Where there were awesome things like a rope swing and this old iron chair. Is this a great photo prop or what?!
On this particular day, there was a strong wind advisory, so guess what we had to do to the hair... again! The last TWO times we've had professional portraits done, we've worn pigtails!
And this girly had scabs all over her face and a ratty ponytail to boot. But, either way, she is so cute-i-ful (as my Poppa used to say!).
Almost fools you into thinking she is an innocent little thing, doesn't she?!
I absolutely fell in LOVE with these aprons! I mean, I think they were FAB-U-LOUS in those bright colors on this bright and happy spring day!
Maddi and Ellie were quite photo accomodating on this day, which is always such a nice surprise.
I mean, really? I love this one!
and this one!
And right about now, Gabbi Girl is refusing to get off the swing! And sooooooo, we just went with it. I think I need to have one of these blown up for both Ellie and Maddi's room. (staci, not gonna do it... Madi, that is)
And it really livened up when I said, "now make funny faces".
Ellie was all about this activity. But, she seemed to be a one trick pony!
but, now THIS is what the girls really, really, really wanted to do!
Pops even tried the old "spider" trick with one on top of the other. I was surprised they made it even one pass without throwing a little fit. Gabbi was a little nervous, so they didn't get more than one pass anyway!
I just love this.
I can't imagine these two not being sisters. They were meant to be... as was our "special family".
And throw in a same age cousin, who lives next door, and wow... what a lucky thing!
My Gabbi Girl, I believe, will be my little daredevil when it comes to rides at the fair, carnivals, amusement parks, etc.
