Photo Fun with Susan!

This past Saturday we went to Joshua Tree National Park to have our pictures taken by Susan at Short on Words!  She was such a nice, patient, and talented person.  I have been so happy since we found out we won her Inspire Me giveaway.  The deal was we were to go to Orange County but when she found out that we lived in 29 Palms she wanted to come here and take the photos in Joshua Tree, which Im glad because that place is so awesome and the boys really like it there. 
We had a lot of fun taking the photos, we got to just be ourselves and have fun.  With 3 boys, its hard to make them sit and just smile for picture after picture for an hour or so.  She let the boys run around, climb rocks, ride bikes, battle with light sabers, and even play catch with Dad!  The day was perfect, sunny weather, low winds, and hardly a cloud in the sky.  

To most people this may not seem like a big deal, which is what I told Susan, but to us it means so much more.  She is capturing a time in our lives that we will get to cherish for years and not to mention that we will be able to show our families these great photos back in Oklahoma.  Being in the military, we hardly ever get to see our families and the one thing they love more then anything is getting new pics of the boys, this time it will be photos of ALL of US!!!  

We truly cannot Thank You enough for giving us this great opportunity Susan!!! 

She posted a sneek peek on here!
