While we were at the beach last month, I had an opportunity to spend some time with just Avery. We climbed the Currituck lighthouse together.
I joke with my mom that carrying my camera is like bringing another child along. I hand her my camera and say, “Hold this baby.” It takes some attention to keep it safe, and I want to stop and take photos when I can. This trip to the lighthouse was more about time with Avery than anything else, so I asked her if it was okay if I brought my camera. She said it was fine. I listened when she said, “No more pictures.”
