Catching up with some cousins

A few of my cousins came into town so a number of us met up and went for lunch.  It was so great to see them again, we don't get to see them very often.  

My twin cousins, their older sister and myself.

The impromptu lunch brought out a few more cousins, my aunt and my mom.

This is a photo of all of the cousins that made it to the lunch today.  A mini reunion - although my dad being the youngest of 12 and many of his siblings had large families so I have a lot more cousins out there, some I am not sure I have ever met.

Garden Hydrangeas... and a kitty

Trying to take photos has proven to be a little more difficult with a curious kitten in the house.  I wanted a photo of my garden hydrangeas.  They are special to me because they are a clipping from one of my grandmas plants many years ago.  I finally got a photo I am happy with but it did take awhile...

I had a little help

'New Chair'

I had this old wooden chair from a garage sale years ago (I think I paid $2) for it.  I first painted it dark brown and it has been like that for several years.  Today I added the blue and distressed it a bit - LOVE it now.  I have it now sitting by my front door rather than in storage and only to pull out when we need extra chairs.

Just Danica

I am not very good with Photoshop so I am working hard at taking better photos so that I don't have to use my Photoshop.  Luckily, Danica is a willing participant most of the time.  I am happy with how this turned out.  These are straight out of the camera no edits.

My favorite photos at events are just the candid ones when moments are like this one are captured.
