it's pretty well known in my family that we take horrible pictures. any attempt at a group photo is never very successful. poor charlie is always the one being asked to take the pictures and he always gets frustrated because we're never looking at the camera at the same time. these pictures were the best of the worst. but i still appreciate having them. it was my dad's first time meeting ellie and that had to be documented no matter how awful the pictures. thanks for the attempt charlie.
