Family phototime

We all just hate these times when it is necessary to pose in front of a camera and smile. But it was something we couldn't put off any longer (I don't know why people need an up-to-date prayer card. Really!). So we all got somewhat cleaned up and headed down to the river, which is a 5-minute walk from our house. We set up the camera on the tripod and got busy. We were quite a sight, I'm sure, as Mark set up the shot, ran to join us, and then after the picture was taken we five crazies ran to view the photo. It was probably not the ideal time of day as far as lighting goes, but we got something we were all pretty happy about. This is NOT the picture that we chose. We're keeping that one quiet until our cards are ready to go out.

Can't believe I'm saying this...

With the crazy long cold winter that we had, it's weird to be saying that we're HOT!! Sometimes it's nice, and I'm really thankful for the warm, sometimes sticky days, but at night, well that's another story. The kids can't get comfortable, and for some reason the only three fans that we own are in THEIR rooms. Well, at least we have the basement option which is seriously refrigerator-like. Maybe I'll take my pillow down there now.
