{my first meeting of Hattie}

Heather and Ryan got in late the night we got to Sun Valley.  Dang it!  (They were partyling in Vegas, by the way.)
I got up early the next morning and walked over to their condo and forced my way in to meet this beautiful little girl.
here are the pics of her looking at me asking, "who the CRAP are you? And why, oh why, did you wake me up, lady?"


i just needed 5 minutes, and that's all it took to get cute little Hattie in my parents' little buggy.  Isn't she just the cutest?  And yes, she was totally safe, I promise!!!

I had not seen Ruby since she was 1 week old and now she is just shy of 2 years old.  I can't put into words how sweet this little girl is!!  It makes me so sad that I don't get to enjoy my sisters' kids more than just once or twice a year.
Ruby girl,  I love you more than words can say and I can't wait to hug you and squeeze in a few more months!

because my brother, Tom, loves my camera and his sisters so much :), he took some pics of us. Yay, we love sister pics!!

{lots of other fun stuff in Sun Valley}

Clearly, I am the family photographer on vacations :)
I began noticing no one else had their cameras, and I'm guessing that everyone thought I would just document the trip...ha ha.

Here is my cousin Layne, with his fiance Rachel--so cute!
