Family Easter Pictures

For various reasons I became obsessed with trying to coordinate our family for Easter this year and then when we did finally all match, I had to document the effort! Other than the pouring rain, it worked great to have friends take our pictures before church (to avoid the matted down "I just survived sacrament meeting" look that we had for the rest of the day). We were hoping for some spring time pictures, but with the rain and then the wind (which kept blowing my white skirt all the way up) we settled for the very spring-like brick building background. In addition, if you are wondering why I am a few shades darker than the rest of my family...details regarding my exotic solo vacation might have to wait till a later post...

You all match, you're all there, your all smiling and the no "visible" rain in the picture. I think that is a major sucess. MAJOR! Three cheers for you! I anxiously await a description of said events that led to such a wonderful tan...that is a great color on you!

Sorry, this is Tamara and I just realized that I was signed in under Dougs name, he would never comment about your hair as cute as it is.
