Father's Day 2010 Photo Shoot

Father's Day 2010 was a busy day for us! We met up with my parents and grandparents at Pokagon State Park in Angola, IN for a picnic. Was a lovely day and it was nice to sit and visit. Then we headed to a near by log cabin pavilion to take some pictures. It's always a trick when you're using your own camera to get a good picture especially with a baby. Notice my hand out to my side. Well, I held onto a limb of dried leaves and shook them infront of Benaiah to get him to look forward, then last minute, I would drop the leaves, hoping that we caught him looking towards the camera. This was about our only good shot of him not looking behind us. It worked I guess.
Here we all are: Jonathon, Christi, Benaiah- 1 year, Josiah- 4, Diella- 6, Alegra- 8, my dad, Dan, my mom, Deb, and my grandparents (my dad's folks), Dean and Jeanette.

I don't think my granparents knew what they were in for because after pictures on our way back to the cars, they were quite tuckered out and ready to go home. They were great sports though and we captured some good moments.

My parents with the children. We had more parties to go to that day so we wasted some time at the nature center and then let the children play at the park for a bit before heading on to the next party.
My lovely little family. Who would have guessed that I would have been blessed so much by such great children and a wonderful husband! God sure is faithful even if we don't deserve it!
