Because The Husband is out of the country on this special day for Father’s, the boys found another way of wishing him a “Happy Father’s Day” and for a little added sweetness, they let him know that he was missed too. But as I’ve recently discovered, shooting kids gets harder and harder the older they get. Cullen is at the complete mercy of his Bumbo seat, so he stays wherever it is I place him, but his big brother is as unpredictable as it gets. I consider myself very lucky that I was able to nail this one decent shot. Both boys looking at the camera and Keane in the middle of yelling “Happy Father’s Day Dada”

Right after I snagged the above shot, the wheels came of the entire project. Keane was in the creative zone, finding new ways to use Dada’s sign.

The entire project was spread out over 2 days. Day 1 and the focus was all on sign creation. Day 2 was all about capturing the photo of the boys with the sign. And trust me, it was best to spread the project out, cos after spending quite some time on the coloring, Keane was too tired to work it for the camera. And I wasn’t up for the challenge of forcing him. I’m all about picking my battles. But here he is on Day 1, marker in hand and ready to color.

Cullen awake from his nap and ready to join the party.

I’ve no idea what made the little fella laugh this hard, but I’m glad it did.

Absolute intense concentration as Cullen observes Keane putting the lids back on the markers.

But then some tears. On a separate but very much related note, I’d like to wish my own Dad a “Happy Father’s Day”.
