Honoring Those Who Served America

On Saturday October 15, 2016 my daughter’s American Heritage Girl Troop and our brother Trail Life Troop had the privilege of thanking veterans who were visiting the National Museum of the Marine Corps as part of an Honor Flight. To say that it was a moving experience doesn’t do justice to the memorable morning we had. I am sure that the young men and women will not soon forget the morning spent honoring those who served. Also, a special thank you to museum volunteer Trish, who made sure we were in the right place and gathered a few Quantico Marines for the big send off. She was absolutely wonderful!

Birthday Fun

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.  Richard Bach

ARRRRGH!

Our annual pool party was dedicated to the members of the family with big birthdays this year, 30, 40, and 60! So we threw a Pirate Bash!

 

A Visit to Richmond

A few weeks ago my husband and I had the privilege of being childless on a Saturday. Their grandparents had them overnight. What a lovely twenty-four hours. We had been invited down to friends for a cookout and had a few hours beforehand so we went to the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. This is one of my favorite places. They have a wonderful permanent collection and they get some great exhibits. Here are a few photographs from our day out.

 

Then we went to dinner!

 

An Afternoon with the Wilson Children

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking some lovely photographs of the Wilson family children. Children are the best subjects to photograph. They haven’t learned to be self-conscious and their expressions are always so honest. I plan on taking many more photographs of this wonderful family, to help document their growth. Thank you Wilsons for allowing me into your home for the afternoon.
