Of course, that is really not what this post is about.
While photographing his cupcake, which is a requirement anytime you are going to pay over $2.00 for a baked good, he put his little index finger in the air in that funny way he does. He then announced, "I have an idea! Let's take a family picture." When I said, my arm isn't long enough with this lens, he said, "with the thingy."
Of course! The thingy! So we got out the thingy. Set the camera up and got two shots. Well worth the trouble of setting up the thingy because can this kiddo see great light or what?!
Not focusing on the things I'd change about it (and me) but just loving it for the moment captured! And the cape? Yep, as soon as the tripod came out he insisted that he needed to get his cape as well. Perhaps just memories of this day?!
