San Antonio

I'm not even sure if anyone is checking this blog anymore! It's been greatly neglected. As the New Year approaches, I hope to get it revived again - or merge it with my photography blog. But I do have some pictures from this past weekend. My family travelled to San Antonio for the wedding of my cousin, Shannon. It was a wonderful weekend and a great time spent with family. We haven't seen my aunt/uncle/cousins for many years and it was a joy to catch-up. My kids had a blast! Here are a few of the girls - more from the wedding soon!

Halloween 2008

The girls had a terrific Halloween. It was a beautiful night. Abby went to gymnastics and then ended up at the Sioux hockey game with a friend and Aunt Kristi (which is why she isn't in any pictures). My Mom made some Halloween treats that we all enjoyed after the game.

Kate's Birthday

Kate is 7!! She had a terrific birthday with treats at school and gymnastics and then cake and presents with family. The next day a couple friends came over to play and then their families joined us for dinner. She LOVES her new pink guitar (and I, of course, am going to love it for pictures). Happy Birthday Kate!! We love you so much!

Labor Day

I hope to get back on track with this daily blog now that school is in session and we have a little more of a routine in our lives! We spent Labor Day weekend at the lake and had a TERRIFIC time. The weather was beautiful! It was amazing, however, how in the course of 3 days you could start to see the trees changing and fall approaching. I was very sad leaving on Monday. I love sitting at the lake, reading and soaking up the sun! Oh how I miss the warmth of the sun during our long winters! Here are a few pictures of some of my favorite memories from the weekend.

First Day of School

I can't believe that we are already back to school! The girls seem really happy with their classes and teachers. We're getting back into our before and after school schedules. And summer is already seeming like a distant memory! Looking forward to one last long weekend at the lake for Labor Day!

A New Look

Abby starts 8th grade next week - and will go back to school with a whole new look. New haircut and new braces. Doesn't she look like a teenager now?

This Face....

makes me smile. I can't believe she will be starting the 1st grade in a couple of weeks. Where did my baby go?

These Two.......

These two, Kate and Kaitlyn, are quite the duo. It is fun to see what great friends they are and exciting to see how that friendship grows over the years. They practically live together between school and gymnastics. It seems that they have "grown up" a lot this summer - individually and as friends. It was fun to take them out the other night to get these shots.

The Last Ones

I promise....no more shots from this field. But I just finished editing and wanted to share these. I have so many other ideas now for next year (I'm sure the flowers are gone already for this year). But, I'll definitely remember to bring bug spray next time!

I think I might even be on theme with this one! I love me some sunflare!

Monday, July 28, 2008


I have been keeping an eye on various fields around my parents' lake home and thinking about how beautiful they would be for pictures. This past weekend I finally got around to getting the girls ready and venturing out into the flowers. Unfortunately, the bugs were a little hard to take. I have lots of editing to do, but wanted to share this for now!

We're all just trying to relax and enjoy the last couple weeks of our summer vacation - man the time sure does go by quickly!

Lexi and Meg

A few more from my fun time with Lexi and Meg the other night. Aren't they both adorable?
