Always be careful what you ask your friends to do. Last week Kathy asked me and Wendi (a fellow camera crazy friend!) to take her kids to the park for some pictures. We had a great time and went a little overboard with no parental supervision along! :) If you're wanting photos but would rather not have the stress of coming along, I'm sure I could talk Wendi into doing it again, right Wendi?!? :) All we ask in return is watching our kids while we take yours.
Alex, I'm with ya buddy! That's how I would have felt too if my Mom's friends tortured me for an hour and a half. :)
