{Captionless} Mother’s Day Moments

Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day celebrating the Mothers in your life. I got to speak with both my Mom and my Meme first thing this morning.  We spent the day on the water and I actually brought along my camera this time. After scrolling through my photos tonight (and finding a live hermit crab that someone put in my camera bag?!) I am reminded of something.  Photos really don’t need captions.  With social media, we feel the need to put some type of caption on each Instagram shot– when often times it really isn’t necessary.

 

Take these photos for instance.  This is us arriving at The Coast at dinner time on a Saturday night with 5 children and 3 dogs.  Yes, that is lighter fluid on the shelf.

And this is us, 15 hours later, walking outside (at the beach) for the first time since arriving at the beach. Post dinner, dinner clean up, bath, bedtime, musical beds, breakfast, meltdowns, getting dressed and yet another mealtime.

See what I mean, no captions necessary.  Happy Mother’s Day Mom and Meme! Love  you.
