The Family

About a month ago, we had some pictures taken at a nearby park. It was kind of a crap shoot deciding what day to get them done. I chose one day I was fairly sure Robert would be off work because I figured it would be nice to have him in the family pictures. I really wanted a beautiful sunny fall day with some pretty fall colors and I got it!

In fact, this was just about the last nice fall Saturday in the whole month of October. We lucked out. The boys were semi-cooperative, which was great. It was helpful that I was not the one behind the camera giving the directions. I was very happy with the photographer.

I tried to coordinate the outfits so they would match and had clothes all picked out for Jonah and Isaac. In the end, Isaac chose his own shirt and Jonah flat out refused to wear the new Gap Kids outfit I bought for him and just pulled something out of his drawer.

I love Fall.

Awwww! I love these! I'm so glad you had nice weather...they would not be the same without it! It doesn't even look like it was windy!

Debbie, it was windy. My hair is blowing slightly in that picture. But all the pictures still turned out great.
