Pieces of Me

First off I have to say a huge congrats to my sister and brother-in-law for their healthy, happy baby boy.  I'll let them get settled into their new roles as parents before I ambush them for a photo shoot :)

So I asked the boys what they wanted to do today and they said go on an adventure.  We have recently rearranged their bedrooms and playroom and we now need to decorate them.  I asked them if they wanted to go take pictures so we can hang them up on the walls. They were so excited about it and said they wanted to see the train and airplanes. So off we went and I only took 408 pictures.  I thought about breaking up the pictures in separate posts, but instead I'll share a few from each place we went today.

But first I have to start off saying I finished my Ashby Shawl!!!
It is 100% alpaca and it took me forever, but I love it.

First we headed to Allaire State Park.

Of course we needed pictures of the trains for their playroom.

There is something so magical about a train ride.  I love sitting back and just watching the amazement in their eyes.

Then we took a hike, which ended at the playground.

Has anyone seen my baby? When did he turn into such a big boy :(

There were three weddings going on in the park. It was such a beautiful day for a wedding. The lucky couples got such a wonderful day to be married. I have no idea who these people are, but I am so happy for them and I love the yellow shoes.

After the park we headed to the airport. Where the boys enjoyed watching the airplanes and eating their lollipops.

After the airport we headed to the farm.

Blue kept a close eye on us while the boys played in the shed.

We had diner at the Circus Drive-In and then went to the river to watch the sunset.

The boys tossed rocks into the water and laughed hysterically the entire time.

Look there's a fire in the sky.

The rest of the day went as normal. Baths, books and bedtime.

Have I mentioned how much I love the weather in September?  Well I do. I wish the boys were in school in August so we could have so much fun in the wonderful weather in September.

Well it was a very good day and I think we got a few shots that will make it to the wall.

Wow, the sunset is fantastic! The deep red in the last photo is beautiful. The boys had a great time! I like the shot of one of them peeking out of the train!
