Yesterday I found the perfect tree down by our city lake. It was gorgeous. Gigantic. Downright beautiful. The location couldn't have been more ideal for a photo shoot I had with Miss C (which I was be sharing with you shortly).
And since I STILL don't have ONE picture of our family hanging on ANY of the walls in our home (how embarrassing is that?!) I decided it was going to happen today, no matter what. The picture, that is. And it just had to be in front of that tree.
So I called Aaron and asked if he could meet us at the tree right at 5 tonight. A friend of ours was going to meet us there to snap the shot. So there we were, waiting for him, the two older girls donning their new dress & skirt I recently made, hair done, blah blah blah, but the clouds began rolling in, and the wind began to pick up a tad. Out of desperation and fear that the clouds would begin dumping rain on us before we got our picture, we asked a couple of joggers running by if they'd mind snapping the shot. All they had to do was push the button on the camera since I already had it on a tripod with all the settings ready to go.
Thankfully they agreed, and luckily photoshop helped lighten and brighten it up some!
I'll be having this printed tomorrow! YAY!! One of my walls will no longer hang its head in shame. Finally.
And here's a bonus pic where we're getting all kissy-kissy. What a hunk my hubby is. And check out Miss J's hair... it's CURLY! Something my sis-i-law discovered a couple months ago after applying mousse to her wet hair. I've always wanted a baby with curly hair. So cute.

p.s. Sure enough, 3 minutes into the photo shoot the rain came a-tumblin' down!
