On any given day it is very likely that my parents, my brother, my sister in law, my brother, my sister in law, and I are all in different states. So it is a rare treat for us all to be together. To have three of my grandparents, my aunt and uncle, and my 14 year old newphew added to the group was just pure delight.
My visit was arranged as a glorified layover on my MIA-CLT-PHX-CLT-PIT-CLE-MIA-ATL-MIA-DAL-MIA circuit (all in two weeks). Still those few hours were very special. The big surprise of the day came when both my sister and sister-in-law announced they were each pregnant! The clan’s future now seems secure.
I often find my photographic creativity and my general mood go hand in hand. In this case I think the images show the relaxed, happy, and sentimental mood I was in throughout most of the day.
