this weekend was jam packed with stuff! we had homecoming, my class reunion, and two different sets of family pictures. even though it was crazy busy and almost impossible to pack for, it was so fun. i secretly love having that much going on!
friday was the homecoming parade and somehow i was roped into putting together the alumni cheer float. oh heavens. thanks to whit, we ended up with an awesome truck and trailer to pull us around. kayla helped me gets some signs done and it all came together. i had some awesome girls come volunteer to ride the float with us. we threw candy and had a great time mostly just chatting on the float. next year, i will not be in the homecoming parade. i'm hanging up that hat for awhile.
a HUGE thanks to my sisters who always support me.
after the parade, everyone but whit and i (plus our 4 kiddlets) went to the football game. whit and i relaxed at home, as much as you can with two toddlers and two infants, and enjoyed just being able to hang out together. we had a late night and got up nice and early to get ready for our first set of pictures. kayla was so nice to be willing when i asked her to take pictures for us this fall. we drove down to provo so that we could get pictures in an orchard that i've been dying to get pictures in for years! everyone teased me over this obsession but the pictures are proof that it was totally worth it and made me even more excited to go back there and do them again!
here are a few of my favorites!
i love them so much! kayla knows exactly what i want and got so many shots that i will treasure forever! now i have to try and pick one for our christmas card. impossible!
sunday evening was our second round of pictures. this time it was with my parents, siblings and their spouses, and all four grandkids. kayla took these as well and again did not disappoint. she had some grumpies and crazy toddlers to work with. it had been over five years since we had family pictures taken so we were due. kayla and judd found a beautiful spot in oakley and the pictures turned out awesome. pictures are just one of those things that make me so happy! family pictures especially. i'm so grateful to have both sets of these from this weekend to cherish and treasure forever. they are definitely keepers.
see for yourself!
i love this next one. not staged at all, as soon as the timer on the camera was about to go off, livi decided to make a run for it. so funny!
