If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my off the beaten path find earlier this week.
And if you don’t follow me on Instagram, you’re missing out on a lot of cuteness! (You can click HERE to follow.)
Anyway, I fell in love with this drive. It’s just a little half mile long rock road that I’m pretty sure is just used to access the corn fields along it.
As soon as I got home from driving down this road the other day, I rummaged through my kids’ closets to find some clothes for pictures.
And yesterday evening after gymnastics, Jarrod and I took Trenton, Charlotte, and Evelyn out to take pictures in the middle of the road.
Getting three kids to look at the camera and smile at the same time is no joke. I even brought along tricks. Good thing no one really drives down the road we were on because I had underwear on my head at one point. And it only garnered one good smile. The other two were either howling or trying to pick up rocks to eat.
We had to tell Evelyn that rocks were not on the dinner menu for the evening. She got uber mad, and that was the end of the picture taking for her.
Trenton and Charlotte were still game though (they knew they had surprises coming if they did good – yep, I bribe).
These two love each other.
Most of the time…
But then they get along again.
I took a road less traveled by a few days ago. And now I have memories that will last a lifetime.
