Senior Pics…round 2

Finished up taking our Beeee-U-tiful Kia’s Senior pics yesterday…

Low winds…

Yay!

Here’s a few of my faves ūüôā

Not because they’re the best or most suitable for framing….

Just ‘cuz they were fun!

We giggled when we walked back to the house to view the pics and found this one!

This Kid is so much fun to be around, I just love her…

A matter of opinion and a gorgeous girl…

Yesterday I took Senior pictures of my Kia, cuz her Mommy (Bambi-Lou) asked me to. And cuz I heart them both…

It’s hard to get a bad picture of a girl who’s gorgeous and fun and up for anything, but the WIND yesterday was NOT our friend and ruined some pretty shots for us. Stooopid wind…

Out of 149 shots, I edited down to about 25. Because I tend to hold the shutter down and just go “click click click” ending up with 15 shots that look exactly the same I had a lot of duplicates that got deleted, also a few that in my head the pose/location was great but in reality looked awkward (hate that)…and then the ones kiboshed by the wind which were still fun but not suitable for framing!

In spite of it all, I did get some good ones:

This one is my fav, I love the light!

This one is Kia’s fav, she loved the red doors! I want to go back and redo this one, I could have framed it better….

IMG_2954

This is her Mommy’s fav, she likes the big smiles!

IMG_2991

Britt loved this one, I think because she loves that crazy tree at the park!

IMG_2980

This one’s just gorgeous to me…

This one’s just FUN!

You know it’s windy when it messes up SHORT hair!

We’re going for round 2 in a few days when Kia’s work schedule and THE WIND coincide, new locations, new giggles and a new day spent with a delightful girl. Yay for me!

A Dangerous BabyQ…

Sunday Hubs and I hosted a couples baby shower/family bbq/Bon Voyage/Cinco De Mayo party for Chef Vivi and Captain America…

Shenanigans abounded…

This was the "Night time diaper change advice" display. Everyone wrote a tidbit of wisdom...one simply said "DUCK!" and several said "It's Dan's turn" (Viv denies any knowledge of that)

One of our “Minute to Win it” games. Yes, those are panty hose on our heads. Yes, there was a tennis ball in the toe. Yes, we had to knock down baby bottles. YES, WE LOOKED RIDICULOUS. But we laughed…A LOT!

 

Some of the LOSERS who refused to play cuz they didn’t want to mess up their hair….

 

"Minute to Win it" game 2...we like to call this one "Shake your booty til your balls fall out of your box"....we're inappropriate like that...

Lunch was a burrito buffet that included shredded smoked brisket and chicken, black beans, Viv’s famous homemade salsa, my now famous white queso dip, roasted corn salsa, cilantro lime rice and quacamole. Orange creamsicle cupcakes and apple chimi’s for dessert….

We had a blast!

Many, many thanks to all who attended, made fools of themselves without shame, and ate up most of the food!

The kids arrived safe and sound in Guam this morning. Vivi said she now plans to sleep for 100 years…

Vivi and I found a prize for Peanut on our recent thrift store adventure…

From the moment she spied it in her little play space at Grammy’s house, she approved of our find!

IMG_2607

Like, SERIOUSLY approved…IMG_2608

As in, couldn’t get her out of it when it was time for her to go home…

I think this summer I’ll take it outside and let her cook up some rocks and dirt…

Gravel Souffle’ anyone?

Twig Stew?
