Wolfeboro, NH -- Mitt Romney's large family is at the center of his life, and his presidential campaign.
The Republican candidate calls them "a bevy of Romneys" -- that's five sons, five daughters-in-law and 18 grandchildren.
All were front and center this Fourth of July holiday at his summer home in Wolfeboro, N.H.
While a handful of family members sometimes accompany Romney on the campaign trail, the annual family vacation provided a rare opportunity for him to showcase all the members of the group he invokes so often.
They are an embodiment of the family values message that resonates with Republicans and Democrats alike.
The family also offers an opportunity for Romney to portray himself as caring and authentic, a counter to Democratic attempts to paint him as a heartless millionaire.
