Family Photos (Take 1)

A few weeks ago the weather was pushing 80 F and the leaves were starting to change. As happens each year with our family, I decided we needed to make a run for it and get our annual family photos done. It was a bust. The mosquitoes ate us out...but not without me getting a few funny photos (and a couple good ones).  We tried something new and went out to Quarry Park. All that did was just give the mosquitoes more time to eat us.

The trip was a disaster from the start. I forgot a piece to my tripod, so it was useless. I tried to set up my camera and balance it on the stroller all while slapping mosquitoes. Getting my crew into some sort of arrangement proved impossible. We gave up and headed for the parking lot, but I still kept trying along the way.

It was difficult to get Mercy to smile, but when we started singing "Let It Go" (from Disney's Frozen movie), she started singing along...complete with hand motions.

This photo was probably my favorite...if you make it big, you can see the mosquito flying towards his hair. :)

And that was it...time to head for cover!!
