Welcome to #iPPP! Sarah at The Sunday Spill and I want to see your funny, your yummy, your heartfelt, your favorite phone photos of the week. All you need is a blog post containing at least one photo from any phone camera. Link up below!

My friend Elaine from Miss-Elaineous Life wrote a post this week called The Whole Story, with the “behind the scenes” stories of some of her favorite Instagram pictures. Well, I have a lot of those, so I’m totally stealing her idea (with permission).

I love this picture. To me, it screams FULL HEART! FULL HOME!


What’s really going on? Ervin was not supposed to be in the bathroom, because he always gets into everything. Ivy was climbing on the toilet, apparently sticking her toothbrush in the spare toilet paper roll, and Essie was paying more attention to Ivy than her teeth or toothbrush.

This is one of my new favorites. I’m a sucker for any pictures with all four of the kids that really shows their personalities.
What’s going on here? Erv was scaring me half to death on this slide, but climbing up (mostly) skillfully and enjoying the up and down and up and down. The girls were (mostly) helping him by blocking him from falling backwards or sliding down with him when he wasn’t too sure about it, and sliding down the slide while I kept telling them to “STOP MOVING.” Henry was there, completely against his will, because I called him over from playing a game on one of his grandparent’s iPhones when I saw the perfect photo opportunity. As soon as I got it, he went back to his game. 
I love this picture of Erv. His smile, his stance, his little hoodie.

What’s going on with him? He’s facing our house on a (cold) “spring” day. See the white house behind him? That’s grandpa and grandma’s house. He made a run for it, across the grass, as soon as I turned for a second, and all but refused to come home. He climbed grandpa’s “tractors” (riding lawnmowers), and veered in and out the different vehicles while I chased him around the driveway. Repeat three times before I drag him in the house for lunch, kicking and screaming.
This picture is hysterical to me. I can still hear the squeal that she let loose after every big push from grandma and grandpa.
What you don’t see? Ten minutes after this picture taken, and far too long after they should have stopped, she got off the swing, sat down on the picnic table bench, and threw up.
What kind of back stories do your pictures have?
