What a fun couple of days we had!
The kids and I went up to the charming little town of GC to visit my bestie, Alisa, so she could take some amazing photos before her quickly approaching retirement from doing professional photo sessions. I also went so I could paint some murals for her sister, Marissa, who are both my husband's cousins but feel more like extra sisters. I've got some awesome family on all sides!

Anyways, Alisa captured some beautiful, hilarious, and perfect moments.

Some of my favorites, but there are so many that I just love! This is just a small handful of them...she took a ton of pictures and I love every single one of them!

This one will be so perfect in her room, don't ya think?

This boy did really well considering he's a 3 year old and having him sit still for a photo and smile is pretty painful.

The next 2 just make me laugh. RJ and I nearly busted a gut.
Seriously, her face?
Please (fingers crossed) let this be "just a phase"!

Oh, Henry. You crack me up.

Probably my all time favorite of me and my babies:

And how about this wall? It's a really old building in GC and I'm completely in love with it.

We also had a lot of fun playing all the little cousins. On the farm we had the excitement of seeing a crazy, low flying, crop duster. The kids loved it! Alisa went outside and caught the kids looking from the window. Too cute!

Ok. Back to that wall.
I just can't get enough.
I just can't get enough!

I did 4 little murals in Marissa's house and here's the one in the nursery for little Charlton, who will be arriving in September. They're going to call him Charlie.

And that's all!
Thank you so much for capturing all those moments so beautifully, Alisa. We love ALL of them and will treasure them for a very long time.
In fact, I think I'll look through them again!

Hope your'e all having a marvelous weekend!

Those pictures simply take my breath away. BEAUTIFUL! I am so depressed that she is retiring. Your kids are gorgeous! And so expressive. Wowzers.

Thanks for the sweet words! It was fun times. You are so-totally-100% an honorary Hayes girl. Also noteworthy: you have some mad painting skills.
