silly family pictures

A few weeks ago we had our family pictures taken at the Benson Grist Mill.  It was a sunny yet chilly day.  Along with the individual, sibling, and family pictures we took some time to do a few fun ones as well.  Seriously,  I thought the slide would break with all of our weight.  As each person got on I thought,  "this is it we are going down" but it held...... thank goodness. 
We had a good time together.
Afterwards we all went to eat at Tsunami. 
I am the only one in the family who doesn't eat sushi but I enjoyed the potstickers!

Isn't he the cutest??  Our little Rafe grandbaby is too sweet.  He is more awake and alert these days and that is really fun!!  It's funny how babies look different when they are awake than when they are sleeping.  We took our family pictures a few weeks ago and our photographer (Courtney Ryan, who has taken our family pictures for the last 10 years) got this darling picture of Rafe blowing bubbles. 
Man, I love that boy!!!
