A little two year old quickly escaping from the family pose!! (As you can see, he was quite pleased with himself as he darted back in front of the camera!) I can't decide which expression is funnier..his or his parents! :o)

Thanks everyone! Every time I see this picture I just crack up! This little guy was so full of energy... like he was going to burst! I even love how his little fists are clenched because he was so excited.
The baby is not even 3 months old yet so I was surprised to see her looking up at her daddy so intently!
The family thought this was so funny. However, there are some other hilarious ones too... driving his little fire truck through his mom's hair while he was "supposed" to be standing behind her! :o) #1541616

This is priceless!!! I live for these moments ~ I would rather snap this shot than set up 100 perfect traditional family poses. This is probably so representative of their lives at this point in time; I'm sure they wouldn't trade it for the world. A BIG CONGRATULATIONS on hitting the moment perfectly. #1739476
