I’m always trying to capture the best scenery shot and get everyone to smile (no fake smiles allowed). Unfortunately, that doesn’t always work out. This week’s Photo Friday post is one of those moments. We were on a hike at Rodeo Beach in Marin County — see my list of favorite kid-friendly spring excursions around the Bay Area — and there was no way I was going to get Devon to smile for this fabulous view shot. In fact, he was in the middle of telling us how exhausted he was from our 10-minute hike up the hill — his moment of exasperation is clear.
In restrospect, I’m loving the photo because it provides a rich memory of our experience and what it can be like to hike with a 6-year-old! For more Photo Friday posts, visit Delicious Baby.

I might feel the same after a long hike 😆
If I had a nickel for every picture I had of the kids either a) yelling “smile” with horrible frozen looks on their faces or b) looking anywhere but at the camera I would be a wealthy, wealthy woman.
I love that you can tell so much about the story from his posture!
Great story! The photo is far richer for it. 🙂
I grew up in Marin. Makes me homesick! I hope to bring the kids some day, just trying to find an excuse to get up there.
Stunning view. And lucky for me, it’s local. I need to get up there!
Gorgeous shot. It looks like my shots. my son always making goofy face expressions:)
Photo Friday, 2000 Crocodiles… Where?
Great photo! Our little guy does the same thing…it is so exhausting being 4!
Beautiful scenery. I’m sure you’ll be showing him this photo in the future and having a laugh about it.
I have a lot of “those” shots in my photo library as well. Beautiful scenery though. 🙂
