Justin & Lauren – A Surprise Engagement

Saturday, April 17th, 2010
To tell you how lucky I felt today to be apart of this photo session would not even begin to compare to how lucky my friend Lauren felt. Her new fiance (ha! does that sound funny yet Lauren?) Justin was kind enough to allow me to photograph his proposal to her.

I told them I wanted to practice taking photos of couples…probably should include their heads too…Justin’s knees don’t look too weak at all…yet.

So we ran around, got some fun shots and they did everything I asked without complaining (thanks guys!)

All of this started out in the rain…the lighting was perfect

Ok are they cute or what?!

Justin hid the ring in my camera bag, and when he was ready, he got down on one knee

Lauren said “YES!” – thank goodness or that would have been kinda wierd…

Happy Spring!

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010
Spring in Texas means bluebonnets. When you had a winter like we did (lots and lots of repeat freezes) then you are bound to have a Hill Country with a blanket of blue. We ventured out on Sunday and found the perfect spot…

Blastin’ Off

Sunday, April 11th, 2010
Back in the 60’s Rice University donated land to the government to start a crazy little program called NASA. They named the facility The Johnson Space Center, after the vice president at the time. Not too many years later they built a rocket there and went to the moon.
So thankful for a beautiful day we packed up the kids and headed down with Grandma and Grandpa.

There was lots of cool stuff to see and do…and we got to stand in line a lot..

Now that tower on the right we climed in a slow revolving glass gondola great for taking picures…

So this one ride drove excitement in the twins to try out some more stuff…

Here is Logan on the “Bouncer” going up…

and coming down..

He was so brave during the 3 minute ride, He quickly announced he needed a much calmer ride

Photobucket

So they headed to the Ferris Wheel

I don’t blame him, I rather keep my feet on the ground too.

Last day to be 5

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010
Surprise Breakfast Birthday Party is planned! Although they figured out that tomorrow is their birthday and are having a heck of a time falling asleep right now, we somehow managed to fulfill all their hopes and dreams to celebrate turning 6.
A trip to Build-A-Bear, lunch at Souper Salad, bowling, dinner at James Coney Island for cheese fries and top it all off with an ice-cream cake from Baskin Robins. Everything is planned out, I needed just one last picture of them being 5.

Ok boys, sit next to Jonah, and just look at mom…now smile!
Photobucket

They are crazy! We loved 5, and I just know 6 is going to be awesome!
Happy Birthday Isaac and Logan! You are AMAZING dudes!
