The really impressive thing about the pictures to me is that they turned out as well as they did for as out of sorts as our kiddos were that day. Madelyn, who usually can't stop smiling all day long, woke up with a stuffy nose she had caught from her brother that day and was really tired since she didn't sleep very soundly. So she never smiled once the whole shoot. Then, Patrick was a little weirded out by a stranger taking pictures of him and wanting him to pull a wagon around or sit on a bench. Once he loosened up a little he did what he usually does when he's in a new place and got very curious about everything and just wanted to inspect it all. In case you've never seen someone inspect something, I'll tell you that there's usually not a lot of smiling involved. The photographer was awesome though and took a ton of pictures and promised us there would be good ones. And darned if she didn't know what she was talking about. Here are a few of our favorites:
I love her toes in this one
Pointing and Talking - what else?
