Portraits to buy time

I have SO much to say and it's driving me crazy that I haven't had time to say it! We've been really busy, mostly with good stuff, and I am still super tired from getting very little sleep. I feel like we're just "getting by," doing the things that MUST be done, and nothing else. That's all relative, of course.

Topics for future discussion:
-A bout with croup.
-Sleepless children times THREE.
-Lots of fall fun, including field trips, scarecrows, pumpkins.
-A trip to Oma and Opa's.
-Housekeeping standard-lowering.
-New camera!

But for today...I have been coveting outdoor family portraits for a while now, but when I look at photographers who do such things and see the price: OUCH. So Brian has a photographer friend for whom he has done some pro bono work (Brian does websites like his as a side job, if you ever need such a thing), and he offered to meet us at a park and take some portraits.  He doesn't specialize in portraits, but he has kids and he knows how to work a really nice camera. Perfect!

It's hard to choose, but here are some of my favorites.

Oh! How fun! They are so cute! I'm telling you, Katie looks so much like my sister did when she was little. Thanks for sharing.

Love the outdoor setting and I feel your pain on finding time for anything that isn't essential. I usually get my online time late at night but haven't been able to do it in recent weeks! These pictures are great and all the kids are so adorable...but that little baby! Can I come squeeze him?!

These are awesome! Love the diversity of the angles too!

It was fun to see Brian a couple times this week. Before we move, you and the kids should come visit! (As soon as the house is not hazardous!)
