After having to reschedule a zillion times due to driving wind and snow, we were SO blessed with a gorgeous 22 degree day, complete with sunshine and blue skies. I was thrilled to photograph this family, who also got into the autumn spirit with their fall colored clothing.
Their girls are the same ages (roughly) as ours, so they had no problem playing together right off the bat. I was giddy about meeting their newest addition, baby 'R' who was a complete doll the entire time.
This is 'A' who is as mischevious as Bayboo is. They got a long swimmingly. I just loved getting to know her funny personality (she takes after her dad in a LOT of good ways).
And like I said, Baby 'R' was so sweet and content the entire time, even letting her mom and dad sleep at night! What a good girl. So nice meeting you, baby!
And of course, gorgeous miss 'M'. We go way back, us two. I remember how sweet she was when I was expecting B and she and TJ would have plenty of play dates. She and TJ had fun all weekend playing on their DSes and generally being girly together :)As for us grown ups, we visited until 2 am for the first 2 nights before crashing early the third night. We are all getting very old, you know :) I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard I cried - but Christie got me doing it! Remember, "Who's a grumpy candy corn?" LOL! Okay, you had to be there.
We spent our weekend visiting the indoor haymaze (since the weather was still crappy, touring the Legislative building, and taking them to the museum, which we all enjoyed (I do every time I go!). We watched movies, snacked, and talked about everything and nothing. Such a nice visit, and over way too soon.
And what would Autumn be without some dancing. What would LIFE be without it?
And some jumping in the sunset :)
And some daddy's getting serious with the rake! Even breaking off the handle!
Ooops, another tree climbing money! Seems to be a lot of those around this place. Hmmm.. this one looks a little sketchy.
And some beautiful girls just waiting demurely for their turn in the leaf pile.
A cutie patootie NOT waiting her turn to get into that leaf pile. Who can say no to that face?
Laying in the leaf pile, hoping that there is nothing slimy or squishy in there - getting into your hair, or shirt, or pants. (shudder)
Oh, who cares what's in the leaves? This is WAY too much fun!
