It had been way too long since I got a good, posed photograph of the kids with their grandparents, so I decided it was time. Right before we left their house for the second half of our mini-vacation. Because planning such a thing just doesn’t work out for us. Well. This is only one reason I don’t pay for professional photos on a regular basis. They only turn out slightly better quality-wise and have only a portion of the character showing through–or at least reality.
