It’s not often a mother of three grown children and grandmother of three gets all of her people in one place at one time. So when you do you better commemorate the event with family portraits! This family has lots to celebrate – an upcoming wedding, a recent graduation, and of course just being together.
New Town has lost a great family. My friends here wanted some family pictures taken to remember their time in New Town before leaving St. Charles (temporarily, I hope). I was honored to document their last days in these parts. We were headed to get some nice midwestern corn pics but were lucky enough to come upon these sunflower fields when they were looking their best. They made for a much cooler shot with New Town in the background. And, of course, we had to get a quintessential shot of the New Town obelisk. These are going to look great hanging on those California walls!
I know I’ve been pretty silent this summer, but I’ve just been going, going, going. And now I feel like summer is almost over. My kids were supposed to be in day camp this summer, but that didn’t work out so they are staying home with me. When I have to entertain kids, blogging seems to fall off the bottom of the to-do list. I am currently writing to the sound of doors slamming and large crashes on the floor upstairs. I don’t even want to know what is going on up there. This mama has some catching up to do!
How was your Mother’s Day? I hope your kids/husbands spoiled you on your day. We had lunch with my family – yummy carnitas. Then we made last minute plans to go to the Cards game. It was Nora’s first time and Nathaniel’s second. They sat through the whole game thanks to the gigantic bag of cotton candy – yes, even dentists’ children (and their wives) eat cotton candy from time to time. Then we walked down by the Arch, looked at the over-flowing river, and had dinner on the Landing. It was a nice St. Louis-style Mother’s Day.
