a tale of 2 photos

This summer while we were in Colorado we had family photos taken with Jay's family, and then our family alone. It was a little tough-I had high hopes of using it for our Christmas card this year. Everyone had on clean clothes and some were new. We got the picture and I have it framed. I like it. It sure sums up our family at that moment, that day.

Then we had the easiest photo ever taken with all 6 of us happy and in the photo at the same time. Taken by the lifeguard at the pool.I was really excited to have the "real" family picture done. I wanted to send out a "nice" family photo. But we were not really happy there. In the pool we were happy.

Which one would you have chosen for your family photo?

Definitely pool-side. The first one is great. The second one you all just seem so you...

I would have chosen the second one too. That looks more like the Spears family I know.
