Well I finally managed to get a couple of pictures of both of my kids together. I haven't been able to get a decent one of them together since Brent was 5 weeks old! No, these recents still aren't perfection, but they'll certainly do! My children are constantly photographed and constantly fussing about it, so to get a decent one of them together just thrills me to pieces! As a photographer, it's much more difficult to take pictures of my own kids than it is of other children. Whew! A lot of work, but well worth it.

We went to a really pretty place downtown Athens. It ws so pretty!

My 9 Month Old Son in a Teacup...

Okay, so I felt I HAD to do something for his 9 month pictures but I just wasn't sure what. When I saw this teacup, I knew just what to do with it.

What a ham he is! He loves having his picture taken...for now.

Her "Big Girl Bike"

Ashlyn got a bicycle for her birthday. She calls it her "big girl bike." She's getting the hang of it. So much fun to watch.

Happy Birthday, Ashlyn!

We celebrated Ashlyn's 3rd birthday on the 12th at our house and had a great time. There a lot more people than I anticipated, but there was plenty of food and fun to go round! Ashlyn stayed in her bathing suit the entire time since she and her little friends were in and out of the pools the whole time.

My sweet little baby girl...Yesterday she was a soft, warm, pink bundle resting content and helpless in my arms...And now today, here she is with her own opinions and joyous giggles. I love her so much.

Playing on the SLide

Ashlyn loves playing on her friend Layton's slide. She has so much fun on that thing! I wish we had some shade in our yard. Then we could get one for her to have as her own. Right now, without shade, I'm afraid the hot sun would make the slide too hot to sit on.

She still has fun going to Layton's house to visit and play!


I hve two of the most water-loving kids on this earth! Ashlyn could LIVE in the pool if I let her. Everytime a commercial comes on that has a beach scene in it, she always says, "I wanna go there!" And I always say, "Me too." Hopefully we'll get to go at toward the end of August...

Ashlyn's First Fishing Adventure!

We went out to Corey & Erica's house and fished their pond. It didn't take long at all for Ashlyn to catch her first fish! A little big mouth bass with her tiny Dora fishing pole! She was so scared of it. It was so funny! And a lot of fun. I'm so glad I was able to document this time in her little life.
