We went to a sushi/hibachi place for my birthday dinner and the boys were crazy crazy crazy. It was not a night to push our luck and go out for dessert. After dinner I told Jon to make a detour at home so I could grab my camera and some white shirts for the boys because I knew the perfect place to pick up dessert to go and I had always wanted to take pictures at this place around sunset.
Did that picture make you smile a little bit?
How about this one?
Then surely THIS ONE will bring a smile to the coldest of hearts.
It was a pretty sweet birthday present. Finally getting pictures in this place I imagined. Letting the boys go crazy running in the grass.
Nate and I also got some time alone while I was taking pictures.
Does he ever hate getting his picture taken!
And his chin is really jacked from a nasty spill he took before the race Saturday. He completely freaks when you take the band-aid off.
But this place has ground the same color as his eyes and I had this idea for a photo planned out in my head for awhile.
So... to keep it real.
I took the photos at an empty lot in the parking lot of our local grocery store Harris Teeter (or as Jon and I call it, the H Tizzo). Looks like a fancy schmancy park huh? Jon was lookout to make sure the boys didn't run into the parking lot. He was also tick checker afterward. And when people say my camera takes nice pictures, I'd like to show them this picture because nice cameras can take bad pictures.
After taking some pictures, we grabbed some desserts from their bakery and headed home.
Also keeping it real?
I wanted to take pictures this direction so you wouldn't see the power lines but the boys were incredibly uncooperative. Another day, maybe.
Oh and the reason I had some alone time with Nate? Alex was busy pooping at the H Tizzo halfway through the photo shoot.
I could have just posted some pretty pictures for you but that's not really the whole story now is it?
