Thanks to the inlaws for a really enjoyable Saturday!
We all met in the city, had lunch and took the children down to the Botanical Gardens for a play. It was a photo opportunity that could not be missed. The first photo of Grandma and Pop with all seven grand children. Of course, it will be obsolete when Grandchild #8 is born in a few months time, but that's a challenge we will face then.
For now it was enough effort getting seven children in a photo! One was hungry and out of her routine, one was sick, one was slightly overwhelmed at the cacophony of cousins, one was shy and three were exhuberant to see each other. Suffice to say, getting them all wrangled into one spot was a challenge, and after about ten shots, this is the best I came up with. Maybe one of the other two cameras yielded better, but I am happy. I laughed to see how every single photo had something going on - face pulling, squirming, yawning and blinking all over the place!
It was such a pleasure to see everyone, though, and I hope that we'll get to do it again soon!
