October 2016

 Breccan's birthday is in October! We sure do love that boy!

 I also took Bay's soccer team photos. I think they turned out kinda cool!

 Discussing the ballet this year...what a train wreck this election was. It was hard to make a decision of who to vote for.
 Breccan's 11 year old pictures. I love to shoot with a graffiti background!

 There's a smile from the boy. He doesn't like to smile for me, which drives me crazy, because his real, joy-filled smile is awesome.

 His birthday party was at Get Air again, and surprisingly, they let Pa bring in his cotton candy machine and make cotton candy after the party! :)

Mimi shares the same birthday, and we don't always celebrate her as we should, so this year, before she headed off to Mexico, I brought some yummy cupcakes from a cupcake specialty shop and we had a mini-birthday bash. Those cupcakes were GOOD!

August 2016

 And it's time to start thinking about school again. BayLea and Amelia made some Emoji magnets for their lockers. They turned out super cute.

And here we are...early morning on the first day of school. We decided to meet up at the donut shop again with Amelia and Haley and that way they could head into school together. But first we had to do first day photos. Man, you both look so cute!

At Breccan's end of the first day, they had to take down the flag...the duties of the 5th grade students. Luckily I got there in time to take a photo.

 I had my backdrop set up at school to take teacher pictures, and so I decided to try some fun lighting on Breccan in his uniform. I wish I'd gotten some of BayLea too.

 BayLea's first volleyball game of the season for OMMS. She chose my jersey number from high school basketball.

Saturday, August 6, 2016 the Cabin, Father's day and in Mexico

 We had a weekend at the cabin with Uncle Josh, Uncle Jason, and Ethan. Of course, Mimi and Pa were there too.

 Breccan did some fishing.
 BayLea did some driving.

 After an afternoon of swimming, BayLea let her hair naturally dry without combing it. She had also put on these shorts and shirt. I looked at her and thought, "Man, she looks beautiful!" So I begged her to let me take pictures. She finally relented and we had a great time, taking beautiful photos of my girl.

 Father's Day...Daddy wanted to golf, so we did that in the early afternoon.

 Then we went to the pool to cool off.

 And then he put together the Treager we bought for him. :)

 On Memorial Day, I took the kids to the Veteran's Graveyard to place flags on random grave stones. Breccan got a little emotional about it...finding it to be pretty sad.

 The kids and I went to the cabin just for a night...Daddy had to work the next day. We had a nice, relaxing time. BayLea and I watched a movie, while Breccan read for three hours.

 The baseball end of season party was up at our pool. Had a great time...
 We always stop in Phoenix for a few days on our way to Mexico. Tried to get Auntie Jill, Lacey and Uncle Scott to come to Mexico with us, but Jill let her passport expire! :/

 Reading in Mexico...this boy of mine.

 Virgin pina coladas.

 The ocean was a little rough the first part of our week there.

 Flying a kite.

 These two... <3 p="">

 A little soccer playing on the beach at low tide.

Goodbye Mexico. See you next year!
