The not-so-perfect perfect picture

You may remember this picture from last year:

 

 

Complete chaos. Although very representative of their personalities. Tucker screaming because that's what Tucker does. Cade with his head in his hands because he can't believe this is his family. Clay with his "WTF? Can I go back to Charlotte now?" look. And Brayden, as the oldest, knows he just needs to keep smiling know matter what.

 

A few weeks ago my Mammaw requested a picture of the four great grandsons together. I thought, "easy peasy. Clay is always down for smiling and Tucker has calmed down quite a bit."

 

Bahahahahahaha. I am so funny.

 

This was the first try:

 

 

Second try:

 

 

Finally I told the older boys to just follow Clay around and surely I would get a good candid of the four of them. I got some of this:

 

 

 

Finally Clay went up to the boys and started saying "boom boom boom." What in the world, Clay? Then I realized he was trying to get them to fist bump with him then blow it up.

 

And then I got the not-so-perfect perfect picture.

 

 

It probably wasn't the picture my mammaw was looking for, but it's definitely my new favorite of my boys together.

 

(Apparently we only have blonde haired, blue eyed boys in our family.)

 

This moment was by far my favorite little moment of the past week! What was yours?

OMG that first picture! That is one of the greatest pictures I have ever seen! And your boys are so handsome. I have a hard enough time trying to take a picture with just one kid so I can only imagine! I think you got some good ones though!

Haha! It is so difficult to get them all to stay still, look at the camera, and smile at the same time!!!

You brave, patient woman. It's hard enough just getting a good picture of ONE kid. It's too bad we're not allowed to drug them.
