birthday party...

It's been a week since our family birthday party...but I still wanted to share some photos I took from the celebration. My birthday was last Sunday and my mom's birthday was Tuesday. We decided to celebrate our birthdays together at the pond Sunday evening.
(Ironically, when I uploaded my photos to create this collage, I realized I have NO photos of Mom or myself..and actually none of any adults...only the kids! Maybe somebody else got some more photos they'll share...)

Everyone was able to go up after church - this is the first time all year we've all gone up together. We cooked hotdogs and marshmallows over the campfire, rode on the paddle boats, fished, and the kids hit the money rock where they scored some change (thanks again, dad, for starting such a fun tradition for the kids). My siblings and parents were very generous with birthday gifts and now I'm excited to go out on a few dates with Brad and pamper myself with all of the fun gift cards I received. The best part of the day was watching all of the cousins play together - it's so fun now that they're getting bigger...and watching the older cousins play with the little cousins just melts my heart. It was a fabulous evening - the perfect way to celebrate getting older! :o)


  1. How fun! I do the same thing, capturing just the little ones! Although, I would like to get more of my grandmother and my mom! Heck, even one or 2 of me, without me having to take my own picture! lol

  2. i find that ammusing that you had no photos of the actual birthday girls from the party. because that is something i would totally do too. lol!

  3. Hey there.

    Love your work. So clean and crisp.

    I hope you're having a fabulous day.


  4. Happy belated birthday! Looks like you guys had fun and I am just the pictures of myself...just the kids! lol
