i just have to comment again b/c i love this photo quilt. i can't decide which photo is my favorite. it's a toss up between second row, far right or the ones where jake is making a break for it.

This quilt doesn't even show half the photos we had to take in order to get one suitable photo... I think all in all, between Jonathan & I, we took about 40 or so photos.
