Despite the rainy forecast, the Merrill's and I decided to go for it and take family pictures. We got about 30 minutes with no rain and then it poured. And there was no letdown. I got a lot of photos in the beginning, but we wanted a few more family shots. So I told them how to pose and then we hurried and went in the rain for 3 seconds to take a shot. It was quite the experience and everyone was troopers! The Merrill's are an awesome family and it was fun to be with them again!
