Oktoberfest 2013

Many moons ago we, my family, had our something a rather we’re guessing 10th Oktoberfest.  Homemade beer.  Homemade sausage.  Full of friends.  But first we had to lead up to the weekend… Which included a late, after work drive to the San Jose Airport to pick up a surprise secret guest…  Gabe (summer intern) flew out from South Carolina for the weekend!  The surprise on mom’s face the next morning was PRICELESS!

Friday is always the big prep day.  Sometimes the prep party is just as much fun, if not more fun, than the actual event.  It’s when all the magic happens.  This year Friday also happened to be Hilmar’s homecoming.  And the parade pretty much starts in front of my parent’s house. (please note, the below pictures were not taken by me, I’ll let you know when they were).

The men folk stay outside to mix their sausage concoctions.  And then stuff the sausage into links.

Here’s Paige BT (before Titus)!  As cute as she was pregnant, we’re so happy that he’s here!

And the women stay inside to make the strudel.

Then there’s the snacking, munching, and BBQ dinner.  This year’s appetizers included abalone and mountain oysters.

The attack pack!

The next day was more getting ready.  Here’s the few pictures I actually took.  Do you know how hard it is to hold a camera, beer, and strudel at the same time?  You can tell which 2 won… It wasn’t the camera…

Of course, it was fun.  Really fun in fact.  I always look forward to this weekend during the year.  It’s always a great time to plan, create, and reconnect.  While stuffing my face with good food.  🙂

2013.11 Jones Family

Oy vey!  I’m still catching up from the late fall photo sessions that I did.  And I want to make sure that I share them because the people I capture with my camera are all very special, beautiful people.  So please bear with me as I get caught up.  🙂

I love the the Jones family.  There, I said it!  They are a group of cool people.  The dad, Tim, was my realtor.  The mom, was one of my brother’s teachers.  Jacqueline, she makes wine!  And the boys are just a hoot!
