The 5 Minute Project is such an awesome blog, and I really love looking at all the images.(See the post of Owen eating lunch here) One morning after my trip to NY, we came in from the park and had lunch. Inspired by the project, My camera was not too far away so I brought it to where I was eating and snapped a few photos. I didn’t move or change anything – I just took photos of simply 5 minutes. Once I got a chance to look at what I thought was just an everyday lunch, the photos brought tears to my eyes because of just how many memories they captured just by picking up the camera at lunch and not moving anything. I had just returned from the Pinkle Toes Workshop Reunion in NY where I had taken a photo with Spiderman in Times Square while I was there and e-mailed to my mom to show Owen. So, of course, I had to bring back all things Spiderman. It had just been Mother’s Day/my birthday so there were flowers and cards from my boys sitting on the table. I was taking care of Harrison when we first came in so he ate the rest of his lunch first (notice the sandwich still sitting there) You can see the baby monitor, too…in one of the images, I see the baby laundry in the background – ha! The Jake and the Neverland Pirates placemat really needs to be thrown out but he just won’t part with it. ….The kitchen table scratched and worn from all our art projects. Just love the story that just a few images in 5 minutes can tell, and I know I will love looking at these images of our everyday life years down the road.
