Weekend Bliss!

Last weekend we enjoyed the company of family.  🙂 David is my nephew and he has given us such great additions with a beautiful wife and darling son.  Sarah is our family photographer and we asked her to do JP’s senior pictures.  

senior-picturesI was trying to get a shot of all 4 of them but my camera is slow.  I think I’m supposed to be helping at this point.

With 3″ of snow forecast for Sunday (along with rain & sleet), Sarah got to work soon after they arrived.  

David & I were the easily distracted helpers.   climbing-up big-boy


After supper on Saturday night, the men headed outside to try out JP’s airsoft guns and his shooting range/hiding spots.  JP loves having David visit!  They share computer talk and guy time.   guy-time

He is such fun!
