Dad's Family Portrait

A visit over at the Tammy family home

Dad is trying to get one good picture of the family enjoying the lake. He took his tripod out into the water hoping to be able to have a wide enough angle to get everyone in the picture. The first photo was bad, the twins Pete and Salty are hidden.

The second photo is better. Ted dragged the little boys' fort down to the edge of the water so they could slide and splash. Pepper is wanting to take the raft out. Tammy and Mel are canoodling out behind the big pine. Mom is ready with a beach towel. Grandpa and Grandma are enjoying the new beach chair. Grandma loves the color. Grandpa is griping about cup holders. Grandma tells him to hush.

Fortunately, the Turner family has extensive beach front property. Grandpa couldn't find his trunks and came out 'as is'. Mom is starting to worry about him. He just hasn't been himself all summer.

Mom told Dad that none of his pictures are straight.

He said, "The pics can be cropped at photoshop."

Mom said, "but will they look right for our Christmas Card?"

Dad said, "OH, LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Great imagination! Set up very realistic and life like. The story and the posing of the dolls went together very well. I definitely will return for the next episode.

Surely, Dad knows what he's doing... or does he now? hmmmm... wonder how the picture will come out. Mom seems to be the only one who really cares ~ good for Mom!

I love your stories, Elizabeth... great for kids of all ages, for sure!
