So summer is quickly coming to an end, and I don't have many pictures to show for it! Maybe we haven't done much this summer, but I've enjoyed every minute of it! Just spending time with my boys has been great! They tend to get frustrated with me when I pull out my camera, so it's stayed on the shelf!

So...what have we been doing? Running here and there, playing Wii, and just enjoying being with one another! Baseball finished, the boys took tennis lessons, we saw the new Harry Potter movie, and will be headed to Cinci. in a few weeks for one last weekend before school starts!

Evan's not looking forward to school starting, but Easton sure is! He can't wait to stay at school ALL DAY this year! He's in his last year of preschool, but he loves it - I hope this continues for the next 13 years! He's already career planning...Saturday night was a gorgeous clear sky full of stars. Easton told me he wished the starts were closer to him so he could touch them. I told him he should be an astronaut so he can fly to the stars! Last night, he told me he wants to be an astronaut or a sea monster - quite the comparison, huh? And coming from the kid who has to spray scary monster spray each night before bed??!!! (not sure where to send him for that education...)

Next week is full of last minute things - water park, lake, hair cuts. Maybe I'll have some pictures to share then. But for now, I hope you are enjoying your summer as much as I am!

Engagement Pictures

Switchfoot Concert

Went to the Porter County Fair last night...saw The Starside, Fireflight, and Switchfoot. It was a great concert, and Kayla was so excited! Seeing them in concert was on her Bucket List - glad I was able to be a part of it! And, Kayla, you should use orange for me!

My nephew, Kevin, is going to be a senior this year - I can hardly believe it!  Here are some shots from his recent shoot:

Sew? Sew what?

Yes, you read that title  If you know me at all, you know that I have not used a sewing machine since high school FACS class, and even then, I don't know what I was doing in that class!

My cousin Tara had great faith in me that I could do this.  When it's done, it will be a wall hanging.  I plan to put it in my scrapbook room (if it ever gets finished).  If I can do it, anyone can!  It has been a lot of are some pictures when we started - I will share the finished product hopefully later this weekend!

Wedding Day

Friday was a beautiful day! I was honored to take the pictures at the wedding of Ryan and Bronwyn. The weather cooperated, but the wedding party was even better! They were such a great group, and the guys were open to do anything! (they even had some great ideas of their own!)
Ryan and Bronwyn, may God bless your new life together as husband and wife! Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day!!
