I got to spend yesterday with my three favorite peeps. And all I really wanted was a good picture with my 3 kids. But that simply was not in the cards for Mother's Day 2012.
Attempt #1. Notice that Luke was not even in this picture. He was too busy throwing money in the fountain in the hotel lobby.
Attempt #2. We tried another spot where he could not see the fountain and he still was not happy.
Attempt #3. This is the best one we got. Notice that Luke is not smiling, but at least he is not crying AND all 3 are looking at the camera.
Attempt #4. Still no smiles from Luke. David has lost interest.
Attempt #5. Maybe outside will be different? No, no it won't.
Maybe next year.
Luke was ALL SMILES when we got to the church nursery (at Will's parents' church).
We did get an excellent picture of Will's mom with all her grandchildren.
