It was one of the easiest family reunions we've ever planned. The California Fullers (that's us!) made the plan to visit the 'rents (my in-laws) for a week this summer on the east coast. After scouring the web for the least painful airfares for a family of four to South Carolina, we booked our flights and announced to the family we were going. Within a few days, we excitedly found out that all of my husband's siblings - and their families - would plan to go around the same time and our trips would overlap for a few days. It was great how well it all came together, since it's not easy to get us all in the same place at the same time. You know what else isn't easy? Trying to take a group shot - and be IN the shot - when you don't have a remote trigger...and you need to run from the camera into position...and it's like, 90 degrees...and it's like, ridiculously humid...and you're wearing heels...and you feel like you might pass out but you must Get. The. Shot.
Yeah, that wasn't easy...but I guess you could say it all came together.
