Rain, Rain...Go Away!! {Graham Family Photography}

What to do on a rainy day???  When I left my house for this session, I saw a promising view up in the sky.  There was a break in the clouds and sunbeams of light were cascading down (and there must have been angelic music playing somewhere)!!  However, by the time I arrived at the C Family's house, that mirage had disappeared and big drops of rain came in its stead.

We stayed under cover and then moved inside for some more under-the-covers!!  (Hoping the rain would stop, we went inside for a little fun!!)

Big helpful during the shoot, and oh so handsome!

When the rain didn't let up, we decided to head out into the tree house in the backyard.  Wouldn't that be fun?  At least it has a little roof and it could make for some playful family pictures!  However, these guys greeted us when we got there!  (Now, because it was so cold, they really weren't a threat, but it made me laugh...first rain, then bees!!)

Of course, family pictures take on a whole new meaning when there is a two year old who is working as the "creative director" of the session!!

The C Family were such troopers!!  Did the rain let up?  NO...but we sat for a picture outside and pretended like we had all the time in the world to sit there!!  But shhhh...don't tell anyone!!

Back inside for the next item on the agenda....tickling!!

Then kids just started playing!!  It was a bit like the story line from The Cat in the Hat..."

“I know it is wet
And the sun is not sunny.
But we can have
Lots of good fun
that is funny!”
  “Look at me!
  Look at me!
  Look at me NOW!
  It is fun to have fun
  But you have
  to know how.”

Thanks C Family!!  Your flexibility was amazing!!  I hope I didn't leave the house as crazy as the Cat in the Hat!!
