Best friends Birthday Party!

Yesterday, we had a great day going to Gracie and Emma's friends birthday party.  It was a joint party, so smart, with friends Bailey and Jace, both who are in Emma's class at school.  The girls had a blast and I got some cute photos of them at the party....sorry Jace, I didn't get any of your sweet face. :(





Happy Birthday Bailey!

Iheartfaces photo challenge:week 37 Vroom, vroom

This week's photo challenge on Iheartfaces is Vroom, vroom...a photo showing a face and some form of transportation.  My husband's favorite form of transportation is flying a Cobra, AH-1.  He is truly living his dream of being a pilot, and feels blessed to have such a great job that he LOVES.  Here is a pic that somebody took while he was on deployment  in Iraq.  The quality of the picture is poor, b/c nobody had good cameras over there, but I had fun playing around with different actions and textures on this picture.

My guy is in the middle, and forgive the mustaches....that is a right of passage during the first deployment....they all grow them....GROSS!  Check out the other entries here!  I have learned alot from visiting other peoples sites!

More Ohio fun!

The Columbus zoo was incredible.  It reminded me of theme parks with all the different countries you could visit, and everything in that area was themed.  The girls loved it!  Their favorite was probably the polar bears.....there was an underground viewing area, and you could watch the polar bears play!  Pretty cool....Gracie liked the fact that they were sisters, and they liked to fight and wrestle like she and Emma play. :)  I love this picture of Steven holding his little girls!  So sweet!


The reptile house was really cool, the kiddos were pretty excited to pet the snake, until they actually got up to it.....even brave Emma was pretty scared!


Sweet Gracie!

Only family pic of our whole trip!  The weather was so and felt amazing for this pregnant lady! :)

Emma is obsessed with riding in strollers, which is good, I think.....She wanted to ride the WHOLE time, but then wanted out to see the animals....not too fun getting her in and out.

Little Emma, taken at a park in downtown Columbus.  We wanted to eat at the German restaurant featured in Man vs. Food, but the wait was over an we just bought some chocolates, and cream puffs and ate at a fabulous mexican restaurant.  Love this pic of Emma, too bad I had to crop Gracie out of all the pics....she was making weird faces! :)


Me and sad she moved away....She is one of those friends who after hanging out with her for a few days, I feel like I can be a better mom and wife....she teaches me so much!  Love ya Liz!

Before and After Pixel Perfect Bloghop

This is my first time posting on the pixel perfect bloghop.  This blog has really helped me learn about what other photographers, or moms with cameras, do to edit their pics.  Here is my SOOC shot: straight out of the camera

And here is my edited pic.  I used Everyday elements hollywood action, coffeshop rita's butterscotch vintage action...then I adjusted the color my self.  I also added a tiny bit of sunflare using coffeeshop rita's sunflare action.  Love all those free actions!
I love how this pic turned out!

First day of dance class!


The girls had a great time at dance class today.....Emma loved going with the "big girls."  I'm not sure if we will continue because of the cost and all of my million of dr's appointments starting.  I'm going to have at least 2-3 a week before the baby is born besides preschool twice a week, but they had a great time today!
