My Funny Valentine

My funny Valentine 
You indulge me. 
In my attempts to catch our sons in the act of jumping I ended up snagging only a few good ones of Jacek and none of Aidan.
I became frustrated.
So, you my funny valentine, tell me to go and do a few jumps and you will take the pictures.
Then you hand the camera back.
"Let me try", you say.
After the first shot you run back and we view the captured jump.
We marvel over the cuteness of Aidan because he is smiling even though we can't see his face.
You are not happy with that jump, my funny valentine.
"Aww, my head got cut off.  Let me try again."

This time the jump is awesome and I capture it.
We laugh and laugh (we sure can laugh) over the awesomeness of the jump but also in the captured nonchalant pose of our cat.

"You know how you stand and let Daddy jump over you?" You say to Jacek
"Here, stand here.  Daddy will jump over you."

And just like that my idea to capture the boys jumping has turned into a full on photo shoot of YOU, my funny valentine.

"Ok, ok I say, I think I've taken enough." 

"Ah, c'mon just a few more. I have an idea"  

You see, I just don't think you can help yourself.
So, I took a few more.
Happy Valentines Baby....

My Funny Valentine.
