Grandma Virginia and Uncle Paul Visit!

They came up for Spring break and we had so much fun! Charlotte loved having them here!

Arriving at the Airport:

The next day we went to the Japanese Gardens:

Close up!

After the Japanese Garden we went to lunch at The Roadhouse. They wanted something local, and this place is pretty local! It was so yummy.

We have lots more pictures that we will post soon!

Day Forty Eight, Day Forty Nine, Day Fifty

The great thing about having out of town guests is that you visit so many places. For me this means lots of picture taking opportunity!

Day Forty Eight
This was at the Japanese Garden

Day Forty Nine
At the waterfalls

Day Fifty
Seaside, Oregon

Just one from today!

Grandma Virginia and uncle Paul are in town, and we went to Seaside. It's along the Oregon coast. This was Charlotte's first trip to the beach! She wasn't too fond of the freezing cold water, but liked the rest of the trip.

Just thought this one was too cute not to share!

Day Forty Six

What crazy weather we had today! It was cold and cloudy, then it hailed, then the sun came out. When the skies cleared a bit it was so blue and beautiful!

Day Forty Five

More practice with the kitty, Isabelle. I really need to take some more day time pictures! I just have more time once Charlotte goes to bed. Thank goodness the sun is staying out longer and longer!

Day Forty Four

I just love this picture! I know it's not perfect, but it has a lot of meaning to me anyways. Next time I just need them both in perfect focus...

Day Forty Three

Daisy again. I was trying out ISO over 2000, and it rocks (even if my focus wasn't perfect)! Just some photography lingo there.

Day Forty Three

Today we went to The Roadhouse (a restaurant) in Beaverton. Yummy. I did so well on weight watchers this week, so this was s treat. The grounds at this restaurant are lovely.

Day Forty One and Day Forty Two

Day Forty One
Why yes, it is plastic! I don't really have a green thumb and it's pretty hard to kill a plastic plant. There you go.

Day Forty Two
This is yet another one of our pets-Ben!

More at the Waterfront

As promised, here are the rest! Whew! We had way more turn out than I expected, so they took a while to edit. I am finally done though! I will get them to you soon Amanda!

Waterfront Session with Amanda!

Amanda,one of my closest friends, and I went down to the waterfront a few days ago and I took some photographs of her. This was my very first session of someone other than my daughter! We weren't sure how well it would go, but it was great! We had so much fun.

I have so many that I like that i will probably have to break this into a couple posts! So for now, here are a portion of our shoot downtown. I hope you like them Amanda!

I have more to post! I will try to get them up soon!
