large cheese with extra cheese

Are you ready for some super-duper extra cheesiness? Alright, here's the back story.
So, when David and I moved to North Carolina after college, we fell in love with it. Around our 3rd anniversary, we were starting to talk seriously about having kids, and we happened to find this artist (Steve Hanks) and this print in one of our many adventures around the state. Which, by the way, is where Winston's name is from--Winston-Salem, NC. 

We bought a signed copy and had it professionally framed, and it's always been hanging in a prominent spot in every house we've lived in since. Sometimes we'd talk about how it would be cool if we one day had a girl first followed by a boy, so we could recreate it in a photo. 

Fast forward to our 10th anniversary, and our darling Birdie was born. Then two years later, we had a boy. 

Ding, ding, ding!

Are you rolling your eyes yet?

Now, all I had to do was wait patiently until my kiddos were old enough to take the picture. 

So, we went to Galveston last weekend, and here's what we came up with. After talking about it for a dozen years, it's pretty cool to finally have it. I'll post a pic when I have it up on the wall.
