Fourth of July, a little late…

July 30, 2009

We went to my Mom’s house for the 4th of July this year. We had a wonderfully relaxing time just enjoying the beautiful day and good company. I took some pictures while I was there, surprise, surprise! I had forgotten about them, until I was going through some albums today. Here are the best… They are best viewed by clicking on them to make them bigger.

The Many Faces of Erin

July 29, 2009

Erin’s birthday was yesterday, but we celebrated it, for the most part, last weekend. On Saturday we went to my in-laws house, and then on Sunday to my Mom’s house. In an effort to make things less stressful for everyone, I made two cakes and we split Erin’s presents from us between the two days and her actual birthday. It made for a long period of celebrating, but she is still little enough that her birthday is a big deal! Here are my photo offerings from the weeknd’s celebrations.

I will only add that Erin is the most expressive of my 3 kids and I think these pictures show that!

My Favorite Candids

July 17, 2009

I took these pictures while we were in Florida last month. They are of my cousin’s daughter and my little sister. We were doing family photos which, with about 20 people is a feat in itself. Then we do family groups, grandkids w/ grandparents, great grands, etc. It is a long and crazy endeavor, so the little kids get restless and bored. I happened to catch the interactions between these two and was very pleased with the results…

We went to the lake to watch the sunset this evening. I’ll let the pictures speak!

I took a ton of pictures, but these are most representative of what I was after.
