All smiles

When Brian travels I hang out with my parents a little more than usual.  Last week he was in Brazil so I met my parents twice for dinner. They are fun.  We always have lots to talk and laugh about.  I love this picture with my Dad.  Who would guess this guy is 73?  I feel so fortunate that my parents take such good care of themselves, still enjoy each other after 39 years of marriage and have a lot of fun everyday.  I love you Mom and Dad!  I can't wait to make you Grandparents - what a lucky baby!

Brian got home on Saturday and went up the street from our house for a little happy hour.  Sam came down with the kids and was able to use the lens I was renting to capture their sweet faces.  I love this family so much. 

Poor guy was tired and had a cold, but I was so happy to have him home.

As usual, Viola came in jewels. 

How can you resist that sweet face looking up at you?

Having some fun with Uncle Brian. 

Hugo with Dad.

A rare moment when this little girl on the move would just hang on my lap. The bribery by lollipop might have helped.


  1. The only good thing about Brian being out of town is seein more of you. The bad thing is worrying about Brian!

  2. Such a sweet post - and not just because it heavily features my favorite kiddos - the sentiment you share about your pop, so endearing, and your folks are going to be such great grandparents. Baby Lanter is one blessed wee-to-be!
