Embracing Our Traditional Photo


Every time we go to the beach, we get a picture taken.  All of the siblings on a bench, the same order every time.  When we took the first one, there were only five of us.
Not sure exactly what year this was, maybe 2000?
2005
By the next picture there were nine...

2008
Then there were 11 (12 if you count baby Jack in my belly!)...
2009
We missed the next year, but this summer there were 12 (plus one missing 10 year old, and 1 baby Luke in my belly,so really the grand total is up to FOURTEEN!). Also...this is a much smaller bench, aside from me no one is any wider than usual!
2011
I wonder if we will have to start using two benches in a few years?!





I love this family!
