While I searched, I figured I could take pictures along the way of my nephew, Ben, who is turning 4 years old in a few weeks. Although he is crazy talkative, he is also very obedient and came along with me while I posed him and tried to get him not to say "cheese." At some point all parents think it is a great idea to teach our kids to saw cheese to get a smile. I think it starts when they are babies, but we regret it for years to come. "Cheese" smiles are very hard to undo.
Along the way, I also took pictures of Benton and Nathaniel together. They are so cute and will do absolutely anything for Yo-Go's.
Emma tried to get in most the pictures as usual. It is beyond her realm of thinking why I would not want her in all the pictures. She loves her cousins so much. We are really blessed with cousins on both sides of the family and Emma doesn't know how good she has it with play mates her age at every family gathering. She lists her cousins all the time and says after each one, "He is my cousin and my friend." 7 out of her 8 cousins are boys and she loves them all.
We even got a few pictures with Stitches, the favorite dog. I took more pictures and have some posted on my photography blog if you want to jump over and see them.
