Here is one of my favorite photobombs ever… I was in the back yard trying to get a picture… It was fairly cold and sprinkling a bit…  My daughter was out with me all wrapped up in her favorite blanket and of course… Charlie made sure to be in the photo as usual!  When we saw this picture we laughed until we almost cried… Good times!
