family photos (the emily + ben family)

the book idea for this one was inspired by kelly. thanks, pretty lady!!
on saturday, ben and i went to the arboretum to take some family photos. we used our trusty little joby tripod and self timer. i'm happy the photos worked out well.
i'm happy the arboretum is pretty all year round.

i'm happy ben and i are a family.

i feel very thankful for ben. for family.

and not just because
it's thanksgiving week.

p.s. our two very favorite family photos i'll post later. they are going to be used for the christmas card :)

I would add more books so you're at least 7 books taller than Ben. Who's the tall one now?

aww you guys are so cute! although i must say, if you were actually as tall as you are in the book picture, you would look pretty freaky hahaha.
