Friends from Ruidoso

For those of you who have more than one child, you know how difficult it can be to capture a good picture of all the children together in the same picture. Jeremy and I have some good friends that live in a beautiful place called, Ruidoso, New Mexico. Our friends, Connor and Kaylee Bryan, are just like us and decided to have kids back to back. Jeremy and I had 4 kids in 4 years. Connor and Kaylee had 3 kids in 3 years.

We tried to get a good picture of our 7 children, ages 5 and under, a few weeks ago when they came to visit, on their way driving through town. This is what were able to get. In the back row are Thatcher and Finn. In the front row are Tripp, who is holding his brother Truett, Seven, and Piper, who is holding Rilian.

We weren't able to capture one picture where all 7 of the children were looking at the camera. Oh well! We tried. They are good pictures, though. And adorable children!

About 3 years earlier, our same friends came to visit us. They only had one child at the time and we only had two. Other friends, Shane and Sara McWatters, also came to visit with their two children. This gave us the challenge of capturing a picture of 5 children, ages 2 and younger. Starting on the left, you have Tripp, who is being held by Piper, Keegan, who is being held by his sister Avari, and Finn. The challenge wasn't any easier a few years ago!Tripp probably weighed just as much as Piper and they both fell over! Piper thought it was funny, look at her smiling.

Finn noticed that Piper and Avari were holding babies and he wanted a baby to hold, but there weren't anymore babies for him to hold.So we let him "hold" Keegan, who was just about as big as Finn was, if not bigger. Finn was so happy!
