Well this might be Donny's favorite picture, because this was his idea of a great family photo :)
I thought this was cute how tickled Olivia and Donny got over jokingly pushing each other over the edge of the deck railing into the water.
This is a cute picture of Amber and Sydney. What's cute is Sydney's "I'm innocent" look - this was seconds after the silly face picture that I featured on my Contest Blog entry. I read a good article the other day by my wedding photographer, Tamara Lackey. She was talking about how important "the Mom" is in the role of booking and organizing a family photo session. So a huge thank you goes out to Amber and all of the other moms that put the work into getting a family picture!
Here is Olivia working the camera; she also picked the location and the pose.
And here is wild thing Sydney. I will never forget this moment of Sydney flying up the driveway (clear the roads in 11 years when she gets her license) in her 4-wheeler, "Saving the Day" by saving the turtle from Brody, the puppy. Yes that is the turtle in the brown paper bag, yes she spontaneously held that turtle high and proud, and yes she was going really fast even though you can't tell from the picture (I told y'all they could have scared the turtle to death!).
I also told you, she doesn't stay still for long....
And last but not least, you can't leave out Champy, their oldie goldie retreiver.
