The staycation is going splendidly. Chronological pictures forthcoming.
Truth is, fun is time-consuming and it keeps one (or nineteen..as the case may be) quite busy.
I have taken hundreds of pictures in the last three days, but these two are classic illustrations of family life.
Here's what you see:
And here's what you don't see happening just moments before:
These are not staged- and I think it's hilarious how even the babies seem to know the difference between 'waiting for the picture to be taken' and HAVING the picture taken.
In defense of those pictured who seem to be in agony - this was about our 20th attempt...in 100 degree weather....before lunch...and before anyone was allowed to get in the water.
And after all that, we're not even using this one as our Official 2009 Aren't We Amazing? Family Picture. You'll have to come back later in the week to see that one :)
But if you want to see amazing, take a look at these cute dudes, with their cute aunts.
I gave each of the grandchildren a bucket with some GrandMama Goodies in them. Here are Elijah and Thomas with theirs (I guess I should've told Eli the swim diapers were not edible.)
Many more amazing staycation photos to come...as soon as I get another break from the fun!
