How To Get Your Kids to Sit Still for A Photo?

I hope you didn't come here today for advice on how to get your kids to sit still for a photo because I'm asking, not telling ;)  As you'll see from my photos below, my youngest foiled the plans (again!).

Spring break day 2.  
Tuesday we decided to stick around and get some things done around the house.  I took my girl on an afternoon ice cream date and for dinner we went to my favorite Mediterranean restaurant;  big treat for me because we rarely go out for dinner all together and not cooking in the middle of the week is a great break!

The afternoon was gorgeous so I decided to get the camera out and try to take some pics of the kids playing.
We hear Drew crying because he fell off of his scooter...

Look at that face!  He scraped his upper lip ;(  I consoled him before taking the pick lest you think I'm a completely horrid mom!
Oh my gosh.  I LOVE this picture and it breaks my heart at the same time.  Poor little.
5 seconds later...
The next set of pictures took me back on a trip to memory lane when I tried to get a cute Christmas picture of the three kids.  My youngest WOULDN'T have it.  Here are a few gems.



 My youngest is a charmer.  He's sweet, and good and tender.  But he is NOT, I repeat, NOT good at posing for the camera.  At least he isn't crying his head off anymore.





 This one turned out OK.
 And how cute are they that they kissed their sister's cheek on demand?  ;)

 Ah, kids!!!

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I'm going to have to keep a secret stash of m&m's for moments such as these...
