A picture

 We had this picture taken last summer while on vacation...note the framed picture of Darren that Madeline and Rhiana are holding. It just didn't seem like a family picture without including him :)

 We now have the picture framed and hanging in our home. My mom had a great idea of taking a picture of Darren wearing HIS red shirt and holding the framed picture.

It was TOO close to nap time AND Darren wasn't sure it was a "great idea"...

It was 50 over the weekend...so I figured "why not an outdoor picture?"
 

We first tried in a chair...but he was lost behind the picture...


 Then we tried having Darren hold it...but the picture was kind of heavy for his little arms...


 Then we tried having him rest it on the ground...which made him smile (just not for the camera!)


Then he got cold...so we tried with a sweatshirt on...


Then baba encouraged "rough housing" or pretending to bash baba with the picture...

(which got the BEST photo in my opinion!)


It also produced a funny face...


Then we abandoned the picture all together...and got kind of a neat photo with our Christmas cross in the background (it is covered with clear lights and sits up by the street).

Oh well...it was fun anyway - and Darren took a great nap afterwards :)

Blessings, Sandy
