In Which We Attempt Another Family Picture

At some point in my life, I think I may need to acknowledge that we're just not going to be the kind of family that smiles and looks at the camera. At least not all at once. It's time to get on with my life, and just choose a picture anyway, right??


I choose this one:

Maybe I should at least try to center it before I print it, yes?

Happy Weekend, friends! May your pictures be centered and may your children always look at the camera and smile! (It's an old Irish blessing. Or, close to one at least.)

Our Fellow Idiots

We might have undertaken this camping trip on our own, but honestly... I doubt it. There's something about making a stupid decision WITH a group of people that you really like that makes it seem less stupid.

I feel extremely lucky to have found friends here that are willing to do things like take EIGHT SMALL CHILDREN CAMPING IN THE WOODS, OMG, HOLY CRAPPER, WHAT WERE WE THINKING?!? HOW DID THIS EVER SEEM LIKE A GOOD IDEA?

Thanksfully, we're stupid enough that it DID seem like a good idea. And, in the end, it actually WAS a pretty good idea. So maybe we're not idiots after all! Maybe?

Either way, this is the last batch of camping pics; our fellow idiots (and dear friends) IN THE WOODS WITH EIGHT SMALL CHILDREN, OMG, WHAT WERE WE THINKING?!?:
