St. George's day photo shoot

Every year it gets a little more fun and challenging to do our St George's day photo shoot!
Gone are the days when the babies will just sit and smile sweetly, with the English flag as a back drop. These days they would rather crawl under it, wrap themselves up in it, scrunch it up, fight under get the idea.

It makes for some pictures.

Just for comparison, here are a couple of photos from past years.



I should probably point out to my American friends that St. George's day is not really celebrated in England, and certainly not with photo shoots like this. I just do it because I want my kids to have a sense of both parts of their heritage, and it's convenient to remember to take pictures on a certain day. So, April 23rd it is!

A rainy day

My babies are so much fun. I love them enormously.
I think that a child's curiosity and exploration are some of the most inspiring things to behold.
