We headed to New Hampshire for a weekend getaway to Story Land, and had a chance to gather a handful of the wee cousins on my dad's side of the family in one place for lunch and a photo-op. There may be nothing more challenging than getting 7 small children to occupy the same patch of grass and smile for a camera. I don't think I got one picture of all of them (or even one of them!) looking at the camera or smiling. Luckily, they are all so gosh-darn cute that even when they are distracted and not at all interested in a photo shoot, they are pretty heart-melting.
Here are a few of the rapid-fire clicks I took before the kids all dispersed in various directions:
Brogan, Elijah, Natalie, Kate, Brooke
Kiernan joins the mix....
Natalie starts the running-away stampede
Micah shows up in the corner, Elijah gets a grouchy face on, and they all crouch ready to bolt
