Mother's Day was sunshine-y and windy. A beautiful spring day. After meeting, we decided to take pictures. When Tyler was home in February, Dad had a picture of him and the three Vaughan boys, so since all the Vaughan girls were here, we decided to get a Mom and girl picture. And then, there were a lot of cute kids, so we took a lot of pictures.
The New York Cousins
Aunt Livie, Hoyt, and sweet Elliott. Love this picture!
Livie is moving to Fargo, ND next week (wah!) so she wanted a picture of her and the nieces and nephews that were around.

Three of my kids
Me and my kids
Ashley and her Hoyt-boy
Hoyt is just so cute.
Clover and those White kids. I have a couple pictures of her, and all of them have Elliott looking like this--apparently disgusted by something stage right.
Discussing picture details
None of us thought about the branches making weird shadows.
But that's okay!

Patting Daddy's cheek. Or pinching it.
Owen and Justin played catch with Gilbert
This catch has more to do with Owen making a basket, than Gilbert's catching skills, but he enjoyed it!

This weekend marked the 26 year mark of us moving to the farm, so it was a good time to hang up the sign Ashley painted. Now we need to get the post painted.
Isn't she clever? We used to have this same design of sign, with a Holstein instead of a Hereford, but times have changed and Holsteins are pretty scarce around these parts.
Dad grilled up a storm for Sunday lunch!

Quaking Aspen leaves
They had rested their hands on this stump with their flowers, so I asked them to stay like that for a minute. They then had to pose. "Let's look off in that direction."
