And yes, the jacket makes me look like a linebacker, so I probably won't wear it again, at least not in public! Doesn't help that I had to be straight on to the camera as well, since I was trying to keep Adam in line.

We'll more than likely go back out to this park and reshoot these, only with the kids dressed a little nicer, for our Christmas card. Too bad we weren't ready for it today. The light was perfect.

I definitely need to do something about that.
