2013 POPS

I had these big plans.  Plans to get caught up with stuff during my vacation between Christ mad and New Years.  Like get caught up with blogging and housekeeping things.  Unfortunately, my health had other plans and I’ve been laid out with a bad cold.  So instead of knocking things off my to-do list the last 2 days of 2013 I was laid out on the couch with a horrible, horrible, no good hacking cough.  Anywho…  Enough about me, how about some former going ons.

Back in September some of my family and friends went to the annual POPS concert at Gallo Park.  We picniced, ob-la-di’ed with “The Beatles”, and watched fireworks at the end of the night.  As you can see, we had fun!

Nolan turns 1!

Look at this handsome little man!  Not only is he handsome, he’s now one year old!  And I’m honored that I got to capture this moment in time for his family, not only by taking his 1 year portraits, but also by getting to attend his party.  Camera in hand of course.  🙂

Nolan wasn’t quite walking at the time.  But he sure stands like a champ!

Then it was party time!  Including a bounce house.  Honestly, what did parents do back when there weren’t bounce houses?  Pin the tail on the donkey?

Papa even tried to get Nolan to take his first steps.  Nope, didn’t work.  2013-10 Nolan - 143

Hot August Nights – sailing style

Back in August we, as a family…kinda… went up to the Stockton Sail Club for their Hot August Nights.  Then we went on a sunset sail.  The clouds…OMG!  They were phenomenal!  A storm was rolling in, or out I can’t remember, so they were big and billow-y, and pillow-y, and pink!  Just wait, you’ll see.  🙂

Dad and Stephen drove up in the Tiger, and enter it into the competition.  It didn’t win… 🙁 but it was still fun to see it all shined up and people admiring it!

Oh you know, just some random HUGE house on the delta… no big deal.


Random boat pieces and parts.  I just might have some printed onto canvases for Titus’ nautical themed nursery…

Being that the delta is a channel, or many channels, of water leading in from the Bay, there are some big shipping boats that come in during high tide.  Like this monstrosity.

We went just about to I-5 then turned around (see bottom picture).

Then we cruised our way back to the marina and headed home for the night.  Needless to say it was a good night!

2013.10 Paige’s Maternity

Ahhhhhhhh!  That’s all I have to say about this.’. EXCITED!  The beauty that you see below is my sister.  My very pregnant sister, who is due to have my nephew in the next week or 2.  Paige and Coleman are bring the first grandchild on BOTH sides of the family.  So, needless to say, this boy will be loved.

Paige’s baby shower was at the end of October.  After the party I convinced her to sneak out of the house for a few quick minutes to take some maternity pictures.  So away we went.  And Kaitlin came to hang out for some sister time.  🙂

Downtown Clovis is just a few short minutes from their place, and that’s where Paige suggested we go.  And I’m glad we did.  Look how gorgeous these huge wooden doors are.  Thank you fireman for letting us use your doors for pictures!

There are brick walls everywhere!  The texture is just so cool.  Isn’t Paige just glowing?!?!

Please tell me the bow looks like a bow tie…  The shower theme was little man, and the clip on bow ties were part of a game and favor.  I had one in my hair and said, here use it!  I’m hoping the green is making it more “manly”.

Eden turns 1!

Over the summer I was contacted by a high school classmate and friend of mine asking if I could take her daughter’s 1 year pictures.  Of course I said yes!  Taking pictures from classmates is always a good time to catch up and see their cute kiddos.  And let me tell you, Eden is a cutie!

We started off by taking some pictures of the 3 of them.  The family.  Then I took some of just Eden alone.  Wait until you see how cute she is in her little outfit…

Eden the ladybug!  And when she crawls, she’s quick!

Eden is a fall baby.  And we were at a local pumpkin patch.  So duh, pumpkins were involved!
