Please tell me this happens to everyone with toddlers.

Last month we traveled to Arizona and California for our big summer trip. The biggest past of that trip was a multi-family excursion to Disneyland. Todd and I had decided that we would put together a photo album of our trip since the twins are young and may not remember anything ever from the trip. We took pictures of every square inch of the park, every parade that ran through the park, fireworks, and individual rides. With a few hundred pictures deleted we still had upon our return over 600 photos of which we needed to narrow down to 200 photos for our album that we picked up at World Of Disney. One important thing for me for this album was to include one picture of our family. Just one. I didn't think I was asking too much when I asked various attendants at the park to take our families photo. Apparently, I had no idea what a huge task it would be to get one decent photo of our family. Below is the best of what we got.

Sad huh?

Before we came home from the desert we had a photographer take our families photo. Needless to say, even he couldn't get a decent photo of the four of us.

Let's just say, I can't wait until Christmas photo time.

Yes! It does happen with everyone! At least nowadays we have digital cameras. Could you imagine taking all those pictures with a 35mm and then having to print all of them? UGH!

I think you guys have some adorable ones from the family session. They aren't all posey, but they are real and I happen to think that's better!

If it makes you feel any better there is not one toddler in our family but still I don't feel like we have a family shot where everyone looks "normal". Wesley refuses to smile and Nate is just goofy.

Now that I think about it, maybe that is normal for us. Surly and goofy. Nice.

Ha! We don't even try to get an all inclusive shot anymore. Looks like you had fun though.

By the way, Julie failed her office glucose test too and had to go get the three hour test done. They haven't called with results, so we're taking that as a good sign.
