Putting My New Gift To Good Use

What a fun filled weekend we had. We started off with taking some school pictures of Dustin & Shenira Saturday afternoon and of course we had Gabe with us and he sure isn't going to miss out on a photo opportunity! We went to two different parks on Saturday for our shoot and I had lots of fun trying out different things. Below are a few of the shots I took of the kids.

Gabe 6 years old 1st gradeShenira 13 years old 8th gradeDustin 16 years old 10th gradeAfter pictures and a little shopping it was time to head to church for our Faith Promise Carnival. What an awesome time we had. There were fun little games for the kids and cute skits put on by some of our "adults" in the church. I use that word loosely! As you can tell by my guys reaction this was lots of fun and probably the best part of the night! Sunday took us out to Indian Run Golf course to take picture of the Project Graduation Class of 2012 Golf Outing. I loved this picture, it was raining leaves and the sun so out so bright and the weather was perfect. What a glorious day.

After taking pictures at the golf outing we headed to Three Rivers to our niece Karis' birthday party. Again a wonderful day to have a party and be outside. Her birthday is being celebrated early this year as her family awaits the arrival of her new baby brother.

I wish this weather would stay like this for a long time but it looks like on rain and gloomy weather will be returning later this week. I am so NOT ready for winter.

A Very Exciting Gift

If you know me at all you know that I have a MAJOR love for taking pictures. My husband is very well aware of this love and so this past week when a friend called and said that she was going to be selling her old camera because she got a new one, I was more than excited. I was even more excited when my dear sweet hubby told me that we would purchase said camera as an early Christmas/Birthday present for me! I got the camera on Monday night and I promptly on Monday and Tuesday night headed out to the park with my little man who is always up for posing and being a little model for mommy.

I love this first picture because it is exactly how I feel about my new camera! This was another favorite from our time out. He has the best smile ever...even if he is a few teeth short!

Thank you John for pretending to understand my sickness of taking pictures and for the great gift so that I can keep on clicking! You are the best!
