thank you self timer

I took this great shot, yup, me and my trusty self timer.
People laughed, people stared, people wondered if I was crazy running back and forth to my towel laying on my tummy army style before leaping up and dashing to ( but not into!) the lake to make it into the shot crouching down with a large smile while trying not to look out of completely breath.
I did it 3 times and BINGO, a great family shot that captured the way we spent the day........together.
Here are the other 2 shots. The kiss WAS NOT pre-planned. That's my McDreamy for you, yeah, he's sweet like that, sorry. I like how the king of the castle is ignoring us. He quite often chimes in "Play that game, play that game too!" if he ever feels we are getting too romantic with out him. I think its sweet.

Well, the crazy girl in the purple dress at the beach today may still be crazy
but she has a few family shots that melt her heart and captured he love for her boys.
Any other good self timer stories out there?

Awesome shots! Photographers always have shots of everyone else, but its always hard to get shots of *you* with your family. But I must say you have rocked those self-timer skillz!
