fun fun weekend!

We are having an AWESOME weekend. Katie, her husband, Nathan, and their two girls are here for the weekend. We've eaten SO MUCH and the kids have played well together. Yesterday morning, after dressing change, we went to downtown Kernersville and I took some photos (with Katie's direction, she's the one who really knows what she's doing) of their family. Since Katie's always the one taking them, they have hardly any of the four of them together. We had a good time, despite the cold, and got a few super cute ones! The boys (minus Jonah, who was overdue for a nap) went to the Wake vs. Virginia game (WAKE FINALLY WON ONE!). Katie and I put Jonah and Quinn down to nap and we...


... acted like 15 year old girls, put on girly dresses, leggings, and boots, went out in the yard and took photos of each other. Yep, we sure did. And it was so fun, and we laughed A LOT. Katie did super great clean edits and I played with my Totally Rad presets and turned us funny colors. Cause that's just how I roll. Here are a few of my favorites. (And oh my word, I am DIGGIN' my haircut. Shannon at Mane Event rocks my socks.) These are Katie's edits.

I love all of them but I really love the ones of you in the black! You look great!

Also totally jealous that you can go outside in a dress. I'm in NY... snow snow and more snow. Oh, and some slush and ice. Yanno, the fun stuff.

Regina said...

Man! You did great and look awesome! Love the yellow dress. You totally rocked it! And love the hair cut. Can't wait to see it shorter if you decide to go there. I always say you can always grow it back out. It takes guts to cut it off but almost always looks great! You did great with the photo's too! Jonah is so handsome and such a big boy riding his new toy! Way to go Jonah! We are all cheering for you!
