All I wanted is a good picture of The Idiots, and Gracie, posing in the Waggin’ Wagon for posterity.
But there were a couple of rubs:
1. I took the kids out alone, meaning I was both poser (in more ways than one) and photographer; and
2. An open Waggin’ Wagon gate is the universal signal for the kids to scatter. It didn’t matter we had just finished a pretty long walk!
I don’t know how many times the kids jumped out. Sometimes it was just one or a couple, sometimes it was the whole group. 62 pictures later, only 2 plus a cropped one were useable:
This one came out OK. I just wish Marcy’s head was a little higher, and Franken Morty’s shaved head wasn’t showing.
This one would have been adorable if only I hadn’t cut off part of Slugger’s face, and if Gracie and Marcy were looking up.
But if I crop pieces, I came up with this one:
Emmi looks calm and Slugger almost looks intelligent!
I’m not sure what tired them out more; the hike or the repeated jumping in and out of the Waggin’ Wagon and posing for the pictures!
I happened to notice after deleting the bad shots, there are now 3,024 pictures of the kids on my computer alone. That doesn’t include the ones Crabby has.
What can I say, I’m so lucky to be Mom to this particular Hoard! There can never be enough pictures!
