We went to Michigan last week for a friend’s wedding and decided to make a little family summer vacation from it. On the way, we stopped to visit Ryan’s dad and step-mom and did some Michigan sightseeing. My youngest has been increasingly interested in photography, so instead of using her iTouch to play games, she used it to capture moments along the way. She took over 700 photos!! I love getting a glimpse of life through a child’s eyes. I’m always amazed and inspired by the way a child can see beauty in the things we consider mundane. She stops and takes the time to appreciate and take a photo of something that I would walk past without notice. I also love to see her perspective on the world, she’s always looking up from where she stands. Her world is so big and incredibly small all at the same time.
So, here is a peek at a family trip through a 6 year-old’s eyes — in pictures. I narrowed them down to about a hundred. These photos make me smile when I look through them. I hope they make you smile, too.
