In our house we have something lovingly known as “Lazy Days”. It began when Noah was 2 or 3 and I worked a couple of days a week. Sometimes on a non-work day I’d get Kayla off to school I just didn’t feel like doing anything. We would stay in our jammies all day, watch movies, play games, snuggle, and just hang out. Lazy Days didn’t happen often, but once in a while Noah would actually request one. As the kids have gotten older they have become few and far between but today was one of those day.
Noah brought out one of my all time favorite games to play: Yahtzee. We sat down at the table for a few games, camera by my side.
Noah decided it was high time I was in front of the camera rather than behind it. I’d love to show you those pictures but like I said, it was a Lazy Day. There will be no photos posted of me in my jammies, glasses on, disheveled hair. When you have a short cut it’s not like you can just throw it in a ponytail and call it good. Oh no. It is painfully obvious that you have not showered. Maybe I’ll let him take pictures of me on a day when I have put some effort into looking human. Until then, you get to look at these.
Photos like these are why I’m glad I hung onto my little P&S. I keep it in my purse just in case something happens that I want to capture while we’re out and about in our everyday lives. It will never replace my DSLR but it comes in handy for moments like these.
And one final shot of the day…
That, my friends, is what we like to call a Yahtzee the hard way. In hockey they’d call it a one-timer. And it was my second one of the game. 100 points for that bad boy. Ah, yes, it was a good day.
