Jordans 2 1/2 year photo chase shoot

I gave up trying to shoot Jordan in the studio, So I decided just to follow him around the park down the street, and my backyard. I was able to really photograph his true personality that way, and I can remember all the cute natural looks he gets. Notice the end of the shoot, he was sick of me following him around so he tried to hide in the dyer, and said "all done" He better start getting use to it.

1st Bike

No!! He cant be old enough to ride a bike yet. Actually he cant ride it yet because he little legs cant reach the pedals, so he just walks around on it. Joel bought him his first Bike at REI and it is so little, maybe in a few years he will be able to sit on it.


Lisa family came up for the week this week, and we had so much fun. Joel got off work early a few days so he took Jordan and I went with them to Seven Peaks Water park, and to Lagoon the next day. It was great to be able to ride the rides with older kids that don't have to sit on your lap. I haven't be able to spend as much time with Lisa's kids as I would like, and we all had so much fun together, I was impressed my how daring they all were, even Spencer, the youngest, went on all the rides and kept right up. One of the best things about being away from home is that you get to spend everyones vacations with them. Its such a great way to get to know your family at a whole different level, and see them interact with each other. They are a great family, I am lucky that they let me hang out with them.
PS. Word of advice, don't put your cell phone in your pocket at Lagoon, Or at least don't go down the hydro tube in a raft and think you wont get your pocket wet. (thanks Jess)

Family Camp Out

My Family went camping at Mt. Charleston this weekend. I had a great time the first few hours till it starting raining and soaked our tent. Jordan didn't nap so after the first few hours he became demon child. I wimped out and went home at bedtime to sleep. He rest of the family had a wonderful time, but as far as Jordan's first camp out, not so much. We will try again next summer.

Our Little Lake

When Amy and her Kids came up, and Emily stayed the week, we had a blast. Of course I forgot me camera almost every time we went somewhere, but we did bring it on our little picnic at the lake. I didn't think the kids would get in the cold water, so we didn't bring a change of clothes, but it didn't stop them, they had a great time splashing each other and playing in the muddy ground.

After they played in the water I tried to change Jordans Diaper since he was all wet, he took off running as soon as my head was turned. I swear that Boy is to fast. He is my little free spirit

I can't help it, I love this picture, he has the the cutest butt (sorry mom) in the world.
