10 Best Family Moments Captured on My Phone

In my family, there were four children and I was the fourth. Given that I was born in the era before camera phones, this means I have approximately 11 photos of my childhood. 

(But if you would like to see the world's most awkward 5th grade class picture, I've got you covered.)

Now I'm a mom with a smartphone and, well, I've got about 1,000 photos I'd be glad to show you at any time.


Even though I have a nice camera, I have to confess that most of my favorite pictures of my kids are the ones I take with my phone. My phone is always with me, making it easy to capture some of the moments of everyday magic that I hope to remember forever, as well as photos that will eventually totally embarrass my kids. 

What are the favorite moments you've captured with your phone's camera?
