“I found the Sworl photo framing app in the iTunes app store. I like it because I don’t have a lot of spare time.”

“It was the first nice day after a long, long winter in Minnesota. I took my sons to the park to eat lunch. The boys were so excited to put on shorts and burn off six months of pent-up energy! It was maybe 65 degrees. I told Jack, 7, and Sam, 4, to run around and do whatever they wanted.

“These boys are best friends and worst enemies—they play and fight and argue and then they play and fight some more.

“The floating dock had been pulled out on the side of the lake. The boys ran out to the end and all of a sudden they were sitting still and, in a brief moment of reprieve, hugging it out. I was like, “Ooh, there’s a picture,” and I managed to snap it in time. A minute later, Jack pushed Samuel off the end of the dock—and they were at it again!

“I found the Sworl photo framing app in the iTunes app store. I like it because I don’t have a lot of spare time. I’ve had six or seven photos framed, changing up the sizes and frame colors so they look like a collection created over time.”

“You want your sons to be best friends—sometimes they are, sometimes they aren’t—but in this picture my older two are definitely getting along. The redhead, Jack, about two-and-a-half here, is ‘reading’ to his little brother, who’s about six months old. Of course he can’t really read—my wife propped up a book in our bed for them to look at. This photo’s old now, but I like that it gives a sense of their personalities—Charlie happy, smiling and social and Jack a little more reserved and mischievous.”
