uncle grant praying for tanner and for us as his parents
tanner and his daddy during worship
after dinner, mom/grammy insisted we take a family picture...yup, in the parking lot. so we decided to appease her...since it was mother's day weekend and all. what was i thinking when i gave the camera to josh and suggested he be the photographer?!? well, the pictures say it all. it was a disaster waiting to happen-josh with the camera (um yes he's crazy) and my family (um yes they're crazy too). so here's what we got...oh yes, a few crazy pics but nothing worth framing...or really anything blog-worthy but i thought they were hilariously funny and representative of 1-josh and 2-my family.
take 1: i am sticking out my tongue; lance looks like he's about to spit; my dad is apparently still chewing his dinner; taylor-"what, who me?!"; and poor brian-he apparently is thinking "what the heck?!?!"; clearly mom is the only one ready for a picture
take 2: yes, josh was kneeling on the ground. why? i have NO IDEA! and since josh was on the ground, lance decided he should bend down, making him look shorter than me. sadly this is the best one we got...maybe it'd be good if there was a skyline or something interesting in the background!
take 3: i'm cracking up laughing (probably at something josh did), tanner looks thrilled about taking another picture and mom's hair. yea, mom's hair...no more explanation is needed as to why this picture will never be framed.
take 4: at this point josh was acting like the paparazzi. i couldn't keep a straight face, lance was clearly having lots of fun with josh, taylor is laughing and mom decides now to take off her purse?! cause maybe that'll help??
take 5: yup, i'm still laughing and tanner isn't even close to looking or smiling at the camera. oh yea, and the binky in grant's pocket is just great!
take 6: yup, still laughing. and apparently it's contagious since dad's laughing too. and it looks like josh thought the shadow on the left should fully be included in the picture...or he was just going for an off-centered look.
take 7: yup, it got funnier. and apparently dad/ipop turned into a pirate. aaaaarrrrrrrrrhhhhhhh!
clearly a family photo op failure. and sadly these were the only pictures i got-somehow gigi and pops, poppa, uncle mark, chris and kristin, anna, audrey and ellery avoided the camera.
