Since it is officially Summer, I thought I'd kick it off with a very summery post! I think the bright colors are perfect! Kaleb brought in his little sister, Chloe, for her very first session on Saturday!

Kaleb got in on the fun, too.  :) Did I mention I love the bright colors?

Happy Summer everyone and I hope you had a fun and safe Memorial Day!

Blue Eyed Brothers

These guys get the award for 'Farthest Traveled' because they came all the way from the East Coast! While they are here visiting their grandparents, they decided to stop in and see me! I'm so glad they did!

How stinking adorable are they? I can't get over their blue eyes!

Who doesn't love a little drool action? :)

Thanks again so much for coming to see me!

I had the pleasure of photographing these cute cousins today. I wish I could have had pictures done like this with all my cousins when I was their age! How fun will it be for them to look back at these?

The weather is beautiful and I'm enjoying going outdoors for pictures! The kids were pretty excited, too!

Thanks for coming in! :)

RHS - Class of '10

Every year it has been fun to see the classes below me graduate. But this year I have realized I used to babysit the quite a few of the kids that have graduated in recent years. I'm not old, they're just... young. :) This year my little cousin graduated.. once again, making me feel old. Someone get me a cane!

It was fun to be at the school before the ceremony started. They had a few last minute things to do and you could see all of their smiles getting bigger as the moment came closer.

The ceremony was great. There was laughter and tears through the speeches and slideshow.

After they finally received their diplomas, the class let off confetti.. only not at the same time. I think they all did it at separate times! It was pretty funny to watch. Next time they will have to read the directions first! :)

Congratulations to all the recent graduates! I wish you all the best of luck. Show the world what you got!

My Vacation!

I went on a vacation. Yes.. I was pretty shocked, too. I went down to Nebraska to visit my brother and sister in law when I realized I had more than a day off!

Dooker and Oliver got to play together! They ran around outside and then slept for most of the day. Bums!

I got to see the Tri-City Storm's arena. It was pretty neat. There was no ice on the rink as it's the off season, but still pretty cool. (No pun intended.) :p

I also went to the Great Platte River Road Archway. You can see it near Kearney when you are on Interstate 80. Well, you just won't see it, you'll go under it!

Inside was even better than the outside! Each section was full of interesting things about the past. The displays were very impressive!

Can I borrow a quarter?

One of my favorite parts. I loved all the features they put in the displays.

The diner had a great atmosphere, but the service was a little slow. ;)

There it is! A glimpse into the few days I took off! I had fun, but now it's back to work and school.

This just in...

For those that know me, I am not the most spontaneous person. I like to plan things way ahead of time! Well, I don't have any sessions this weekend and these are really the only days I have available for a vacation this summer. I decided about an hour ago that I'm going to take those few days off for vacation! I'm going to head out of state to see my brother and sister-in-law. I won't be around to respond to emails or phone calls until Sunday night! For those who are surprised, I have been planning my trip/timeline for the past hour. :)  I have a lot left to plan so have a great rest of the week and weekend!

And because a blog post is boring with some eye candy....

Katie is 1!

Little Miss Katie Lynn turned one a few weeks ago and she came to visit me over the weekend. :) She explored around outside and discovered all the new things that are Spring!

She kept giving me so many serious faces! She must think modeling is serious business! :)

Happy Mother's Day!

To all you Mom's out there.. I wish you the best day of being surrounded by those that you love! Now put your feet up, relax, and enjoy the beautiful things in life!

I'd also like to post about an awesome contest! ColorInc and My Funky Camera are teaming up to give away a camera strap! She has all sorts of styles and even some for point and shoots. I love my wristlet! Maybe something to check into for next Mother's Day! ;)
