Barrel of Monkeys

I always wanted four kids. Even when I was four, I think I wanted four kids. I just always thought that was a perfect number. Even, so everyone always has a buddy, and yet enough to add fun and chaos to just about every event. I remember summer days spent in MN with my cousins (there were only 6 of us total), and how I used to love every second of having so many friends to play with. I never wanted to go home, and I always imagined that one day I would just have enough kids that no one would ever be lonely. And four seemed like enough. Now, before you all get excited, no. I am not pregnant with twins. My husband would be jumping off the skyway bridge right now if that were the case. But I did recently get to do a session with this fun family. They have four kids. Hence, my nostalgia, because I'm doubting that's something that is ACTUALLY going to come to fruition for me. But what fun I had playing with this little group. More fun...they will be welcoming monkey number 5 soon! Mama better bet I am coming over for a newborn session. Even if she doesn't ask. I know her friends and I will just have them assist me in a break in.
We captured some of the last light in Hyde park and had such a blast. And I gotta commend mom and dad. While 4 kids may sound daunting to a lot of people, these were the best behaved 4 kids I have ever seen. Ever. They are all smart as a whip too, and this little one had me in stitches. She's the same age as Finn, yet she's this sassy little fully potty trained, big ol' full sentance talking, gum chewing spitfire and I fell completely in love with her and her brother and sisters.

You captured our nieces and nephew so beautifully! What you said about them actually brought tears to my eyes, but probably because I live in the Czech Republic and haven't seen them in awhile!
