it's been a while since i've shared some family photos, hasn't it? we had a little get-together, with my family, about two weeks ago. we managed to squeeze a lot of celebrations into one night.
we had my mom's birthday, my birthday, and sarah's birthday. all within an eleven day period. we also added in my dad's birthday, which was in the middle of may. and we w0rked in father's day for my dad and joe, since it was a few days away. btw. aren't my girls just the most adorable things ;)
joe and sarah.
me and alyssa.
how cute does her hair look? she just had about seven inches cut off, for a fresh summer look.
alyssa could not even be paying any attention to me. but as soon as she catches sight of my camera, she automatically goes into "smile" mode. lol!
i think sarah was trying to get into "smile" mode, but didn't quite make it in time. and alyssa then went into her "peace sign" mode.
this is how sarah looks the majority of the time. ipod touch in hand, and seriously focused on either free texting, free apps and games, and occasionally, some music ;)
we always write our names on our cups, so that we can keep track of them. sarah usually writes not only her name, but lots of other random things.
like i said. random stuff. lol! we don't even question what she does anymore ;)
me and sarah. two of the birthday girls.
i'm blurry, but joe looks fine. i'm thinking i havn't taught alyssa my focusing tricks yet. will work on that with her.
i failed to get too many photos of everyone else in the family. well, i DID get some shots. but they were when we were eating, and they weren't very flattering pics. lol! luckily, sarah was on picture duty too. she had gone around and took self portraits, with each of us.
sarah and grammie (aka, my mom).
sarah and papa (aka, my dad).
sarah and uncle scott (aka, my brother).
sarah and aunt kathy (aka, my sister-in-law).
we ate good food. we caught up with each other. we sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather that finally found it's way to california. the girls thought about going swimming in uncle scott and aunt kathy's pool. but they had already gone in grammy and papa's pool earlier that day, so they decided against it. we had cake and ice cream, and opened gifts and cards. a great night with family.
