DD’s daughter, Mimi, is our youngest grandchild. Consequently, she gets more than her fair share of the attention when she is around.
And it doesn’t hurt that Mimi (5), makes photography fun — she’s always doing something photo-worthy. Don’t worry, the tattoo isn’t real. She got it at an amusement park the day before.
But, when we were together on the Fourth, our oldest granddaughter was there with her husband and son, JJ (who is almost 2). So, there was a new “star” … everyone wanted to play with and be around JJ. And, we weren’t totally sure how that would play with Mimi. How would she take to suddenly having to share the spotlight?
Well, we needn’t have worried:
First of all, she has a photo-worthy sense of style. She can wear hair pretties and a girly dress, along with a tattoo, and carry it off!
(btw, as you can see, DD and I sometimes get in each other’s way when taking our pictures. She has a verrrry nice camera, that I’m hoping she forgets to take with her sometime when she’s leaving after a visit!)
Anyway, Mimi is always ready to pose for a picture. Here, when she paused for a “Kodak moment” before marching off to fish, she caught JJ’s attention.
Even though JJ had an appointment for a boat ride with his grandpa, you could tell this “big kid in the red dress” interested him.
Their fishing and boat rides over, Mimi, looking a little the worse for wear (did the fish get your hair pretties, Mimi?), was ready to spend some quality time with JJ.
Let’s go see what we can find to play with.
She’s using her “big kid” skills to show him the best way to play with his newest toy.
They played together great.
And, Mimi’s never going to have to worry about not getting her share of the spotlight as long as she’s such an interesting kid!
It was so much fun to have everyone together. And, these pictures will always help us remember what it was like. I am thankful for family … and photography!
