Family pictures

So this afternoon, we decided to get a family picture done in the summertime, something we never done before. Somehow, we've had our family pictures taken in the winter or fall time. Of course, we had to get the dog in some of them!

While Abby did an amazing job taking the pictures, the priceless picture came on my camera courtesy of Andrew, Laura's boyfriend from Michigan. Kudos to Andrew for capturing my family in a family moment that mirrors us perfectly. It is my absolute favorite!
