Pictures of Life with Kids

Submitted by on Wednesday, 24 September 20085 Comments

A great fatherhood blogger, Tyler at Building Camelot, has started a project called “Pictures of Life With Kids: Parenting Behind the Scenes.” I think it is a great idea, and this post is my contribution.

To give you some background, the guidelines for the project are:

1.  The photos should showcase anything that relates to you children or relates to life with children.

2.  The photos cannot contain any live faces (but photos with pictures of faces are allowed).

3.  Post the pictures on your site.

4.  Link the post back to Building Camelot so that entries can be tracked and that others can read about the project.

When looking for photos for this project, I realized that we rarely take photos without one of our kids’ faces in them.  This helped to make this entry an interesting challenge to put together.  I feel the following photos illustrate our life with kids really well.  Here goes:

Our sling

Our sling

This first photo shows our daughter in her sling.  This is everyday life with a baby for us, because we use our sling to take our daughter nearly everywhere we go with her.  In this photo, she is not fully wrapped, but taking a break to have a drink.

Climbing at the playground

Climbing at the playground

This photo is a snapshot of part of a climbing wall at a playground that we often go to.  Life with kids means frequent trips to the playground!  Smarty Pants loves to play there and climb up and over everything in sight.

Kite Flying

Kite Flying

What would life with kids be without taking them out to fly a kite?  This is something we started doing since we have had kids, and Smarty Pants loves it.

The shallow end

The shallow end

Life with kids in the summer means going to the swimming pool on hot days.  When you have kids, you often find yourself sitting in the shallow water, as in this image, rather than swimming around or diving in the deep end.

The petting zoo

The petting zoo

The petting zoo is a popular place for kids, and life with kids wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the petting zoo and petting some baby lambs.

There you have it!  I hope you enjoyed my entry in this project, and encourage you to check out the project and create your own entry as well.

Feel free to leave a comment and share your own special ideas about life with kids!
