Easter Photo Shoot

Michelle and Andrew invited us over for Easter dinner. Nettie and I mostly missed dinner since we have late church but arrived in time for leftovers. After the meal we decided to take a walk outside since the weather was so nice. Our walk kind of turned into an impromptu photo shoot. Nettie tried taking walking/action pictures, but that just resulted in lots of laughing. We got back to the house to try to take some posed pictures. Andrew could not stop laughing. We might not have gotten the best pictures, but it was entertaining to say the least.

being silly. trying to take 10 pounds off with our poses(you can see it didn't work). nettie trying to get a walking shot(also didn't work so well)

now for real. andrew and michelle.

Blog Worthy

I always kind of laugh when people take pictures just so they can post them on their blogs. I'm not saying I haven't done it (see recent uh-oh post). It just makes me laugh a little. I was already laughing a little when I took these pictures, but I had to do it. This was definitely blog worthy. We live in an old house which naturally equals problems/repairs. We have had some problems with a water leak in the furnace room. The owners are great and have had the repairman here several times to fix the problem. We also discovered we were using 5x as much water as the house was last year due to a huge leak. No wonder our water bill has been $100. We thought everything was figured and taken care of. For some reason I went into the furnace room to check the leak. There wasn't just a a little leak. There was a flood. There was so much water we had to sweep it out. It was pretty gross dirty water. We used almost every towel we have in the house which is a lot of towels with 6 girls, and there was still so much water. The owners came over to check things out and got things taken care of the next day. We were just lucky nothing got ruined and the flood didn't spread into any other rooms.
