So beautiful and touching! The most wonderful images are the ones we don't plan but only happen when we are lucky enough to capture a special moment like this. It is one that I will remember for a long, long time. Thanks for sharing it. #4313591

Nice capture, Monica. They are adorable. Love the selective coloring. Priceless photo for the family. You should have it blown up and hung on the wall. Sorry to hear about your grandfather. #4314034
