i had a paint fight with wendy and some friends at our GoPro reunion and wanted to try it with my family.
it was quite an experience.
it was the opposite of everything we have told them before.
which made it hard to accept your brother throwing paint right in your face.
or your mom!
but they caught on quickly.
and it got fun.
and super messy.
why do boys always have to tackle?
annie was overwhelmed.
she was probably about two years too young for this.
she had a really hard time with paint on her face, on her mouth and near her eyes.
it was a lot for a seven year old...she did great for what we put her through.
tyler threw the last jar of paint on us all at the same time.
she hit her limit.
oh my goodness i sure do like that guy.
i told wendy i have always wanted pictures in the sunflowers.
even better covered in paint.
she ran into the restaurant and pointed to herself and said "oh yeah!!!! OH YEAH!"
she is such a goofy little girl.
cracks me up ALL. DAY. LONG.
i chose to wait in the car for our pizza.
thank you Blue Lily for a super FUN way to do family pictures.
my kids will always remember it.
and i doubt we will ever do normal pictures again.
this was too fun.
have you gotten on the Blue Lily photo schedule?
they go all over the world.
asia, coasta rica, new zealand, australia, holland, canada, london, NYC and all over the united states.
they even came through KANSAS!!!
family pictures are a way to freeze time.
a special treasure of your kids staying that size in your mind forever.
because you never know what a gift those pictures will be....your family right now....just as we are.
that sounds a little dramatic but it's the truth.
capturing your family together is important.
even if it's in a field of weeds throwing paint on each other.
