Opportunities Lost, But Not Forgotten

Have you ever had a camera in hand only to miss a perfect shot by a split second? Saturday was one of those days for me. It was absolutely beautiful and Jeremy and I decided to let Jackson ride his bike back to the creek and to take Macy with us this time. It seemed like the entire day I was just a fraction of a second taking a picture the entire day!

For instance, right before this picture was taken,

I missed getting a picture of Jackson forgetting how to brake and running off the road into a ditch.

I missed a perfect smile by a split second on this picture!

I just look like a squinty mess in this picture!

I missed Macy's tail in this picture!

But I did capture a smile in this pic!

But sadly, right about the time that Jackson was enjoying "fishing"...

I missed Jeremy falling into the creek!

Tragedy, I know! Check out the left butt check vs. the right butt cheek!

I did however catch Jackson's "hand on hip" action at wondering "What in the world happened to my Daddy?' The answer: Macy! Jeremy learned that it's probably not a good idea to bend down to pick something up when you are standing right beside a creek and holding a retractable leash in your hand with a wild dog on the other end!

One opportunity I didn't miss: laughing the entire squishy walk home!

I'm glad you had a good laugh at my expense.
