Children at play

Kids. They change your life. Your change theirs. I'm in the middle of my journey with our children, learning the ropes as I go. 
One thing is certain: They make great subjects for photos. Here are some of my favorites.

Summer in Stuttgart. We went to a free outdoor concert series known as the LAB Fest, a three-day event sponsored by an alternative club called the Laboratorium. The kids discovered this little brook down the hill from the venue and explored it.

 In early April of last year we took a walk with our friends, the Krills, up to a playground in the woods above Stuttgart. Fiona and Fynn enjoyed the zip line.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Fiona. I took it last September while riding in one of those twirling barrels at the Trippsdrill amusement park.

They are so cute when they are asleep!

This may be my all-time favorite picture. I took it at Fynn's theater performance last year in July. The "greens" are going to apologize to the "yellows" for having been in a bad mood all morning. Melissa has gathered up the originally rejected flowers that Fynn's group gave them to cheer them up.
The glance, the profiles, the pose, the flowers, the hair! I just love it. It graced the cover of a photo book that I made for their teacher as a thank-you for her two years of patience with the class.
