Last weekend I headed over the border to Wisconsin to meet up with this family.  They had a great huge yard out in the country.  Ben is really into baseball and so happy to pose with his gear, Riley was mostly bribed with jelly beans!  We had a great time wandering around the yard, especially when they got out the tractor and the gator!  The kids LOVED driving them around!  Here are some of my favorites! 

I met up with this sweet girl on a Sunday morning at Lake Harriet.  Wow, it was busy there!  So we wandered around to scout a good place for pics.  At first, Kinsley was so shy and with all the activity around, I decided to teach her a song my girls love to grab her attention.  And then we all sang it about 1000 more times after that!:)She loved it!  I have since emailed Mom and Dad the lyrics!  Hope they like the song too, as I have no doubt they are on repeat at home!  We just had such a fun time together – thanks for spending your morning with me! 

Last weekend we had scheduled a session for what was supposed to be a nice sunny morning, but turned out the be a very rainy morning.  We decided to postpone, but as the day went on the weather kept getting better and we quickly gathered everyone up in the afternoon!  Nice when your sister-in-law is also your photographer :)! Aren’t my niece and nephew CUTE?!?!  I particularly love Kaili’s red glasses and the outfit she chose herself!  That same night we had them over to swim and got to include some fun shots jumping off the dock at sunset!  Enjoy!

I’m taking the ISO – In Search Of challenge again!  The last one was a success – I won for the the summertime shot!  Yay!  :)  It’s actually been really fun doing them each week, even though I haven’t entered all the challenges, it’s really great to try new things!  So this week is Flare, and I just had to grab the camera when the sun was shining just right through the clouds down on the lake. SO GORGEOUS!  I feel so lucky that I get to look at this view almost every night!

I was lucky enough to spend last Saturday morning with the “White Bear Lake Water Ski Team“.  A really fun group of guys that have skied together for many many years.  They are out there nearly every day, from ice out to the first snow!  It was fun to see where Doug disappears to every Saturday and Sunday morning.  We got out there at 7 and the sky and water were just beautiful.  An early morning on the lake is so peaceful!

The “bench”…

After the first successful pass, the mandatory flex! 

Getting the buoy’s…

Thanks for the fun!  Next year, maybe I’ll take a run!
