Before our week stay at the hospital, I had the chance to take pictures of a very unique family. The hadn't gotten together for at least three years due to some of them being over seas. When I walked in the house there was a Christmas tree set up... yes in June! I really didn't think anything of it because I was focused on where I was going to put all of them. Anyway they tell me that because this is the only chance they have to get together they were celebrating all of the holidays in three days. They had Valentines Day for breakfast, Cinco de Mayo for lunch, and Christmas was at supper time!
This family was so much fun! After their regular pictures they all dressed up in goofy clothes so they could have a silly picture. The funny thing was, they wanted to take it inside the house not outside in the yard. I was informed that some of them still had to live in the neighborhood after the weekend was over and didn't want the neighbors to see them! Too funny!!
Here is a couple from the shoot.
I tried shooting fireworks again this year. I played with my settings until I got them where I liked it. I took a whopping 146 pictures, eek!! Of, course not all of them were very good. When I started out everything was black. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with my settings. My advice from first hand experience..... check to see if you left the lens cap on!
I can't believe it has been three weeks since I have posted anything! It has been really crazy around here. We spent a week with my daughter in the hospital. She got a virus that cause her to not be able to keep her seizure meds down. That led to major seizure activity which led to a late night trip to the ER. They ended up pumping her with a major medication dose and put her in the ICU. We were in the hospital for full 7 days!
After that it was our 17th anniversary which we spent at Six Flags. That is where we went for our honeymoon. We both were very young!! Then company was here. My husband's family came to visit for the 4th.
I also was working on promoting with Jordan Essentials. I was challenged to make director in training by July and I achieved it. I will be crowned at convention this month!!
My husband has been doing great holding down the fort at home, including taking my son to baseball practice. This is his first year playing baseball and he loves it. He told me he thinks this is his sport. Here are some pictures from the last game that I was able to be at.
He blows out his cheeks just like he does in basketball!
Whoops focus point on fence not child!
Made it to 2nd!
