Busy Summer!

Where has summer gone!  It's hard to believe that August is almost over!  I have been incredibly busy, not only with photography but also with family events.  With 2 birthdays and beach trip,  I thought I would share a few moment from our summer vacation. First was B's 10th birthday party!  I can't believe I have a 10 year old!  He chose to have a pool party with a Tropial theme!

Cupcakes in Ice Cream Cones! 

A beautiful sunset at the pool!

Two days after the party, we left for the beach.  The beach is a lot of fun but also a lot of work when you take 6 kids with you!  We also picked one of the hottest weeks of the year to be there.  The heat index was about 120 most of the week!  We took the kids to the mall and to see 2 movies just to get them out of the sun for the afternoon!  Most of our beach time was in the evening when the sun was down.  This made for some interesting shots!

The pool water was a little like bath water!  The kids didn't mind!

Our favorite beach pasttime!!!!  Yummy!

I did get up early one morning to see the sunrise.  I was a little dissappointed at first because I didn't get anything really amazing, but after we were home and I looked again, I thought they were really cool!

We had only been back 1 day before we celebrated Rachel's birthday.  For her 4th we decided to take her to Natural Bridge Zoo.  She had lot of fun feeding the animals!

Not this one, of course!

This little guy just stood at the fence looking so pitiful.  I think Rachel fed him her entire bag!

I think he was trying to stay cool, maybe!?!

The flamingos were a big hit because they were pink!

Because all ballerinas must wear pink and have pink cakes!

Now I have one more summer birthday, the start of school and several weddings to work on! Check back for more!  Happy summer!
