Yesterday afternoon, my daughter, Kori and her hubby, Rick and all of his family asked if I would come and snap a few family photos. I am definitely not a photographer, but I was game (although I did end up wondering what the heck I was thinking after an hour in 13 degree weather taking them!). So, off I went to the Roberts' home. They have a gorgeous backyard area with scrub oak and it was full of snow. Perfect! Below you'll see a few of the photos I took.
I have to preface the photos with the fact that it is NOT easy to get 2 babies to look your way, and smile at the same time. Rick's dad, Fred, is 6'10" (those of you as old as I am may remember Fred from his NBA days: he played for the Celtics, Lakers, Jazz, Timberwolves and Spurs. You also might remember his famous on-court skirmish with Dennis Rodman...classic!). We had to kind of build around him. He even makes our 6'5" Rick look small!
