I adore him.
He may be old, gray, and a tad bit on the grouchy side these days. But, I just love him. He's been the best little companion for the last 14 years. He doesn't do much these days besides spend the better part of life on the couch. So, we decided it was time to take him for a walk.

Lots of weeds to sniff and pee on. Tee, hee.

He was all about running ahead of Lizzie and trying to keep up.

In the end, we had a hard time keeping up with him. I think he had a wonderful time. Just look at that doggie smile.

I just adore him.

Thanks Ronald.
On a record breaking 94 degree day, all I have to say is "thank you" Ronald McDonald for cooking my family supper!

Coy and his "fry" burger.

Keep cool!

Katie & Justin ~ Engagement.
Two weekends ago, I had the honor of photographing Katie and Justin's engagement. And, together, they make a perfect pair. This session included a red barn, red cherries and an awesome pair of red high heel shoes, not to mention an amazingly, beautiful couple!

It also included their beautiful daughter as well! She was such a cutie!

But if you know me, I always have TONS of favorites! So this is just a glimpse of such an amazing session.

Katie and Justin - Thank you for spending a hot summer's night with me and making this so much fun!! I absolutely cannot wait for the end of the month to shoot what I know is going to be a fantastic wedding!!

So, click below to view all of their images!

The "fake" beach.
First, just let me clarify, Raystown Lake will never compare to the beach in my book. But, to my kids....this is the "beach". It is where we spent our Fourth of July holiday. If you look really closely, you can find things that would resemble certain beach scenes. Like this little patch of grass growing up through the sand. Wait....let me clarify sand at Lake Raystown. It is more should I put this? More like....MUD!

You can also occasionally find what might resemble a seashell. But, where do seashells come from when it is a man made lake?

Lots and lots of beach toys to play in the mud....I mean sand!

Of course, some sand castle building along the way. Some waves, occasionally, when the really "big" boats drive by. AJ, my nephew, absolutely loved the water and the mud...I mean sand again! You know me....some feet shots!

The gang.

The whole gang burrying my other nephew, Trent, in the mud....ooops...I mean sand again!! And, it was not just me who is kind of grossed out by the mud, my sister was really grossed out that her son was being burried in the mud. She wouldn't even look that way - I had to text message her a picture to show what they were up too!!
More playing.
Coy loves the water as well.
He will hang around on the shoreline forever and just build and dig all these tunnels.
This little one likes the shoreline as well.

It is kind of nice all the "beachy" kind of finds. But, I am holding out for the real "beach vacation". I am sure once they play in "real sand" they will never want to go back to this mud!!!

My freckled, beach bum.
The last few days we have been total beach bums. Including this freckled li'l boy.

It is so hard getting back into daily grind and groove of things. We are still all in VK mode.

Wishing the weekend gets here fast!!!!!
