Lub my Family!

So, on Friday I was able to meet with Melissa M., Melissa K., Masen, David, and Lisa for lunch at Tokyo Sushi. YUM! Thanks so much Masen for setting that up for us! It was so great to chat (and laugh quite a bit) with people who love photography as much as I do! I left feeling really excited and I have to admit...a little overwhelmed (we talked quite a lot about personalizing blogs...and code...blah blah blah---went straight over my head!)
Needless-to-say, I couldn't let the sun go down without taking out my camera!

So, when I got home, I packed up the other thing that I love (even more than photography...), yup...my family, and headed out for a new adventure. I had told Aaron that I wanted to look for new and different places to shoot. We ended up at a cute little park in Santee called Mast Park. The lighting was awesome...so we took a few shots of our 11 month old.




As soon as I fired off a few shots, Aaron told me to get in the pictures! Isn't that sweet?
So, he took over and allowed me to get a few fun shots in with Abbey.


So, here I am...on my own blog. He really got some good ones of us. =)

I took over for a couple more...
Abbey didn't like crawling in the mush that much! Ha ha, you should have seen her face when we put her down in it. =)

AND....good thing I had my camera! We actually snagged this shot of her very FIRST KISS!!!
Is that the most awesome thing ever!?!?!?

Before we left, we trusted a nearby stump to take a picture of the three of us.
It captured this gem....

Yeah, I know. Pretty good for a stump. I hired it for my next wedding. =)
