My kids were asked to be models for a photo workshop that a well known and pretty impressive Utah photographer (Nichole Van) put on out here in Richmond. They were looking for older models (Cole's age and up) but were happy to have any at all when I showed up with my brood.
It was a lot of fun to watch and the setting was of course beautiful. Maymont Park..I've mentioned it a few times. ;)
There was about 8 photographers and Nichole told me that I should be getting all the pics from the shoot. I'm still waiting..
June in a sunny spot eating Pirate's Booty. Happiest girl ever (notice the tissue shoved in her shirt? Her allergies were bad that day and I was sick of wiping snot when she sneezed..).
A little ombre look for ya..
June singing "Castle on a Cloud" for the 50th time. She's all ready for next year's talent show, have ya heard? ;)
We couldn't be happier with this dogwood tree in our front yard. It scoots right up to our front porch, giving us a little more privacy, and the kids have a ball climbing it and hanging from its branches.
We had kittens. 5 of them. I walked in my closet last week to put clothes away and Lizzie had JUST given birth. What a surprise (knew she was pregnant..but didn't know she was ready!). Tried to keep it a secret from the girls until they were a little older..no chance. Dayne found them on day 2 and came running out of my room with a little one in her hands screaming, "We had kittens! We had kittens!". So far, she and June have done better than I'd imagined (I imagined the worse).
Dayne dropped June's necklace into a garbage can at Cole's soccer game. She tried going in after it by jumping off the top of the bleachers IN TO the can..hitting her mouth on the bleacher on the way down. Lots of high-volumed wailing from this girl. Not happy.

- Went to VA Beach camping this past weekend. A birthday tradition for Dayne (did I mention she's SEVEN?!).Cold and rainy but still glad to be out. Met up with two families from our ward and some good friends who now live in VA Beach. Love my friend, Eliza and her sweet family of boys. She and her husband Freddy spoiled us rotten on Sunday and fed us yummy food while we all sat around lazily watching AFV. It was awesome.
We tried boiling eggs but it took too long so we set them directly over the fire. It worked. Kind of.
