I'm thinking this year of just going with a picture of the boys. One it will be easier and two I don't care to listen to flyboy bitch and moan about taking a picture and mailing it to people. My thought is that if I don't make him be in the picture then he'll actually help, not hinder, the taking of it.
Last year he led the rebellion and things got ugly.
He's still away but for some reason I got it into my head to go march them outside and give it a whirl.
Note to self.... need an extra set of hands.
We tried some in the field, some on a fence, and some by the cows.
Note to self again..... when taking pictures with cows in the background, they WILL poop at some point.
Darn the sun!
I might just put him on my Christmas cards. He stood very nicely the whole time, except of course when he pooped. That might be a bit much for the xmas cards.
The boyos wanted a pic of the poop since it was steaming and well, I'm happy to oblige on the little things in life.
I had a whole plan of shots around the fence....
You can see how well that seemed to work out for us.
This also goes to answer the question that someone without kids might have.... how hard is it to get a group shot of kids in which they are all looking at you.... hard.
Very, very hard indeed.
But with all that being said, I will be redoing my game plan and attacking this again in a day or two. Just enough time to stain treat those white shirts from the grass stains they got wrestling each other.
