Because we have a new addition to the family, I wanted to get a new family photo with everyone. I was going to pay a friend of mine who did our photos last year, but I thought I'd see if we could get a decent picture before I shell out money. I'm so thankful I didn't pay anyone - not because we got such a great shot without a professional, but because Kyson was such an uncooperative little boy that it would have been a waste of money.
We went up to the fishing pond near our house because it has beautiful scenery and I bought new clothes for everyone. I was so excited and had all these great visuals in my head of how great these pictures would be. Kyson destroyed all of those grandiose ideas. He was staring at the ducks, or the fish, running away, fighting us when we tried to hold him, etc. It was awful. We tried taking different pictures for about an hour and when all was done, I didn't think we had a single salvageable photo. Kris and I were very frustrated, Kodi was hungry and I didn't bring a diaper bag or a binky, and Kyson was in trouble but didn't seem to care. Fortunately, after all that, there was one photo that made it all worth it.
