Monthly Family Photo: April 2011

It's been a few months since I posted a monthly family photo. I don't really have a good excuse for missing some months. Except that BSD is in/out, in/out. And my whole family now runs whenever I pull out the camera.

I managed to corner them all. Literally. For a brief moment over Spring Break. We were on a picnic in the state park. Camped out at the end of a small bridge to nowhere. They had no choice but to cooperate. Well...to sit still at least.

Of course my favorite photos of this picnic are sans moi. Oh well, hopefully, when I'm gone they'll look back on all of these pictures. Turn to each other and say, "Oh yeah...Mom was there. She must have been. Someone had to have taken these pictures?"

Nothing beats an orange rind smile, does it?

These photos are awesome! I love the idea of monthly family photos.

Dani said...

These are so great! I wanted to do this for 2011. It will have to wait until 2012.

I love the oranges. How could I not?

Kristin said...

Yeah, what a great family photo, and I'm so happy to see you even have your pink baby in there too! I love how you all look so happy...or silly...or combination of both; it really tells a lot about the dynamics of your family without saying anything at all. Whatever you had to bribe them all with was well worth it!

I have to tell you how much your comments over the last couple of weeks have meant to me. I know you of all people really get where I'm at and what I'm going through, so your love and hugs and support meant the world to me. I've even saved some of your messages so I can read them over and over again. And anytime you want to head to Mexico or Hawaii to camp out with the kids and teach them how to live off the land, I'm in! My Mom gave me many gifts, but the gift of really living was her best treasure.
