My Camera's 1st Wedding

Last week we traveled to southern California for a wedding. Our friend Chris was marrying his beautiful Bride. Chris is a great guy that is now married to a wonderful woman! We became friends with Chris in college, he was once my Husband's housemate, and was the videographer for our Wedding. We were so excited to get an invitation to his wedding and be able to make it! I was also thrilled because it would be the 1st time my camera was in attendance at a wedding! Here are some pictures to enjoy from the beautiful union!





































































Congratulations Chris and Bernadette! We are so happy for your beautiful union!

Baby Love...

I will have to admit that I miss being pregnant, okay just a lil bit. With my last pregnancy I had the pleasure of being pregnant with one of my dear friends. It was fun to share the journey with such a wonderful person ! Even though we now reside in Northern California and she still resides in Southern we were able to share our pregnancy journey with each other miles away. The picture above was from her Northern Cali Baby Shower(their family lives close to us). She was 31 weeks and I was 33 weeks pregnant!
These are the proud Daddy's! Our baby girl and their baby boy was around 3 months and meeting for the first time!





Now these 2 munchkins are 8 months old! Their parents are chasing them around the room as they crawl, climb, and try to put EVERYTHING in their mouth. We were honored last week when our friends opened up their home and showed us some lovely overnight hospitality! It was also so fun watching these two roll around and play that I had to snap,snap,and snap away!





























They even had a pretty Lady come over and add her spice to the fun!



















We shall see if this Lil Man and Lil Lady will find more interest in each other 20 something years from now....I am just saying that it is a possibility!!!
