I've been itching to get that boy in a photo booth since forever! Okay, about five weeks. We knew our usual photo booth in Manitou Springs would be out of order until it warmed up since it was at an outdoor location and the ink always froze. I also knew there was one inside a quirky pizza place but the one time we went our photo strips had big black streaks down the middle and were pretty fuzzy. I finally decided that was better than waiting another six weeks before we could guarantee the first booth would be working and was pleasantly surprised that they'd fixed the streaky problem!
It captured his classic side eye quite well.
Ruby was close by for his strip and photobombed the third frame. Then we took our own and she wanted the sticky hand that she'd procured from a quarter machine to be in the first frame with us (see below).
I have a growing collection of photostrips on our fridge that hold such fond memories because most of them were taken during a special part of life. One from the time my family came out for Sebastian's birthday the first summer after our move, one from a few days before Brett deployed to Kuwait for four months, one announcing our pregnancy, and most recently one of the four of us on Valentine's Day with Smith taking up a lot of room in my belly.
I took them all down this afternoon and decided to write down the details so I never forget which year something happened or how old the kids were. I'd like to scan them all into a few art journal pages as a visual reminder of our time here in Colorado and all of the things that have happened in the past two years.
