Facebook vs. Real Life

The first photo is my newest profile photo on facebook.  It was taken on Friday night at Rudy's BBQ.  For a few of you, our blog world and our facebook world have collided and we're friends in both cyber worlds.  If so, then you already knew this.

What you (and my facebook friends) don't know is that it took a lot of effort to get one photo of me and the boys.  Seriously, so much work for one silly photo!!!

Will has hated having his photo taken since he was very small.  As a result, Mark hates photos because it takes so much effort to get Will to cooperate, and it's very easy to lose patience.  To get the photo above we had to go through Will geting a very stern talking to about listening and following directions (the expression on my face is eveidence).  He wanted to look every other direction than at his dad who had my phone trying to take the photo.  In the meantime, Ben is arching his back and flailing his arms like a wild man.  This is definitely a "real life" moment.

Here's one more photo of my cute boys that didn't make the FB cut.

I have a feeling we're not the only ones who have a difficult time getting photos of our children.  When you get a good one though, it's all worth it!


  1. lol, my youngest hates pictures too therefore making my oldest impatient and upset whenever I say "lets take some pictures". What they don't understand is it just makes the whole process take longer! Too funny :)

  2. Cute pics, even the funny ones. You look like Ann Curry!

  3. Love the photos. You are so pretty and your boys are just adorable. I know what you mean, Boyd rarely looks at the camera anymore, and if he does, he gives me a goofy face. I remember the times he did the flailing arms too. sigh.

    Oh, and I LOVE Rudy's BBQ. :)


Comments make my day! I'm so happy to hear from you!
