I love my family and extended family! So it was with great enthusiasm that I got to visit my Aunt and her family for a weekend to take family pictures in Oregon. Earlier I explained that my family has a homestead outside of Tillamook in Oregon that we get to visit. This summer, my aunt visited for over a month on an extended vacation with her family and grandkids. The majority all live in Arizona, and some quite far out into the desert. Coming from an Arizona summer, this is a great treat to be up in such a lush area! The two middle girls- Lindsay and Shea- have loved playing at the river and going out to Tillamook to go to the beach. I mean, how could you not? Two of the family members live in Puerto Rico and don’t get into the states all that often. This is the first time they have been able to see everyone in the same place at the same time!
This was definitely cause for family pictures to be taken! With so many people, it made for kind of a great, chaotic session. It was a lot of fun! The youngest, Jeffrey, was such a ham. It is always a challenge to take pictures with younger kids, but they all did excellent. Jeffrey was all smiles and that made everyone else be in a better mood as well.
