Visit with C&C

A couple of weekends ago, the 3 of us took a drive up to Columbus to visit with Em’s birth family. Her birthmom, birthdad, and birthdad’s parents and brother were all there, as well as a couple of friends.  At first, as always, Em was a little on the shy side. But she warmed up pretty quickly since she’s spent a good amount of time with her birthmother.  It was a nice, relaxed afternoon during which she got a ton of playtime, met several new puppies and a tortoise, had her first haircut, and got to play outside at a park. Another really good afternoon, all said.  Here are some of my favorites, but the rest can be seen here.

Newport and Vegas

Ok, well, I fail at blogging. Also, photography. I have had numerous opportunities to go out and shoot, but I haven’t done it. I’m going to TRY to do better – in the meantime, we took a family trip down to the Newport Aquarium, and then I took a girls trip to Las Vegas. I intended to take a ton of photos, but ended up too busy laughing and going out to really do much of any photography.  Anyway. Here are a few I like, here are the rest of the Vegas pictures, and here are the rest of the Newport pictures.
