And just like that, she turned six
She asked for a sandbox for her birthday so her Daddy built her a really cool one.
It now takes two hands to show how old she is.
She’s pretty happy about that
She doesn’t like for me to take her picture anymore, she’s over it.
So I kinda take what I can get
Our weather has been kinda gross too so we grabbed a non-raining moment and ran outside
It’s been windy and crazy, I miss the sunshine and warmth!
Time for some yoga moves
We broke some rules- neither one are supposed to be on the counter….
But sometimes that’s ok- like on your last day of being five.
I will be the first to tell you that I am not a maternity or newborn photographer. I like being with the kids- kids of all ages are my thing.
That said I am always willing to try something new
These are a throw back from the Savvy workshop. It’s crazy that I never posted any of these and they have sat on my computer forever
This spot, on the gulf…. there is just nothing like it.
I tell Andy over and over that I am a Carolina girl but this little spot is a slice of heaven for sure
I think I could probably be happy there as well
And Amanda makes pregnancy look so glamorous. And she gets to live there. I know, totally not fair.
We did some newborn shots as well
I didn’t expect to like it- but it was fun!
And on the beach the ocean was amazing white noise for them
We are headed back to 30A for cousin camp this year- can’t wait!!!
One of the things I love most about warmer weather is how we tend to slow down and enjoy all the little things that we ignore when it’s cold and we are in a hurry to get from here to there.
Like many people I know, I struggle with maintaining a positive attitude when the cold weather sticks around for months on end.
I am for sure a warm weather kind of girl. And when the weather finally does decide to stick around we spend our days in the slow lane.
Outside, sun on our faces, dirt on our hands.
Some of like to do yard work
And some of us just like to play
There is nothing better than an extra large stick according to Hud
Who needs a mulching machine when you have a Golden Retriever
I love this dog. He has been the best addition to our family
The boys get mad when I call him my favorite son
Blake made this speaker out of an old suitcase- it’s pretty cool and sounds awesome
He is leaving to head to Michigan for the weekend with the lacrosse team.
I will miss him.
But a certain girly has a birthday in a few days and I need to plan.
And Cole has got the crud and is home sick.
Eva says this is circus training
She looks like a bobble head here
When Eva showed these worms to Austin he said “Eva you are such a boy.”
The weather turned chilly again and we were back inside with a bunch of playdoh. Eva made a camp fire and roasted this “smore” until it was black. Then put fire coming out of it and gave it to Cole.
It’s Friday and the sky is sunny- off to enjoy it!
Finally uploaded the final pics from our trip
These are from an afternoon stop at Huntington Beach. We had lunch at a Mexican food place that overlooked the beach but the food was yucky.
We had fun anyway
That night we went to Santa Monica but only two out of four wanted to join us on the pier
It was so pretty
I broke my big zoom lens on Sunday. I am so bummed
