Microblog Monday: Family Pictures

In my last post I shared that we had some family pictures taken earlier in the month and the drama around where we had them taken at. What I failed to mention was that Tony also had a gout flare up that day. Actually, he spent about 5 weeks with a really bad gout problem. He gets it in his foot, which makes it super painful to walk. This time around even required him taking a couple days off work and using crutches. It was literally hurting him so much that he couldn't walk for a few days, and it took several weeks before he could even wear a shoe because his foot was so swollen. Well, the day of our family pictures, he was able to squeeze his foot into a shoe. He was determined to not let his gout get in the way of our pictures. He barely made it through the pictures, due to having to walk so much around the tree farm. He did it, but it did make him bed ridden for several days afterward. We did end up with some amazing photos though!

This one was in my last post, but you get to see it again because it's my favorite!

One of our favorites.

I know I'm biased, but I think they are so cute!!!

He was trying to give her a kiss. She was being silly.

Twin love

The next two pictures are my absolute favorites of Rylee and Ayden individually! How in the world did I ever get so blessed to have such adorable children?

Look at those blue eyes!

He's so handsome!

And then these were the pictures (as well as our family pic at the top) that were taken at the second tree farm.

Not my favorite picture, but ehhh.
