I was hanging out with some of my most favorite men last night, and I drove over in Old Blue specifically so we could take some fun pictures. It's been beautiful weather, and so it was no real surprise to me that all four of them were shirtless and barefoot when I arrived. (They are known for their naked dance parties, which now include the youngest little mister, who copies literally everything his big brothers do.)
First off, let me say that trying to photograph four little boys aged one through six by yourself is very much like herding kittens, and I was laughing the entire time I was trying to repeatedly corral and coax poses out of them, counting heads to be sure I hadn't lost anyone since the last shot.
In the end, I actually managed quite a few precious shots and I just knew you would want to see them.
(You saw this shameless Gramma Cupcake brag post coming at "naked dance parties", didn't you?)
Here is my favorite picture. Being the fourth of four boys, the baby has pretty much decided he needs to holler all of his words, and proudly yells out "Cheeeeeee!" every time he thinks you're taking his picture.
(I know, right? It melts my heart too!)
Oh yeah, I am seeing plenty more photo-ops happening with all of the grands and Old Blue this summer.
