Why is it when we take the moon's photos it seems like it is always gives us that face... I would have thought all the spinning would give us different facets...? Otherwise, nice!

Nice. I could show you a moon photo, but I don't think anyone would like it much.
I don't think it would beat someone in the blue robe

Mild panic is setting in.... My camera gear has mostly been in my bag for the past few months. . . Any suggestions?!?
All of the above suggestions. Do watch your aperture settings though... you wouldn't want the ones at the back to have some blurry faces. I remember reading somewhere... 1 - 2 deep - min. f5.6; 3 - 4 deep f8-f16... but also depending on your distance from subjects... Remember, when in doubt, chimp Also try to bring a stool or something to get the focal plane in line...
Remember that 12PM will cast some very strong shadows too... As Peter says, try to find a shaded spot if you can. Otherwise, fill-in flash will be good.
Also, remind everyone to either wipe the oil and sweat of their foreheads to minimise shine. the women are best to put on some face powder, again to minimise shine/blow-outs.
Lastly, remember that photography is like riding a bike - you never forget... you wobble for the first couple of seconds then you get into the hang of it pretty quickly. Enjoy!

State "favorite things" insurance ftw! lol
Monday/Valentines day = take wife for walk on beach and take photos, fall off rocks and drown camera, ring State when we get home.
Tuesday = drop camera off to get a damage report done, tech is off work for the day.
Wednesday = pick camera/report up at 10 am, email copy to state, pick up new camera/lenses etc at lunch time!
