Last weekend was Tyler’s homecoming dance at his school. Shaun and I were sort of out of town doing other stuff and didn’t get to take pictures. Since the dance was up here in Rocklin we had his mom come to our house for him to get ready and take pictures.
Tyler and I went shopping at a few stores before I caved in and called Shaun.
“Come and do this. I can’t do this. If he needed me to pick out earrings to match his dress…I would be your girl. He needs slacks!”
Shaun then asked me to tell me what we had gotten so far. I told him this really cool black button up shirt and a tie.
“What color is the shirt?” he asked.
“So you got a lighter colored tie?” He sounded like he had such confidence in me.
“um. No. It’s a really dark blue one.”
“That would be great Kristine…if he were in the mob.”
Shaun then showed up and within minutes had picked out a better shirt and a pair of slacks that really good on the boy.
I wasn’t even invited to the shoe store to help pick out shoes to go with this ensemble. I would have probably picked out some great sling backs and a matching purse.
We were excited to see the whole thing put together the night of the dance. With one of the other 13 cameras in the house fully charged we left knowing that we would come home to pictures that weren’t AS good as the ones we could take, but how bad could they be? I mean, really…she’s an adult. It’s a digital camera. You can’t mess things up THAT bad.
This is what we got.
Luckily both Tyler and his girlfriend Nikki go to different schools and she had her homecoming dance this weekend.
We didn’t get to miss the boy running around trying to figure out where everything was. I also didn’t miss this very awesome moment while Shaun was teaching his son how to tie a tie.
I may have missed him teaching Tyler how to tie his shoes, but I get to witness the sweetness of moments like this.
If you didn’t know me, you would think I was a complete idiot as I looked down at my camera and started talking to it, praising it for capturing that shot and promising to give him a nice cleaning and new UV filter and a better bag to protect it from the elements. If you know me, you know I talk to objects as if they understand what I am saying and know I’m not an idiot…just a weirdo.
Yes, after I downloaded these…I kissed the camera.
I might be an idiot.
