I love being the memory keeper for my family. I try to keep my camera handy to get those spontaneous snapshots, but I also love to force the family to pose for group photos once in a while! I coerced my parents into taking some photos with their grand-daughters while we were down at the beach, and I'm so glad I did.
Didn't they turn out great?
I especially love that my parents are willing to make dorky faces with the kids! Those are the ones I think I will cherish forever in my heart. After all, it's "easy to be heavy, hard to be light" (G.K. Chesterton), right? I love that sometimes we make a point to "be light" here and there, even when we're exhausted from the girls waking us up at 6 a.m. every morning!
Who is the "memory keeper" in your family?
