Summer Recap: Part 2

While I'm in the mood I just have to get this blog up to date with some memories I cherish!

Baby Jack's 1st Birthday Celebration

I adore my little brother Rich, always have, uh...that is, after I got used to the idea of being a middle child.

He's 9 years younger than me, and I've gotta give props to Mom because this kind of age difference really is a perfect balance to not fight much as kids and but still close enough in age to foster a strong relationship as adults like we so easily do.

He's handsome, caring, wise, gregarious, give-you-the-shirt-off-his-back-in-an-instant-kind-of-guy. And he married beautiful, brainy, talented, ultra-funny Rachel. And now they have a son, Jack...who is perking up to have those same wonderful qualities of both of them.

I'm so proud to call this family my own. And lucky us to have this little guy in our lives. I'm going to enjoy cheering him on in life just as much as I still love to do for my brother.

Our family gathered together in late June to celebrate his first birthday, and as the official family photographer, I'm always there to capture the action. I'm going to apologize in advance for the amount of photos...but I wish you knew just how dang hard it is to pick and choose the piddly amount of photos that make the blog cut. I decided, ah..what the just throw a lot up on here to make up for all the lost time until I get into a regular rhythm of adding posts. we roll...

  Did I mention how much I love my whole family? Can you tell? Cause I do. I do. I do. I do.


  1. Wonderful photos, and baby Jack is adorable! I hope they all live close so you can easily capture him growing up. :-)

  2. Ahhhh!!! LOVED the pictures. Baby Jack is adorable, can't believe he's already 1. And of course your girls, oh my my! Loved the cake too!

  3. Never get tired of looking at these pics! You really know how to make people look good ;) And Rich said that he probably wouldn't give someone the shirt he was wearing b/c he doesn't like to be shirtless in public. Haha! Love you

  4. We love you right back! So glad we have all these wonderful memories to look back on...thanks for recording them!
