Strollin’ Up The Stream

Here is a fact about me: I don’t get pop culture references very often, if at all. I’m a bit like Captain America in that scene of the Avengers where he pipes in, “I understood that reference!”… ok, no I’m not – but at least I knew that reference. My lack of pop culture knowledge amuses my husband to no end really.

So when the McMurrays pulled up to their photo session, rolled down the window and exclaimed, “Hi! We’re the Griswolds!!” I actually panicked a little. I thought, WAIT – I thought these were the McMurrays!!! Just smile and say Hello Beth.

It wasn’t until about 5 minutes later I got the joke.

Yep. I immediately liked this bunch.

 

As you can tell the McMurrays are an awesome family with a great sense of humor. Together we all hiked back into the woods a little ways to find this beautiful creek with a series of waterfalls and cascades… which made for some beautiful family portraits!
