I really wanted a cute family photo of us together on the 4th, kind of like last year. I thought it would be a good tradition to start. But then I was very aggressively kicked in the face with the reality that we have 2 year old twins. 2 year old twins that determine when they want to look cute and when they want to be left the hell alone.
This is what a good family portrait looks like with 2 year old twins on the 4th of July, after you've fed them cookies and let them run wild because hey, it's a holiday!
Here's to keepin' it real, folks. And to embracing life the way it is, no matter how hard you try to plan it differently.
