Hallelujah! Summer is here! And that means that I am busy as can be with my kids, so this is gonna be one of those, share quickly and move on type of blog posts.I got kids to tend to and games to play.
First off, we went to San Francisco and rode the cable cars. And you know what? It’s the first time my kids have ridden them. When you live around San Francisco, I guess you tend to not do the touristy type of things. But it was fun.
We happened to go on the day that Vice President Joe Biden was in town. I guess his route intersected the cable car route, so the cable cars were stopped while we waited for him to go by. I didn’t really mind cuz I got this.
Then we were off to Ghiradelli Square for some ice cream. That’s my niece with my brother and sister in law. She’s adorable.
And while we waited for those cable cars, these two had a grand ol’ time. I love their love. It’s perfection.
And while I didn’t shoot this during this last month, I did re-edit this shot. This is my son. He’s got incredible fashion sense. The original had a really busy background, and it had to go. I love what I can do in Photoshop. Why would I re-edit this shot? I needed to find the perfect image to show JOY because my sweet mom got a clear brain MRI. She has fought brain cancer for…gosh, going on 3 1/2 years now, and a clear MRI is reason to celebrate!
And this is the month that I get to take annual pictures of my husband, who works out just a little bit.
I’m teaching my daughter to sew, just like my mom taught me.
My nephew came for a visit.
My brother and his daughter were here too. We played. It was fun.
We went swimming too.
I’m supposed to share a self portrait, but it just hasn’t panned out this month. So, how about I share an old image that my dad took the day I became a mom? The only reason I put my watermark on here is because my dad doesn’t have one. He’s workin’ on it. My dad started my passion for photography a long time ago. He’s awesome, and so is this picture, taken most likely within the first 30 minutes of my daughter’s life.
Next up is the fabulously talented and sweet Fran Barker from Columbus, Ohio. Love her and love her work! Go check her out!
