What he said!
I'm probably one of the older guys lurking on this thread, all my "kids" that are your kids ages, are my grandchildren. In my experience I like looking back on some great shots I've made over the years, but the shots that really count are the ones of my boys growing up. My biggest regret is that I didn't take more snapshots of them.
It's sad that "snapshots" seems to have become a derogatory term.
