Zoo-4

Oh and did she!! The title of this post is Cade’s quote of the day to Jaime!!

Today, Jaime (aka The Blonde Photographer) and I took the kids to the National Zoo in DC. We had a blast!! Jaime met my children for the first time today and I must say they hit it off famously! Jaime is a huge ball of energy and so are my kids…so I knew the end of result of their meeting would be explosive. I was definitely in fear of Jaime’s life a few times – the boys tackled her a few times and then Cade knee dropped her ( in the face)…but rest assured she is fine! I think! Haha! After the zoo, we headed back to Chinatown to relax at Jaime’s and have some sushi. It was definitely a long day… but a good one:) Thanks Jaime for spending the day with us!!!

This afternoon, my mother, the kids and I all headed up to Baltimore to spend a few fun filled hours at Port Discovery in downtown Baltimore. If you have children and live in MD or ever go to MD to visit, this is definitely a stop that needs to be added to the itinerary. The kids had such a great time… as did I watching them play! Joce and Reece even passed out on the car ride home!! Here are a couple of fun pictures from our day!

Here are the kids before heading inside. Oh yay, a kid’s museum. Don’t they look so excited?! (Whomp, Whomp)

Hello Everyone!!

I entered 2 of my images into the first annual Flare Competition and both made it to the week 6 finals. I need your votes to win a spot into the judges finals…so can everyone please take a few moments and head over to the Flare Competition Blog  to vote for Newborn Baby Flare… it is photo #5. I do have 2 photos in the running but I figured it would be best to pool votes for one picture rather than splitting the votes between the 2 pictures…I didn’t expect both to make it!!  The voting box is a bit tricky to find, you have to scroll down past the week 7 finalists voting box…it  is located on the right hand side of the page. Please pass the site on to anyone else that you think will vote. Thank you!!!!

Friday afternoon, our friends Scott & Antonella & their two daughters, Mia and Athena, stopped in on their way through town for a short visit. I definitely love visiting with old friends… but the visits really don’t ever seem long enough! Here are a couple of pictures I snapped of the girls while they were here:)

Mia was not sure what to think of the camera….or maybe it as me she was unsure of. haha

This evening, I got to hang with Graison, Stephanie & Chris for a fun filled 1 year old session. The session started with tears (not mine), but ended with lots of laughter. Graison is an absolute doll and I had so much fun photographing her. This was our 3rd or 4th attempt at a session (I lost count!), as we kept getting rained out….so I was very thankful for sunny skies!! Stephanie, Chris and Graison thank you for spending your Thursday evening with me!! And yes, this is the fastest I have ever blogged anything! I wanted to make sure I got these done before heading out of town this weekend!
