I’m in the Picture ~ Moments to Remember

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .


Moments to Remember was developed as a simple way to look back on our week as homeschoolers and find photos that encompass the memories we want to remember. 

The week may have been tough, there may have been more bumps than smiles, but in the end these are the moments that keep us going, the ones we need to remember.

Great Wolf Lodge-1-2

So…this may not be the most earth-shattering picture for anyone else, but I am super giddy because of one thing.

I am in the picture.

More often than not, I am the one that is behind the lens. There are lots of pictures of our kids and my hubby. But typically no proof that I was actually present and accounted for on family vacations or day trips that we take.

It may not be the best picture since we had been soaked by water all day, but we had a wonderful day. There is a cute kiddo leaning on my shoulder. I have a sweet boy sitting on my lap. Another boy that actually managed to sit still long enough not to be a blur in a photo. And one more girl that is getting way too big {and that makes me a wee bit nervous}.

But I was there. We had fun. And THAT is definitely a moment to remember.

    I can totally relate to the thing about being in the picture! Half the time I’m in my jammies with no make-up, so I don’t think anyone would want to see the picture! It looks like you guys had a great time together. :)

  2. LOVE THIS PICTURE!!! You are in it.. All 4 kids are looking at the camera with pleasant expressions! I would say it is frame worthy!

  3. Beautiful picture!

  4. Hooray for you being in the picture! It’s a great picture that deserves its own frame!

    I can totally relate…there are very few pictures of me with my kids. And hubby admits he’s a pretty bad photographer, so the ones that he takes of me with the kids I usually just delete! We’ve found it’s better to ask a passerby to take a picture of me and my children! ;-)

  5. I feel you! I told Tommy that I hope the kids have great memories, so they’ll know what I looked like, because I’m NEVER in the photos. Christmas, bday parties, field trips…only the kids and the dad.

  6. Lynn Derby says

    I just want to share…. I had a sad week this past week. My mother passed away. Sad! I am an only child and helped prepare all of the arrangements. We put together a nice slideshow with pictures of my Mom to remember her to use at the visitations. I gathered all the pictures and discovered how few there were. Even sadder to me was the fact that I only had about four pictures of my Mom and I together. I cried a lot that night. I wish I had a few more to cherish and show my own children. Don’t be camera shy or always behind the lens…… when your kids are grown up and look back it at all the pictures it will mean so much to see you, MOM! Trust me.

    that’s so cute!

  8. Jodi Whisenhunt says

    What a great photo! You have a beautiful family and it looks like you had a great day!

    I was just popping in to ask you to vote for my Magical Mouse Schoolhouse on the Circle of Moms contest. I learned about the contest just last week and am trying to make up for lost ground. Already up to #33, but the competition is fierce near the top, lol! Anyway, I’ve been voting for you each day, and I’d love it if you could give me a nudge. Thanks so much!

    P.S. I hope you and your family enjoy a relaxing Father’s Day!

  9. Can totally relate to never being in the pictures. At one point I was making sure to get some shots in and link up to Mommy and Me Monday. Not even sure if that meme is still going, I should look into it. I can also relate to the comment about them getting too big. My older children are 20, 19 and 15. Ouch.
    It is a lovely photo by the way

  10. Scott School says

    Oh how true that we mothers are rarely photographed… far in the future we may be considered an elusive creature thought to have lived in the 21st century and perhaps before then as well.

  11. Such a great picture! We’re from Alexandria and I was wondering what your review is on the “Great Wolf Lodge?” Worth the money? My kids are younger than yours (5, 3, and 2) and wasn’t sure if they’re ready for this yet. Thanks for your input!

    • Considering the cost of a waterpark near us…and the fact that there were six of us, I think it was a good deal. :) We were able to start using the waterpark at 1pm the day of our arrival {before our room was even ready}. We also had access to the park the entire day on the day we checked out ~ which is WAY more than we get at a waterpark near us that charges $40/person each day. They also have a fridge in the room, so we could have brought way more food than we did and save a lot of money eating as well. I would NOT eat at the park {the buffet is rather expensive}, so if you packed food for the trip, it would save even more! :)

      Hope that helps some! They also often have deals for homeschool families from Monday through Thursday and the rates are based on how many are at the park.
