Minnesota Vacation 2012 Highlights: Family PhotosFriday, January 18, 2013
When we were making plans to go to Minnesota, one of the things that I really wanted to do was set up a time to get some updated family photos taken. And then I talked with my mom, who echoed that thought, in wanting some nice photos taken of us (my mom, dad, brother, etc), so we looked into getting them all done together. SO glad we decided to do this, and made time to get them done. I contacted a friend from high school, that I knew did photography, and we were thrilled to meet up and spend a morning with him.
Eliana, who we have realized is very
shy slow-to-warm and reserved, took a little bit to get used to Tom, and then would only give him her goofiest faces. I guess I taught her well in the be-silly department?! And of course, my always-on-the-go son was a ham for the camera, and had us in stitches the entire time!
We haven't had a decent family picture of my mom, dad, brother, and I in quite some time, so those are very special - and I am loving the ones of my parents, and the one of my brother and I! Oh, and the last photo? The "stiff wind"?! My dad has always done this...uh, special trick...for as long as I can remember. And in high school, I took it upon myself to learn. Then my brother figured out how to do it. Pretty sure my dad has been proud to know that he passed along this fun (and really, not terribly hard to do...it's all about leverage, people...) trick to his kids, and we just HAD to get a photo of it! Too priceless for words there, for real!
