This family is clearly too busy having a blast to worry about the epic laundry situation they just created.
Rachel Andrews and her husband, Alex Howard, from Bellingham, Washington set out to take a nice family photo and commemorate their five-year anniversary. "We never got good wedding photos or family photos so this was our way to make up for it in one shoot," Andrews told ABC News.
Though the photo shoot -- like most family activities -- didn't go according to plan, the result was exactly what the family hoped for.
The photographer, Aaron Nelson, of Evantide Photography, told The Huffington Post in an email: "This was a 5 year anniversary/vow renewal shoot that Rachel Andrews wanted, ending on the mud flats for some messy fun family photos."
The photos show the family poised and put-together, then suddenly slinging some serious mud. Even Andrews' delicate wedding dress was not spared from the sludge.
Who needs good clean fun when you've got a family like this?
