time passes by...far too quickly

Can you "feel" this image? I took my kids to the park today and as I was watching my daughter swing and my son pushing the swings back and forth I saw this image and hoped it would turn out as I was seeing it in my head. Sometimes how you see things and how they turn out are not the same...but this, yes, this is exactly what I was hoping for and then some. This image to me is very powerful because it's about how time passes so quickly, our kids grow so fast and these moments come and they go...
Don't let these moments pass you by, take the time to capture your children's moments. The smiles, the tears, the laughter, the joy...everything about being a child. Freeze them in time...and what better way to do this than with a picture.

until next time...

Very cool Hayley! I was reading your post and didn't want to look at the photo until I was done to see what you had captured. I was not disappointed at all! (and I never am when I see your photos!)

Let me tell you what I see.
The chain of the swimg is still. There are no children playing because they have all grown up and moved on.
A very touching image Hayley.

Oh Hayley, this is soooo powerful. I have to remind myself to do this, to stop and breathe in all that they are. It won't be long and we will be watching them walk down an aisle in a church, leaving behind all of their innocence. Thanks for this reminder...I am off the spend the day with my kids.
