This is Jayden! Jayden is pretty much all boy and he normally does not like posing for pictures. He seems to have much more important things to do! He likes to play!
So, by combining his active personality with an active photo shoot, I was able to get cute pictures with happy smiles!
Of course, the tire swung a little too close to the light from time to time - which caused and occasional image to be over exposed. But, for the most part this was a perfect shoot for such an active little guy!
I had fun.... he had fun.... and Grace helped out by pushing the swing so she even had fun! Then we went to Nations of Fun for even more fun!
Life is short, so we should cram as much fun into it as possible!
Last Thursday was a beautiful spring like day, so Grace and I decided to have a picnic.
I have a new bicycletrailer so we loaded up and went to the pond.
Normally when I go to the pond with Abby, she stays out of the water. But, Grace was having great fun throwing sticks into the pond.... and then telling Abby to "get it!" As nice as the weather was I'm sure Abby was thrilled to have an excuse to hop in!
We saw Canadian Geese. These two were there the entire time, but while we were picnicking an entire flock flew in and landed on the pond.
Here is Grace enjoying her lunch. She told me she likes eating outside.
And here is Abby all wet. By the time we got home we were wet, too. But... I guess that doesn't matter since if we'd been dry we would have gotten wet anyway when giving Abby a bath!
And here is little Gracie in her cowgirl clothes and boots being a country girl. She loved the pond. Some day they are supposed to be building a park in that area, but I think she likes if just the way it is. What could be more fun than a picnic and throwing sticks in the water for your dog to fetch?
I got to keep Brilyn Monday while her Mommy went to their new house to get some painting done. I had planned to take pictures, but Brilyn didn't want me to put her down, so I only took three. Her Mommy brought her back Tuesday and we tried again.
And Brilyn cooperated!
Here she is posing perfectly in a special picture to surprise her Daddy.
This is his first guitar with his firstborn!
We still didn't take that many pictures, but really, we don't need many. We just need one masterpiece from each session and when I saw this, I knew we had gotten it!
I'm sure her Daddy will love it!

This lovely couple will soon be celebrating 50 years of marriage!
I'm grateful that we have couples like this who are able to demonstrate lasting love and a solid marriage. That's getting quite rare in this day and age. And I would guess that this couple has been together awhile, too!
And just look at them. They're still radiant with that glow that only love brings.
So.... no matter what statistics tell us, it's still possible to have a loving marriage that lasts a lifetime. We've just seen proof!
Saturday night was the SJMBC Sweetheart Celebration!
We've done their pictures now for several years and it's always a lot of fun!
This couple is always the life of the party! Not only do they look great together, they get along like a couple of inseparable pals on a school playground. What a blessing it must be for them to be married to their best friend!
And I'll be posting more pictures from St. John's throughout the week!
