Family Photos



This past weekend we were in Castalia, Iowa to celebrate Tractor Day with our grandparents. Having the whole family together is too sweet an opportunity to pass up a quick photo-op. After taking the pictures, we noticed that the farm just beyond these trees is where our grandparents lived after they were married 60 years ago. What a perfect place for family a photo shoot! 


Sharing at the Sunday morning service.


The whole clan


And most of our pictures turn into a goofy picture at some point, as this photo attests! 


In addition to our dear grandparents (center), we were thrilled to have Mom's sister and brother here, as well as four of her cousins!


Did I mention we typically end up with a host of goofy pictures?!


Alan & Rachel

[Joanna and Asher were very enamored with the park's swing-set, so unfortunately, we didn't get a picture of Josiah's family to share. Maybe next time?!!]


Dan & Bethany's family


Andrew & Kori


Photo-bomb?!!



Dad, Mom, and the grandchildren:
Joanna, Asher, Arianna, and Caden


"That the generation to come might know them,

The children who would be born,
That they may arise and declare them to their children,
That they may set their hope in God,

And not forget the works of God,
But keep His commandments;"
Psalm 78:6-7

Ohhh, such sweetness! :)

I so enjoyed the variety of pictures. Y'all are too fun! Also, how did I know that Matthias would make the craziest faces out of all?! Ha! What a gift for you to all be together. :)

We have got to get together again sometime!

Great photos! How did you manage to get everyone to cooperate? :) I know that for our family it can get pretty difficult...don't even mention family reunion pictures! :)

Dear Wissmanns,

I just saw today on the news that there have been two massive tornadoes in Nebraska...not sure if it was near you or not. Hope you all, your neighbors and church family are safe!
