Saturday...was a banner day for me!!
It started with a photo session with the Gibson family. Sarah (Oblender) Gibson and I went to highschool together. Her sweet mother ("Mrs. O") was my highschool Spanish teacher. We've known each other for years. However I had never had the pleasure of meeting her husband, Chuck, and their four ADORABLE children. (When you see their photos, you'll understand the need for capital letters!)
But Saturday changed all that. The forecast was not good and the view of the sky while I drank my morning coffee was... well...scary! But God is so good to us and as I drove to the shoot, the clouds parted, the sun peeked out, and sprinkled light all over our chosen location. I met the Gibsons in the morning and we spent a delightful hour frolicking around Judy Goodhart's wondrous yard...(thank you Judy!!) It is truly a wonderland for children and adults alike, and the images we captured there were so much fun.
I was overflowing. For a photographer, a shoot like that, the weather clearing...it just doesn't get much better.
Little did I know how much better it would get! :) For those of you who know me, you know my birthday is in a week or so. AND if you know my husband, you know that if he gets me a gift...he is TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY unable to keep it until the day! He gets it in his hot little hands and he is compelled to give it! (I happen to love that quality in him!) Well this year, he planned ahead and I'll save you the suspense... He sent me and my two best girlfriends to see TIM HAWKINS Rock Show Comedy Tour!! I mean... BEST. NIGHT. EVER!! If you are not familiar with the comdey stylings of Tim Hawkins, I have taken the liberty of including 2 awesome clips in this post. You can thank me later.
First though... some images from the darling Gibson family!
And now for some "Tim!"
