Parental bliss – two children buried in their books
I could not resist taking a picture of this scene during a recent family holiday to Oregon. Our two children engrossed in their books while the Pacific Ocean pounds the Oregon beach. A true peaceful moment amid the chaos of modern parenting. Aside from the camera, I’ve got a beer on the go and the evening meal is being cooked back in the house, so it does not get much better than this.
The girls are reading Inkspell, the second book in the Inkheart Trilogy, by Cornelia Funke (the one on the left) and The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary: How Greg Heffley Went Hollywood by Jeff Kinney (the smaller one on the right). Both books were picked up that day in a small secondhand bookshop in Newport, Oregon.
