A Photo Session With Grandchildren

Dear Luke and Leia,

It was so wonderful seeing you guys; too bad the time only allowed us the chance to visit for a short while. The best part was you guys allowing me to take some portrait photos while we visited at our hotel. It is so much more fun having a photo session with grandchildren instead of people we just met! I am looking forward to visiting you again in a few more months.

Luke, you did a good job following my instructions, but did a better job playing in the trees.

Leia, I was never able to understand how you are so outgoing when there was no camera around, but you got so shy during the picture taking.

Next time we will be able to stay for several days and maybe we can go back to the beach or even the Naples Zoo if you want.

Love,

  1. Great to meet Luke and Leia! 🙂 You know I was actually inspired to write letters like this as well. I don’t have children yet, so maybe letters to the future? 🙂

    1. Liz, it’s SO worth it! Not only is it a great memento of your trip, it’s a wonderful way to let your (future) loved ones know that they are already important to you.

    1. Well, that’s a bit of a two-edged sword, Anda. Once they learn to talk it can sometimes be hard to get them to stop! 🙂

      Thanks for the compliment. We think they’re pretty cute, too. Love ’em to bits!
