Time for Family Pictures? Use These 4 Tips to Get the Perfect Shot

Look for a Team

Dresses

Most summer dresses rarely go out of style, but there are some models and prints that you should avoid this summer. If you own a Club dress, you should get rid of it as soon as possible, as it is unlikely that it will ever come back in style again. Bandage dresses are also not recommended this season, although you can keep them, as they might make a comeback in the following years. Try to avoid tight dresses altogether, and instead opt for flowy flower dresses, or for elegant pinstripe dresses. Gingham check prints are also very hot this season, and so are bold colors like yellow, fuchsia or neon blue. If you have outdated dresses that you are still attached with, you can try to update them with belts, or you can try to wear them in an unconventional way like paired with a masculine jacket. If you want to invest in new models, opt for polka dot prints, shirtdresses, baby dolls, and oversized dresses.

How to Assist Grandma and Grandpa in Their Old Age

When your family is tight-knit, it can be difficult to watch grandparents age and become less capable of caring for themselves. One way to make the process easier for the entire family is to schedule times when each person can help out elderly members. For instance, one person can visit each Tuesday and help decide what groceries are necessary to get through the week and take a trip to the store if you do not live in the same home. Other ideas include finding ways to keep the older members of the family active and socializing.

Spend Time with Them

When grandma and grandpa are sitting at home alone for days on end, they will be very lonely. A routine will help them look forward to visits, and it will give the rest of the family a schedule to stick to so that there is no confusion. You might do a few chores around the house, go for the grocery run, fold some laundry together, or read a chapter or two in your grandparent’s favorite book as they get ready to nap to show them that you care and they are not alone. Integrated Family Community Services says this is an excellent way to show older family members that they are important in your life.
