It came yesterday.
I spent most of the early evening at Kelley Park for Dude's baseball game and a senior picture shoot. I am not sure what reminds me of summer more than kids finishing school!
We were interrupted during the shoot :) Oh, children riding their bikes to the park - so summer.
Riley, my awesome (and I really do mean awesome) friend, hung out with me at the park. He brought his brand new 20D and telephoto and we took pictures of Lauren and flowers :)
This picture totally sums up Lauren: dirty fingers from making more mud cupcakes, dirty nails from playing in the dirt, yet they are partly painted pink and she is in a blue dress picking flowers :D
Then we went to go watch Dude play. Watching The Littles play sports never gets old. Actually, I think its cuter every time.
I am sure most kids would be so embarrased if their big sister came to their games, with a huuuge camera, and waved to them, and said "AaaaWaaawW" every time they went up to bat. Not Dude, though. He made this cute little face when I walked up:
I loved watching this kid. He was the stereotypical child placed in right field.
It's hard to focus for long time, I totally understand
Even though he looks kind of awkward, this was actually a really nice hit.
His run to first was even better - he pumped his arms, got his little knees up and left the catcher in a cloud of dust. Look at his precious "game face."
So, I know that there is nothing terribly special about this picture, except that it is straight out of camera. The light was SO pretty last night! I wish that I could have done an engagement shoot!
After the game, the Littles and I met up with some friends to surprise Katie for her 20th birthday!!! I love you Katie!
And they were pretty much worn-out after their first summer day :)
