Father's Day gift shenanigans...

Michael left last week to do some CME courses in Minnesota (mostly, I think he got to golf, go to a Twins game, eat at our favorite restaurant, etc!)

And I had the brilliant idea of putting together a little photo shoot of the kids while he was gone. Have you ever wrangled six kids trying to get that perfect shot?? Perfection never happened but the out-takes were hilarious and there was at least one that was print worthy.










One four-year old melt down (he did NOT want to be the top of the pyramid), several grumpy stares off into space, 473 rabbit ears, and 3 tickle fights later (which turned into 17 tackles, 13 half-nelsons and at least 4 screaming children), I think that begging 23 times "please, PLEASE look at the camera and not up your brother's nose" paid off. Michael and my Dad loved their gifts!
