The last time we took a Cummard family photo was in Newport Beach in 2005, I still had braces and Jackson was not yet 2. Well I think I came close to tears that day, the whole time Jackson was fighting the camera. Completeley determined not to smile during the picture or even look at the camera. I thought why is my child so naughty. Cheryl kept reminding me "that it's age appropriate" which is her favorite saying when the cousins are acting up. In all the pictures Jackson is unhappy. He has gotten better over they years, though sometimes he still hates getting his picture taken. On Monday he was being a little heathen all day which I thought was a bad omen for the pictures later that night. Well turns out I was right. From the first picture he started screaming and running away, refused to sit down, look and the camera or smile at all. I have no idea why he continued to progress the evening, that is only because he no longer was standing by us but with his cousins that he adores. We decided not to take individual family pics, since at the end he was soaked and still on One. Hopefully the photographer got a few good shots. I hope it goes better next time.Luckily Hudson was being awesome, not a peep from him, except when Ellie tried to pick the scab off of his nose. Guess she thought it was a bug or something. Here is one snapshot I took where Jackson is actually smiling. Do I not have the cutest neices and nephews and kids ever!
