Tired of beach pics yet? Well let me humor you! I thought it'd be such a great idea to try and get a few pictures in before our last night out with the crew.
Everyone was in their matching attire, and we headed to the beach.
The wind was gale force! Seriously, we were having to pose all kinds of directions because of our hair situation. And here we are... Gabbi, Me, Todd, Ellie and MY ARM!!
Ummm...NOPE! That is NOT going on my wall!! I'd have to decorate my arm with glitter or something. Maybe pretend tattoos for a "sleeve".
Hey, let's try this arm! Nope. NO better.
Have you noticed there's hardly been a picture where we are all actually looking at the camera?!
And Gabbi had not had a nap and was NOT a happy camper. Dang babysitters. Can't they get anything right?!
Jusssst kidding. I'm afraid after that last post, there'd be mutiny on the Bounty if I dissed the sitters!! I couldn't have made it without them.
So we decided to have a few little impromptu photos of the girls alone.
This one might be cute with a little Photoshop action!
This was originally in her hair, but she decided she needed to carry this barrette, and so I obliged. ANything to get her to cooperate for photos.
And things went from bad to worse when it was time to take them back to the boardwalk to see if we could avoid the winds up there. By then, Gabs had gotten herself a little taste of the sand and wanted to stay! She is not easily motivated to change when she finds something she likes!
DAD to the rescue!
Actually, we had to carry her the whole way up. She was not going peacefully!
We tried a few with the cellphone, and if you follow me on Instagram (melaniemomom), you probably saw a few of the outtakes, which, I think, turned out better than any of these with the better camera!
Hang tight. I separated our attempted family photo shoot into three different posts. I bet you can hardly wait to see our next attempt!
Hey. SEnd me a comment. Let me see... I'll ask a question from my Daily Q & A book...you answer:
If this day was an animal, what animal would it be?!
I'll share my answer tomorrow!
