Family Fun Day

I’ve been busy editing portrait sessions, so I just now got around to editing personal photos from last weekend. I had Friday off work for Independence Day, so we had a busy day with family and friends. We started the morning off at Deanna Rose Farmstead. To my surprise, Lil’ Miss K had no fear feeding the ducks or goats. She let those goat gobble pellets right out of her hand! She even speaks their language – she kept yelling “baa!” at them.

After that we drove to my in-laws’ a few hours away, where we visited my husband’s grandma in the nursing home and went to a fun park in Independence, Kansas. Lil’ Miss K had a blast riding the carousel and train, which cost a whopping nickel and a quarter each. Nothing like good ol’ fashioned family fun!

(I was having so much fun being Mommy that I really slacked in the photographer department. I kept handing my camera to my husband all day – so thanks to him and my brother-in-law Matt for these photos.)

Photo of the Day: Whatchu Lookin At?

Have you ever looked at the facial expressions of an alpaca? They crack me up every time. It seems like I’ve encountered them on every recent vacation I’ve taken, and I never get tired of them. They were used in the Great Smoky Mountains to carry luggage to a hike-in resort, we stayed on an alpaca ranch in Montana when we went visited Glacier National Park, and they were part of Tanganyika‘s petting zoo last weekend.

(Although I’m posting several days worth of photos from Tanganyika, I am in no way getting paid – the opinions are strictly my own.)
