Just a few more pictures from my trip last weekend to Mizzou. Here's my dh snooping into someone's private writings, while patiently waiting for me to get on with the photo-taking, already! (He's probably posing; he LIKES me to take his picture, but doesn't quite want to admit it!)
More of the campus. I know there's an interesting, mind-boggling, awe-inspiring backstory to these columns. . . but I forgot it. Probably heard it during one of those EXHAUSTING college tours where you (I) just can't quite walk as fast as all those feisty little tour guides, who are walking BACKWARDS, for God sakes!
And here's my dh and ds still waiting for me, having one of those interesting father-son conversations, concentrating intently. . . probably about sports.
Actually, one of my favorite photo ops is catching two of my family members interacting unawares of the camera. Two images in my mind (and how I would have loved to have captured them!) were of my dh and oldest, very tall, son. I came around a corner in a grocery store, and my 14 year old, who now towered above his dad, must have been misbehaving, and was getting lectured by his dad. My son was looking down all sheepish, at his dad, and my husband was looking sternly up at him, pointing his finger in that very classic "you're in trouble" way. He might have become a "big" boy, physically bigger than his dad, but dad was still boss. It was so cute!
Another, similiar, wonderful image--wish-I-had-it-on-film was one time my very affectionate older son, again towering over his dad, reached down and wrapped him arms around his father, gave him a big bear hug, and lifted him off his feet!
Again, so cute! And they're all (oldest son, younger son, and dh) such great guys!
