D.C. photo shoot

At the beginning of April, my husband and I took a wonderful trip to Washington D.C. I had never been there or anywhere back East, for that matter, so I was pretty excited. We were there for 8 glorious days, but the best part is that we left our kids here in Albuquerque!







While we were there, we were able to stay a few nights with my dear friend Sara and here cute family. We have been friends since before we were even old enough to be friends! As a thank you for putting us up while we were there I did a photo shoot for her of her kids! I must add that her kids are gorgeous, just like their mother!


Her oldest son was less than excited for the photo shoot. A funny story about him. Before we had the photo session and while we waited for the light to get just right, Mitch and I went to Arlington Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Memorial.

As we were leaving, her oldest son asked, “Are you guys leaving for the airport?”


I answered, “No, we’re going sightseeing and then we will be back to take some pictures of you guys.”



He, rolled his eyes and said, a bit annoyed, “You can just get some pictures of us from my mom!” 








I just chuckled and said, “Actually, I am taking pictures of you FOR your mom!”

Next up were Ian and Elly. These two have a special place in my heart. They were so precious! One night at dinner they both wanted to sit next to me. After about a minute the “discussion” got pretty loud and slightly argumentative. Their dad had already asked them to stop arguing, so finally they both were banned from sitting next to me at dinner! It was so sweet that they both wanted to sit by me so badly! I just love kids!




ook at those blue eyes! Stunning, aren’t they?




Little Miss Elly. She is the only girl amongst all these boys. Give her a few years and she will be breaking hearts left and right!



The eyes!!



And, then, of course, we have the sweet little Marcus! I just wanted to eat him up the whole time we were there!
