We did family pictures in our own backyard this year. Both girls were sick, it was cold outside and it just didn’t seem worth the effort to load everyone in the car to drive to a pretty park when our own backyard had a few colorful leaves and our favorite spots to sit. As I was picking my favorite ones I realized we didn’t any of just the girls together and we didn’t get any of just me and Forest. But the ones we did get are precious and I can’t wait to get some printed for our walls and add them to our Christmas card.
These are a few of my favorites. And if you scroll far enough you’ll get to see a few outtakes!
We took these pictures on our 6th wedding anniversary so we got a few pictures of our annual picture, holding the frame with the picture from the year before.
And the outtakes. Because pictures with a 2.5 year old and 5 month old are super easy (said no one ever).
^neither one wanted to look but I might still kinda like this one
And there you have it. A handful of family photos for us to cherish forever and hang on our walls. Maybe next year the kids won’t be sick, we’ll take them when it’s a little warmer and we’ll take them at a pretty park. Or maybe we’ll take them in our backyard again and I’ll hang them on our walls and treasure them just the same.
Until next time — Cindy
