Inappropriate Photo Op?
I am the family historian and photograph all aspects of our lives- the good & the bad, the appropriate & not-so-appropriate...
I believe the girls were 2 and 4 at the time this picture was taken. We had gone with my mother to the cemetery in Russellville to visit her sister's grave on this particular Memorial Day. Of course, I wanted to record this moment.
Sydney, even at age 4, was fully aware that this was not something the typical mother requests of her daughters.
It took several minutes of cajoling and coaxing, but I finally got my photo.
Sydney, however, had the final say on the subject...
"I'll sit here, but I'm not going to smile."
