June was a crazy busy month! We took a looooong road trip to Michigan (26hours one way!!) with my whole family for my grandpa and grandmas 60th anniversary. We drove during the night and for the most part all went well.....as well as it could with a 2 and 4year old! We stopped in St. Louis on the way there and visited the arch and went to the zoo. While in Michigan we took the kids to the sand dunes and to see Lake Michigan.
Only a few days after getting home we left for PK. Chad's family has a reunion there every year. It has always been fun, but I enjoy it even more now that we all have kiddos! They all get along so good and have a blast playing together....(ahem...especially Brock..ha!)
This past weekend was spent in Ft. Worh celebrating Chad's grandparents birthdays. Pictures to come ina few days....
I am so excited!!! So several weeks ago, I looked into going to a photography workshop hosted by Lubbock's Lauren Clark and 3 other excellent photographers.......however, the $3000 it cost (not including air fair) was no where near possible for me. They did offer a scholarship to one individual. You had to do a series of silly things like add them on facebook, send a tweeter, post a blog about Love Affair, ect....you get the point. For every thing you did, your name was entered in the drawing once. It was possible to have your name entered 42 times, I did enough to have my entered 15......which I thought was a hopeless cause!! So today posted live on their blog.......IS MY NAME!!!!! I WON!!! So in July I will head out to Atlanta!
The great part about this story is that over the past several weeks, I have become a bit discouraged. Things are picking up with my photography business, but it is hard getting your name out there. I really started seeking God's help. Photography is consuming a lot of my time (and money), so I want to make sure that it is what the Lord wants me doing! No sense in wasting all my time if it is not in His will....right? I have been asking Him to confirm that this is indeed the direction I should be going, and today when I read my name on that website, I was reminded that He really is listening everytime we whisper His name! He is so good to us all of the time!
Today the kids and I spent most of the day outside in the water. They had so much fun playing in their little pool, and running in the yard! We filled up tons of water balloons and put them in the pool. I sat and laughed at the funny conversations they had with each other. At one point Gage was splashing MacKenna and she said, "No....Gage, me gorgeous!" She is so stubborn!
This last week I had a few photo shoots and thought I would post my favorites! Cali is my good friend Janet's little girl....she's so cute! However, I am partial to red heads....ha!
I had a blast with Megan! She is from Shallowater and is graduating from SPC this May. This girl had the cutest outfits, and of course no outfit is complete with out the perfect accessories.....which she nailed!
