My wife and I have three kids, so needless to say, our house can often be crazy. But with one girl and two boys, we also have some semblance of balance within our craziness. My daughter can confide in my wife for the types of pre-teen questions that dads are ill-equipped to handle (that list grows by the day), and my boys can turn to me for all the gross, dirty, nasty boy things that moms would rather not have to even think about. Even better, no gender ever really reigns supreme in our house: sometimes, Legos rule the day, and others, the boys have to sit through a “Good Luck, Charlie” marathon on Disney Channel. Ah, balance.
I had the privilege of taking some Olmsted Falls family pictures of this awesome family. They obviously skew toward one gender, but by the look on his face, Dad couldn’t be any happier about it. Balance goes out the window when you’re outnumbered 5-to-1, and they definitely make it work. During our time at Fortier Park, these girls were the life of the party, particularly the youngest, a little firecracker who couldn’t wait for me to turn the camera her way!
Here are some of my favorite shots from the day, including a couple that prove boys and girls agree on one thing: Mom and Dad kissing is just gross! Good luck, Dad!
