a FUN day with Ama

We had a great day with Ama! Here are a few pictures we took this morning before we left (courtesy of Brian, not too bad for a rookie)

First we went to the Old Log Theater to see Charlotte's Web, it was super cute and Briar really loved it. She didn't want to meet the characters after the show, and just wasn't too sure of them (a little afraid). If you all know her BOLD personality, you would never think that "characters" would scare her... but they do. She squeezed my hand, just politely said hello and them whispered to Ama that she just wanted to get lunch. So we headed to Bay Side and sat on the deck, she fed the ducks and fish we had a nice lunch. Then she somehow convinced Ama to get some ice cream too (can you say spoiled, I mean special little girl?) we went over to the trolly and had a cone, some of us had it all over our shirt, right mom?

I always say that I wish I had more pictures of me with the kids, I am so glad to have these with my little princess.

I can't get over how old she is getting and SO DARN SWEET!

the Copeland clan

We are always so lucky to have families that keep coming back! The Copelands are one of them, and this year they added little Spence to the family pictures. Although you have seen his infant and 3 month pictures on here in the months past, and I am taking his 6 month photos next week.
We were loosing Shaye at this point.. it had been long enough and they were hungry!
Isn't she a doll though?
Spence wasn't sure what to think of the grass.

Thanks again guys!

Fourth of JULY!

We had a very low key, relaxing day -- spent a few hours walking around Excelsior, playing at the park and had a little ice cream.

the Stoa family

I am so far behind on my photo editing (sorry to all my clients).
Summer vacation has thrown me off. Summer means no consistent schedule for the kids (or me) which is great and fun, but whew I am exhausted. 

We've been so busy with daytime activities -- swimming lessons, camps, the pool, the lake. And night activities -- baseball and soccer. The kids are having a great summer (since it finally decided to get here) and that is what counts and how memories are made! I have some great photos of them with their friends and in soccer and baseball that I will post in the next few days so keep checking back. 

on to the wonderful Stoa family! 
Really they were great and so much fun to be with. We did pictures at a park that I had never shot at before, a very familiar park to me right by where I grew up and visited a lot as a kid, but I had to do some looking around to find fun/good places, they all were so patient with me... especially those 2 CUTE little boys :)

Aren't they all just cute?

Mom and Dad and super sweet too, and so great with the boys. You can tell how much fun they have together. 

Andrew and Aaron did great, a little tootsie pop sucker bribe usually does the trick! Thanks for "playing" hope to see you all real soon!
