Red, White, and a bit black and blue...

Imagine my husbands joy when I asked if we could take the kids over to this site for some photos... NOT!! He reluctantly agreed. Initially, I had planned on just the boys, but the girls were insistent upon wearing their overalls since the boys were getting to. I left the girls with their bedtime braids and no one got their teeth brushed. Literally, I was trying to get us out the door before the sun was bright over head... I failed a bit on that one. Then I brought out paint buckets, brushes, and a step stool. Jerry, "What are these for?"... Me, "They are my props." Yes, I got an eye roll. I soooo wanted this to go well so he'd help me again and it was going ok... until the ant bite.... ugh...

Hopefully, some of these shots will be inspiration enough for him to allow me drag the kids to other locations....

Yeah, BAD SUN on this one.... I tried to salvage it...
Kaylee and the dreaded ant bite


  1. oh I love these! So clever and sweet! :)

  2. What a great idea- I love the props & your hubs is very understanding. I doubt I would ever get mine to go to a location just for photos but to add props too- Oh he would pitch a fit for sure. :) Ouch on the ant bite- hope she's doing okay now.

  3. Still...I love these shots. You're a genius for setting it up!

  4. I do love them. It really was an awesome idea.

  5. WOW! I absolutely love these! What awesome pictures you have. :)

  6. fabulous!! I know.. you just can't waste that golden hour at the beginning of the day and at the end.. lol.. my husband laughs now and understands.. :) Great shots!!
