Family Pictures and More

So today was Family Picture day. Here's a picture Dean took on the way there...
It's hard for me to take pictures of all of us... especially to get Zane.  So today we headed to Portrait Innovations to get some family pictures made.  When we got there they were running about 30 -45 minutes behind.  No biggie we went to the Hallmark store and looked around and then headed back to see if they were ready.  We still ended up waiting for a little while... still no big deal.  I know how you have to take your time with kids... some do great others you have to spend a little more time with... so it's easy to get behind. Most of the people who came in behind us were so rude about the fact that the studio was running behind.  I couldn't believe it!  Zane sat quietly and waited with us.  When it was our turn however he decided that it was then time for him to eat... so we had a hard time with the pictures.  The lady taking our pictures was very patient and understanding.  We played the give him the pacifier, get him settled and then yank and smile game. lol!  We ended up with some great pictures but we only came home with 2 of our favorite poses.  We would have ended up spending $200 if we had the money!  The pictures turned out great... I must say I usually don't care for studio pics but I loved these!  When we went to pay for our pictures the lady said... "well I'm just going to give you your pictures for nothing"  I couldn't believe it!! Apparently being quiet and patient really paid off today.  So here is our first official family picture (and Zane is SMILING!!!) and one of Zane by himself.




Then on the way home we decided to stop by Grandma's so that Zane could visit.  Aunt Kim stopped by too, but we didn't get a picture.
Also along the way home we decided to go to Spring Lake Estates and look at Christmas lights.... they're surely not the best pictures... but you get the idea...
