PS Living room photos are coming...but you will have to wait a little longer. When they came to install our curtain rods and curtains, we found out that the curtains were a tiny bit too long, so they are being hemmed. I really want you to see the whole effect of the room, including curtains, so you will just have to wait.

Nicole recently asked me to take family photos of her family. It took us several tries to get a date coordinated, but we finally were able to get together last Friday. The weather was perfect and it was fun taking photos of someone who just automatically did the posing. Her boys, Lane and Cole, are too cute and were easily bribed with Smarties. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling the best and it really showed in my photos. I was hoping to be able to give her tons of awesome photos, but a lot of them just weren't good. Luckily, there are several I was really happy with...and I think she liked them too. She is going to take our family photos in October, and I can't wait to see what she does!
Photos by me.....photo editting by Nicole (she did an AWESOME job of making my photos look amazing!)
1. Crockpot 365 - This blog has a new crockpot recipe a day for a year. I love my crockpot, especially once school starts. There is nothing like coming home and having your house smell yummy and knowing supper is done! I plan to spend some time on this blog today and print off some new recipes to share.
2. This commercial I saw on TV. It just made me laugh....maybe because Jenna is constantly cheering and I could see her talking her dad into helping her out.
Have a good weekend. Brenda and Jill - hope you don't get too wet from Ike. We finally have some rain here. I'm excited about a rainy Saturday. I plan to get things done around the house this morning and spend the rest of the day scrapping or reading.
Be sure to check back this week for photos from a recent family shoot I did and photos of our newly redecorated living room!

Loved this pile of rocks that cascaded down the hill. The Gorge was actually formed by a glacier long ago and there are really neat rock formations throughout the whole park.

Water falling over layers and layers of rock....
We FINALLY made it to the bottom of the trail where the dam and the river were....

The Scary Bridge.....
On Sunday we decided to go hike through Gorge Park in Cuyahoga Falls (pictures and story to come soon). To get to Gorge Park you have to drive right past the scary bridge and as we started talking about it, Jacob wanted to stop. (I had to stop calling it the scary bridge though because Jenna was getting a little worried). As we approached the entrance to the bridge, I saw this sign .....proof that it really is, and forever will be, the scary bridge.
You'll be happy to know that I've gotten a little braver over the past 30 years (although I still won't ride the giant ferris wheel at Cedar Point), and I walked right out onto the bridge and started taking photos. I even stopped to look down through the cracks between the boards with Jacob and stand at the edge and look over to take photos.
