Did you take those pictures?

They're really well done.

I especially like the ones where she is in color and the rest of the picture is in black and white.

Looks like you guys had a good time.

You really did pack a lot of life into that day - talk about busy!

How fun that Emma Sage had another photo shoot...can't wait to see the layout of this one!

Congrats to Otto's team on winning! how very exciting that must be for the town!

Loved your photos. I gotta find out what software you use too.

Also, just wondering if that babysitting offer from your daughters would work in Atlanta? It looks like I can attend and would love to bring Jennifer with me. Let me know if that may work or not. I did drop you an e-mail too, but don't know if you pick them up these days.

Keep these beautiful pictures coming...

Wow, that was a super busy day. Neat to see pics from the photo shoot. That's really cool that she's invovled in that. I bet it always makes her feel so proud!

Also, good job to Otto w/ baseball.
