Family Photo Shoot

My friend Marge has two sons.  Marge’s two sons and their families would all be gathered together at her house on Friday, June 28.  Marge said it isn’t often that the entire family is together in one place.  Marge asked Bob and me to join her family for a picnic on that day.  She asked if we could come a little early so that I could take some pictures of her family before the picnic got underway.

My friend, Marge, and her husband

Marge and I used to work for the same catalog company.  I worked for the catalog company from September 2008 through May 2009.  Marge had been employed at the catalog company for many years; she retired in early 2011.  We have kept in touch with each other via Facebook.

Marge’s son, Michael, and his family

Michael and Andrea’s son is such a loving child.  After some time had passed, he ran up to me, out of the blue, and gave me a hug.  He gave me a hug goodbye too.  Perhaps the hugs were because I asked him to help me, while I was taking pictures of his aunt, uncle and cousins.  He stood next to me and made funny faces to make everyone smile.  Nah, I believe he hugs people whom he likes.

Marge’s son, John, and his family

This is a blended family — one child is hers, one child is his and two children are theirs.  John, Missy and their children interact well together and genuinely care about each other.  If I hadn’t been told that theirs was a blended family, I would not have known it was so.  John and Missy’s youngest daughter was not so much into having her picture taken.  It was a rare moment indeed when she smiled or even looked at the camera.

Bob and I had a great time with Marge, Neil and their children / grandchildren.  Thank you for inviting us, Marge!
