Family Picnic...

We went to a family picnic yesterday... It was at the big, old house that was converted from an actual barn. Crazy. I worry about how many rooms we'll have to repaint when we go to look at houses & these people renovated their house from a barn. And it's beautiful inside. Tall ceilings, wood beams, just gorgeous. They have horses, which the kids were fascinated by. They even brought one out to give rides. And it was great to get to see the family... my aunt, uncle, cousin & her baby came down from Wellsboro and stayed with us. We only get to see them once or twice a year. I know my Dad really cherishes the time he gets to spend with his brother and sisters.

I had a hard time with the lighting. There were lots of trees so most of the photos had spots of bright sunlight as well as dark shade. Any advice for how to handle this would be greatly appreciated.

My cousin's baby, Emily... Isn't she a doll?

Emily and her Grandpa... look at that smile! Wish I hadn't cut off her fingers but it was a quick snapshot
My handsome husband. Doesn't he look so pensive? He's probably really thinking, "When is she going to put that thing away already?!?"
My Uncle Jim and his grandson, Cole. Poor boy got bit by the dog... Luckily, it didn't seem to phase him too much. He was up and running around with the other little ones soon after
