Good Friends

We were blessed to host some really good friends this last weekend.  With (nearly) everyone there there were 13 kids there...and 3 on the way.  Here are a few of the pictures I snapped.

First up, I enjoyed a weekend with the girls last week.

And then the brunch party in our backyard!

After some eating and some playing we got ALL of the kids together for a picture.

And, although there were some tears, we got one with everyone!
From left to right: Grant, Eli, Mathias, Gianna, Ava, Bernadette, Micah, Lilly, Franky, Lucy, Gus, Dominic and Abby,

And then, Bill ran around and took of picture of all the parents trying to get all of those kids to smile:

The big thrill of the party of Tom and JoAnn, home from Rome with Mathias and Gianna!


Another wonderful addition to the party was little Abby--Tom and Kelly's little girl who lives in Dickenson, ND.  She was all dressed up for a wedding so I just had to snap a few pictures.

It was a beautiful morning and a fun reminder of how blessed we are to have these friends in our lives!

Portraits of the Kids

Just sharing a few pictures of the kids.  No real stories here.  I just pulled out my portrait lenses again and have been having some fun taking portraits of each of the kids.  Enjoy!
