My god daughter is on the move now and much harder to take pictures of so I haven't taken very many this year. I was able to snap a quick picture of her at a BBQ we were having and I love it

Here's another one....she was trying to show me where my "eye" is

Having fun at the Nine and Dine. The theme was "chef challenge". Three chefs from three different golf clubs competed to see who was the best cook. They all got a box with the same ingredients that they had to use. Everything was delicious! Here we are at hole #6 where the chefs served us an appetizer. We had the main course and dessert after we were done golfing

trying out Geocaching. We tried looking for a couple different ones the day before but struck out. The kids were so excited to finally find one. This one was hidden in that tree stump behind the kids...i think they have weird looks on their faces because they can't figure out how to open the container

My daughter's soccer tournament was today so my husband painted his face for it (he's the coach and their team is England). He scared me when he came out of the bathroom...i had no clue he was going to do this. He scared me again by asking me to take his picture....that never happens!!

we were at an outdoor shakespeare play at the park and just when it ended i noticed a beautiful sunset. I had the kids quickly run up a nearby hill and jump. The sun was fading fast so this is the best shot i could get

my husband had a lump removed from deep inside his nose. I was expecting to see his face all swollen with black eyes when i picked him up at the hospital but he looked perfectly normal just a little drugged up. We just got the results back recently and the lump in benign...woohoo!

I was trying to get a nice family picture and everyone thought it would be funny to tell me that the light wasn't flashing...this is me running to try and figure out what was wrong with the camera!  They insisted that i use this one for my picture of the day :)

Here's a better one!
