Pictures...we really do take them!

S0, we haven't really fallen off the edge of the world, although my blogging has. In between work, kids, and house work there doesn't seem to be time to breath. However, over the past few weeks we have taken some fun outings, and taken the camera with us. Here are the results.

We went hunting driftwood yesterday, and there were some great photo ops. Okay, I admit it. Someday I want to really study photography, but it the meantime, you get what you pay for!

I can't believe how hard it is to get them all with their eyes open at once, let alone looking in the same direction!
Then, a week ago, we had a picnic at a nearby park with my family.

(Joy wasn't having fun at the moment.)

And don't tell Mom I posted this, she'd kill me. She only allowed the picture since Joy was the photographer. That's how we got her out from under the slide.

Paul is somewhat fascinated with sticking out his tongue lately. I think most of the pictures I got of him feature his tongue.

There is a yearly tulip festival here. It is quite gorgeous. Too bad the kids don't hold still!

What did I say?

So, that's us. I know, there are twice as many of me as you have ever seen. I have decided that I don't want my kids to forget what I look like!

Yay, yay, yay!!! I was thinking that you must have fallen off the edge of the earth. I'm glad that you didn't! I LOVE the picture of the kids all looking through the driftwood. That is so cute! And I also love the picture of you and Joy. It's good to see pictures of you, too. I miss your pretty face and you and Joy look so much alike! It's strange to see how big your kids are. Can you believe our youngest kiddos are almost three already?
