Generations.

Might I share with you a little of what I love? A little of why my heart aches to go back to Brazil as often as possible? This..
Some of my mother’s uncles, my grandfather (farthest right), daddy, and mother’s brother in law and brother (farthest left and third from left to right respectively.) This was on the Brazilian father’s day hence the photos of all the dads.
This is Lucinda. She and my mother were friends during second grade and after that year they hadn’t seen each other since. Lucinda continued living in the same town they grew up in and mother left to accompany dad all over the place where his job took him. Then this year after 38 years apart they were finally able to meet again and catch up. It was pretty sweet and so very cool! 🙂
So many aunts, uncles, cousins (and a big part is missing because people were passing by all day, the pictures register those that stayed around for photos).
My grandparents and their two daughters.
Family reunions – I’m lovin’ it. 
Did you have time for family reunions this summer? When do you usually get together? Do you think it’s a pain or do you enjoy it? Enjoy it for those of us who wish we were close enough to have reunions more often, please!

Humor Me Friday Family Photo Session Edition.

Instead of doing a Humor Me Friday installment this week, I was going to put up new family photos that we took in the backyard. Apparently now I’m doing both. You see…family photos is notorious for 1. stressing everyone out
2. taking forever to get a good one
3. filling up memory cards with photos and getting three decent ones at best
4. making it hard to love your siblings
5. produce photos you will laugh at and they will not, and vice-versa.
So below I present to you only three of the many out-takes from our family photo session.
But whatcha gonna do, right? 
We’re thinking maybe this one is the one we’ll keep:
or this one
Meh, we’re cute when we want to be. 🙂
What happens during your family photo sessions? Do you take them regularly? Do you have a professional do them?
