Family photos...MY family!!

We spent this past weekend in Illinois to celebrate my in-laws retirement.  It was like a big slumber party with my whole gang, my sister-in-law, niece and nephew and grandma and grandpa all crashing under the same roof.  So much fun.  It is fairly rare for this whole group to be together at the same time so we made it a point to get some family photos.  Big thanks go out to Suzanne for helping out so I could actually be in a few photos (which rarely happens).  Minus the tick that I discovered the next day (the price of rustic country scenery I guess), it was a fun, time.

Oh, and this first photo is even more impressive when you take into consideration that it started out as just myself, Chad and our two kids trying to get a few family shots before we added the whole gang when suddenly my little Chase decided he was done with photos and signs of a tantrum started appearing.  Since we hadn't gotten a group photo yet I quickly shouted "EVERYONE RUN IN NOW!!! " and miraculously this is how everyone just kind of landed.  I don't think I could have planned the placement any better and everyone running towards us and jumping into the shot must have been amusing enough to even put a smile back on Chase's face.  :)
