Our Happy Little Guys

Riles & Breck are 18 months old today and on the move.  They often run in opposite directions, which is a reflection of their personalities, but one thing they do have in common is they are happy guys.  Luckily for us, that makes life a little easier around here.

Riles has been walking for a few months and will quietly wander off and explore and does not answer when you call his name...he makes you come find him and he is usually holding something and trying to figure out how it works or how he can put it back together.  His new thing is open-mouthed, slobbery kisses and hitting his brothers with his huge, strong, man-sized hands.  He is not as vocal as Breck, but he lets you know when he likes what he sees or if he is not a fan.

Breck just started walking in the past two weeks but that never stopped him from getting where he wanted to go.  Although mostly he wants to stay perched on my hip and steer me all over the place to take him where he wants to go.  He has a good set of lungs on him and will damage your eardrum with the most annoying sound in the world or will repeat everything you say like a little parrot.  He may still be a little smaller than Riles, but he definitely holds his own in this house.

Can you give me a push?

Kyler, get off of here!

Like butter.

We all almost melted, but Lauren & Adam's wedding from last Labor Day weekend was worth it.

Aren't you glad I've been sharing all these weddings spread throughout the off season rather than jamming them all in a small amount of time??

I am super traditional, but when the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony it takes so much stress off of a couple and lets them enjoy the rest of the day since at that time we get most of the formal photos done (before the ceremony).  You still get that special moment of seeing each other for the first time, but it is private and intimate.  Just sayin'.

These flowers made me swoon.

I love grandmas...

...and don't even get me started on these two.  Melt my heart.

Faye was on kid patrol with these two and her images are priceless.  I dare say these two stole the show.

Little sissy wasn't too thrilled, but she still cooperated...although we did not get a smile from her all day.

But these girls made up for it.  I love moments like these.

Go Hawkeyes!

She gone.



This lighting was like butter.

Another fabulous wedding at Hotel Baker.  Who's ready for some warm summer nights?
