I’m wishing I was sipping tea with the Queen Mother and new Duchess Kate, but in reality, I’m wearing sweatpants, watching roof debris fly past my sliding door (don’t worry- its sunny, but there is construction), and trying to convince Adam that its perfectly normal to answer his questions with “Cherrio!” and “Pip, pip!”
I wasn’t one of the millions tuning in to the Royal Wedding this morning at 4AM (my pillow and I have an extreme love-affair), but I am a sucker for anything British. I guess that’s what happens when your grandma was a war-bride from Nottingham and had you drinking tea since you were 5. And it probably helps that I’m getting married soon and am completely enamored with the pomp and splendor of weddings!… yeaaaah, that might have something to do with it. 🙂
Now for switching gears from the courts of Westminster to the farm fields of Bronson…meet Haley, Emmett, and Skyler.
Haley was my roommate for two years in college (and also one of my bridesmaids for August; squee!), and she and her cousins joined together for an afternoon to get some family pictures taken for their sweet Granny’s Mother’s Day present. And since it’s only been, oh, a decade, since they had pictures taken, it was due time.
The rain was determined to squall any chance we had for pictures, but we were more determined to get these pictures taken. I mean, if we can get Emmett to smile, we can take rockin’ pictures in the rain. 🙂
Between balancing a big, green umbrella, my Canon, and my pride (yes, I did sing “Whatever You Like” to make Emmett smile), the day turned out to be a great success. They are a beautiful (fun!) family!
Granny will be pleased.
