Family Pictures

We went to Murray Park yesterday and took some pictures. Seth's parents gave me an early Christmas Present of a tripod and so we experimented. I am pretty sure it was more fun for me than anyone else, but they all tried to cooperate. I got some cute ones of the kids.

This picture was taken in the front of the house, while I was experimenting with the tripod.

Mia was done, almost as soon as we began...she didn't want to get off of the bench to have more pictures taken.

After some shirt misunderstanding, we started taking the pictures too late in the day (Nearly 11). The sun was pretty bright, but I think I can fix this picture if I fiddle with it in PhotoShop.

In most of the pictures, it was either everyone but Gordon looking at the camera or Gordon looking at the camera and everyone else looking at Gordon.

When we finished with the pictures, we let the kids play at the playground. They really had a lot of fun. At one point, Mia sat in this cup like thing and was spinning in circles. I heard, "Help! I can't get out. I can't get out." The more she tried to get out, the faster the cup spun. I stopped her and she was able to get out, but she was very dizzy. She kept getting in it and spinning around.

We decided to go and eat when we finished with the park. On the way, Mia said that she thought she was going to throw up. She was so pale. We stopped at another park and she laid on the grass for a while. Before too long, she was feeling better and we played tag and I watched as some pink crept into her cheeks.

I love these!

I was hoping when you said the bit about the tripod, that your picture would include you and Seth too.

I took some that have Seth and I in them. I will add one of them.

I love it! The colors are great!

Thanks. My critical eye can see a lot wrong with it, but I doubt my family would be willing to give it another go this year...
