Raquel, this is so much more than a just a snapshot. Yes, it is a moment in time, but for any one who cares to look into the image rather than at it we see a family of children who show us their happiness. We can feel it; we can smile at number two son's goofiness. We can feel the protectiveness of big sister. We can feel the warmth and caring they all have for each other.
Thank you for sharing this with us. May you and your family continue to be richly blessed Raquel.

Raquel, I totally agree with all Pete's remarks about this family portrait image of yours - this really IS "so much more than just a snapshot"!! We really CAN see how much "warmth and caring they all have for each other"...and it's patently obvious HOW PROUD you are of your 'brood'!! Thanks so much for sharing!! :o) #7014709
