Our fun little Photoshoot

We had a wonderful Holiday weekend at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
One thing I noticed while there, is that my kids' pictures on Grandma's Grandkids wall are seriously outdated.  I have been meaning to get some new snapshots of my kiddos, but well, life gets busy. I haven't been successful at taking photos at each kids' birthday, with either the weather, the child's grown out hair-do, or the scatterbrained mother being to blame.

Today, I checked portrait taking off of my list. 

We had a picnic lunch at the park,

then walked around downtown, looking for neat backdrops.  
I really liked the red brick of this church. Aubrey loved the flowers.

It is usually difficult to get a picture of Brant, but today he was willing to be charming for a few photos.

Donovan, on the other hand, was having nothing to do with picture taking.  How does anybody get their almost-two-year old to look at the camera and smile!??

Getting a family picture is always a piece of work.  I stopped asking them to smile and look at the camera after about the tenth shot. I would place them where I wanted them, and be happy if they stayed put.
Its fun to see their individual personalities.

I have no idea why I put red socks on Donovan. I mean, its not like I have a huge pile of laundry to do or anything.

So maybe I'm a little biased, but gosh, I have beautiful children!

We walked by this cute little house, and I thought it was perfect! It looked like nobody was home, so we took a few shots. Brant sat for two pictures, then was done. I guess I shouldn't have mentioned anything about the owners coming home.

I have some priceless pictures of my kiddos and we all had a lot of fun...
why on earth did I wait so long to go on this little photoshoot?
