It’s been a dang fine month. And I’m sort of wishing this project was called 25 on 25 or something, cuz I have lots of images I want to share. But I will try to limit it to 11-ish. If you don’t know what this 11 on 11 project is, you can read about it right here.
Let’s get this party started. If you saw last month’s post, then you know my daughter turned 10. I had fun with her pictures for that. She celebrated her birthday with her friends at a gymnastics place. She had a blast. And because I didn’t want any leftover cake, those kids got the BIGGEST pieces of cake ever. LOL. I don’t think any of them even finished their plate.
We went for a hike. It was a really pretty day.
My daughter was having a grand ol’ time.
My son… well, he was sighing heavily because I made him stand there for 2 seconds. Poor child of a photographer.
The planets aligned this year because all of my siblings’ kids had the same Spring Break. This hasn’t happened in three years.
It. Was. Awesome.
I love my family.
Of course, we had to go to Target. And in a rare moment, the dude WANTED me to take his picture. Shocking. Seriously.
We went to Japantown in San Francisco. I am in love with this wall.
And for a very strange reason, my daughter’s head grew very very big. Her usually normal sized hat now looked incredibly small. Weird.
My niece is actually a panda with duck lips.
And my nephew is uber cool.
My niece is seriously just the cutest little girl. I adore her little underbite and her voice and her giggle. She’s fantastic.
This is my youngest nephew. He’s in love with my kids, especially my daughter. He is energetic and adorable. I swear, my siblings make really cute kids.
Um, 11 is not enough pictures when my entire family was here. Don’t count. I can’t stop.
My dad has a photography gallery going on right now. He’s an incredibly talented photographer.
My mom continues to fight hard. She starts “maintenance chemo” this week. Hoping those brain tumors get the message and just stay the heck away. I love the relationship my daughter and mom have. It makes me melt. That one on the left was a simultaneous blink from the two biggest blinkers in my family. I love it. I love them.
OK. Let’s pretend that I have now shared 10 images. I will now share my 11th image! A self portrait of sorts. A family self portrait at that!
The story that goes along with this picture is a doozy. If I ever see you in person, you should ask me about it. Let’s just say it’s a miracle that this picture happened with relatively everyone smiling. Most of the spouses couldn’t make it since they have non-school jobs and don’t get a Spring Break. My sister in law was respresentin’ the in-laws. She’s aces.
And one last one of my parents and their four children. The one in the striped shirt is their favorite. Obviously.
I had to do some serious culling to get that down to 11, or um, close to 11. Next up is the insanely talented Sallykate Photography. She’s such an amazing photographer, and I am honored to be part of this blog circle with her. Go check her out. She just got a fisheye lens, I’m just gonna take a guess that MAYBE she’s showing some of that stuff off over there.
