays. I do too. I bought a little digital to keep in my if I could only remember to keep it fully charged up!

Oh, what adorable grandsons you have. Isn't life fabulous? Hope school is going okay. I am going to sub for a friend next week on Wed., Thur., & Fri. You inspired me to give it a try. Have a great weekend.

Hello Diane, the photos of Connor and Cooper are priceless. Gosh, they are beautiful children. The blue eyes are stunning. Someday you will be fighting off the girls for sure. The trip in the Mall is always fun for kids. Cooper will be begging you the next trip.

You haven't mentioned teaching. How is it going?

Have a great weekend.

Love... Jeanne
