So, that gal at that meeting who wanted my business card? She not only has fun in-laws, but she has a wonderful family of her own. Back-to-back weekends and her kids were troopers. We stretched them to their max and I'm so pleased with the results, with just one regret. (I'll get to that eventually.)

The kiddos were so excited to return to this park, so we let them play a little bit before getting into the large group shots first.

While we let the kids play, I took the couples aside one at a time to highlight those that I hadn't photographed yet. Maribeth and Paul are at the top of this family tree and were very open in expressing love for each other. So cute!
Apparently, the expressive love is genetic because Steve and his wife, Valerie made me feel like I was on an engagement shoot. Maybe he was just delirious from juding a marching band competition all day...I'll chalk it up, though, to his gorgeous wife.

Some more play time as a reward for all their patience...
Gradually, they all joined Isaac in the sand and piled on Grandpa.
Sara, thank you so much for bringing not just one side of your family to me, but BOTH! I had a great time with both of them and I look forward to getting to know you and your family even better throughout the year!
