I arrived at the Cossick house around 6:45am on a Sunday morning before everyone was awake. Shortly later I started to hear the pitter patter of kids feet running though the upstairs halls. As I made my way upstairs, I found dad being attacked by three kids armed with stuffed animals and pillows and laughing away. The morning swiftly moved to breakfast and getting ready before loading up in the car for church. At church, the kids enjoyed arts and crafts while Elizabeth and Graham attended service. Brooks, the youngest of the three kids, loves to watch the band play the drums, so he got to attend the service for awhile before joining the rest of the kids. After church, we all walked next door for doughnuts!
We made our way back home and the kids spent time playing basketball outside with Graham and riding bikes while Elizabeth made lunch for their trip to the pumpkin patch. Like most kids, Brooks, Mia, and Bantten loved my cameras, so I taught them to take photos with their stuffed animals. I ended up with a ton of stuffed animal photos. Lol. The weather was perfect for the pumpkin patch. The whole family played games, petted animals, ran through the hay maze, and took a tractor ride through the farm after they ate lunch. The swings and petting the animals seemed to be the crowd favorites. The sun was bright and there was little to no shade on the property, but that didn’t stop everyone from having a great time. Once we came back home, it was time for homework, dinner, and getting ready for bed. The pumpkin patch was extremely dusty, so everyone needed a good bath. A classic Cossick dinner of pigs in a blanket, fruit, and other treats was searved up for all before having root beer floats for dessert. To finish off the night, everyone carefully designed and carved their pumpkins before displaying them in front of the fireplace.
Bedtime quickly came and everyone made their way through a consistant trap of toys that littered the floors of the house. Books were read, covers were pulled up, and everyone was tucked into bed with a goodnight kiss. Taking care of my two year old son all day is exhauting and there’s only one of him. Until spending the day documenting the Cossick family, I could only imagne what it would be like with three kids! Nonetheless, it was such an awesome time spending an entire day with Elizabeth and her incredible family for their Atlanta family documentary! I loved being treated like just another member of the family eating doughnuts, going to the pumpkin patch, playing drums, and rough housing while documenting their typical Sunday.
