2013 Summer Portrait

Each summer, we grab a willing passerby or favorite cousin to take a family shot at our annual trip to Camp of the Woods in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.  We only do one family portrait {and I use that term very loosely} each year, and though the results vary, we are who we are!  Bribery {usually in the form of candy or cinnamon buns} and/or gentle threats are offered by various adults at different times, cajoling all family members into being enthusiastic participants.  Again, with twelve restless souls, results vary from shot to shot. 
 
You gotta do what you gotta do.
 
Cherished, these yearly pictures are ...
 
Farewell, summer.  It surely was a crazy one!

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
