Birthday Pictures...Round 1!

Our little Caleb turns 3 this weekend! So, we all went to the beach earlier this week to take his birthday pictures. He loves going to the beach. We all do!
It was the hardest thing for him to leave the sand alone.
I tried to get real smiles out of him, but that was difficult, too:
Daddy made him laugh.
Here's a camera smile:

He just wanted to get on with playing in the sand.
Chris had the idea to have him stand on the chair.
This made for some cute photos.
And, of course, he had to jump off.

Daddy was being silly again, making Caleb laugh.
Then I just had to relax a little and let him play.

I love how these next 2 turned out.

Then I let him go walking while holding on to the balloons.

I love the photos I got...until he loosened his grip on his balloons and they flew away. I told him they flew up to God and that I would buy him some new ones.
He was pretty sad, but he felt better when I changed him into his bathing suit and let him play.
Can you feel the love in this picture?
And here's Laura Anne, having a moment. :)
I'm not done with birthday pictures though! I really want to take him to the railroad tracks. Hopefully we will get the chance to do that soon.

Cute Little Horsey....And Baby Too!

Chris and I bought my horse-loving sister this little statue years ago. When we were visiting a few weeks ago, I thought it would be cute to sit Stellan next to it for some pictures. I was right. Pretty darn cute if you ask me!

Sorry I've been MIA for the past couple weeks. We've been busy! My little brother got married this past weekend and we spent the few days before that in Jacksonville visiting with family.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from the wedding week:
Grampy with 3 of his great-grandchildren:
All 4 of my handsome brothers:
Fun with the mustache sticks!

I'm disappointed because I wanted to make a slideshow with music but One True Media changed their free options and the slideshow would have had to be 30 seconds or less. Boo! So anyway, I had to settle for a non-musical slideshow with Photobucket. Enjoy!

**It seems the slideshow is acting up a little. If it's not showing up for you, click "view all images" and it should take you to it.**
