I’m sick…

…but I love playing cards so much that I don’t want to go lay down and rest.

Puppy Play

Well, they aren’t puppies anymore, but to me, they’ll always be “the pups.” The best time to catch these two playing is in the early morning when they first wake up from a long night’s rest. Plus, it gets hot in Tucson, AZ very quickly! Watching these two (sometimes my oldest will even play along) with a cup of coffee makes me giggle every time.

Happy Easter! He is Risen!

Easter is the only time of the year that I can convince my kiddos to put on something nice for a picture. Fifteen minutes into the shoot I had to bribe them with four scoops of ice cream and any toppings they wanted if they’d just hang on for another fifteen minutes with me. LOL!

50mm Prime

Yesterday I enjoyed a two-hour window of time, just me and my girl. We built a sand castle, went for a bike ride, and walked hand-in-hand. I don’t usually take pictures of people with my 50mm prime, I wasn’t about to take along a huge, portrait lens during this precious time. I just love the many facial expressions of this girl!

San Xavier Mission

dsc_2326cThe kids an I went on a short trip just down the road to San Xavier, a mission church built in 1797. We took a tour (by donation only) with a docent who told us all about the church, from the founding saints to the methods of construction.
According to their website, San Xavier is a National Historic dsc_2348cLandmark, founded as a Catholic mission by Father Eusebio Kino in 1692. It is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona, the church’s interior is filled with marvelous original statuary and mural paintings. It is a place where visitors can truly step back in time and enter an authentic 18th Century space. The church retains its original purpose of ministering to the religious needs of its parishioners.
