Family Picture?

My dad informed me a week ago that he needed a famliy picture of the 4 of us sometime before Aug. 8th. I thought "sure, I'll find one". Then I realized that there are NO pictures of the 4 of us. Not a one. EVER. Here I am, all about the memories, with no picture of my little family all together. Pathetic, right? So we had to ask someone to take a quick, very unprofessional, very uncoordinated one yesterday at Bryan's mom's house. And considering the circumstances, they didn't turn out as horribly as I thought they would.
It's so sad that this is the first picture of the 4 of us together - Mya turns 1 in 11 days. What can I say - I'm just too busy taking pictures of the kids by themselves, they're much cuter than me and Bryan anyway.

Bryan trying to get Mya's attention somewhat near the camera by snapping

If you look closely, you can see me holding down Lauren's dress with all of my might. Apparently she thinks it's appropriate to flash her Dora panties for family pictures. It is soooo not.

I think this was the best one of the bunch, sadly

Bryan looks like he's the only one even remotely paying attention. I'm too busy talking (shocker), Mya's too busy looking at the ground, and Lo is too busy trying to figure out how she can somehow get her dress completely over her head for the picture without me pulling it back down.

That's funny because I have noticed too that we don't have any pictures with all of us so we attempted some on Sunday before going to church and before everyone looks as though they are falling apart. None turned out well so I just put one of the kids doing their own things on the blog. Family pictures are a blast! And, I think you should have let Lo show her Dora panties to the world. That would have been a family picture to remember forever.

totally funny! It's not pathetic that you don't have a pic of the 4 of you bcz you have lots of pics of everyone here and there! I don't have many pics of the 4 of us, and I can count on 1 hand the "Professional" pics we've done of the 4 of us (probably on 1 finger really!) Anyway, these are cute! You should update the pic at the top of your blog too! LOL!

Don't you love trying to take family pictures with kids. I think it is a miracle to get one with everyone looking at the camera, let alone smiling. You guys are a very cute family with very cute kids, but I think you are greatly underestimating you an Bryan. You definitely cute enough to photograph!

also.....maybe Mya can make the big picture at the top of your blog now. The one that says "The Kinyon Family" just a thought.....
