You endured cold and winds and rain and even hail.

Yet all that time I never heard a single complaint from either of you.

The prediction was for a 30% chance of rain. The sky was overcast, but it didn’t really look all that threatening. So we decided it would be fun to throw our love seat in the back of the truck and head out for some family pictures with Jayson and Megan and their children. We first stopped at the college and borrowed the grand piano to take some pictures of the children playing the piano and their violins. This was my favorite shot of that series.

When we left, we realized that the couch, sitting in the back of the pickup, had been drenched by the rain. It was still coming down, but fairly lightly, so we decided to set out for more pictures. We stopped at a field that we had found a few days before and asked permission to use. Everything was a bit wet and soggy, but they were all great sports.

You can’t really tell from the pictures, but everyone was slowly getting soaked. We decided it was now or never, so we pulled out the couch, wiped it down as well as we could, and grabbed a few more shots before calling it a day.

By this time the rain was starting to show on their clothes and hair, and everyone was starting to get a bit chilly, so we decided to head for home. Unfortunately, the car battery had died in all the fun, and we had to find someone nice enough to give us a jump start.
