Family Visit

This is my sister Tracy!
She's my only sibling who doesn't live up in Canada. Tracy and her family live in Arizona.
But this week they came to visit me and Tom!

Don't we look like twins? (Although Tracy is 13 years older than me.)

Having Tracy and her family stay with us was GREAT! Tracy cooked for us the WHOLE TIME! And she's a good cook!

During their visit I got to practice the lessons I learned in my first photography class!
I took all these pictures on manual, and figured out all my exposure settings.

One of the first places we went to was a park by my house.

This is Christian. Not even a teenager yet and not afraid to kiss a girl!

This is Chloe. She loves to practice braiding, even on flowers.

Ian, Chloe, Christian, Ginger and our dog Yoda.
The kids LOVED Yoda.

Christian and Yoda.

Then we went to the free animal museum at BYU.
Did you know they have a real two-headed snake?

After the museum we went to a Provo staple. The BYU creamery!

This is one of my FAV pictures. Have I mentioned I took these pictures on manual?

Sunday was another exciting day.
This is how Christian went to church. LOL! His favorite color is pink and he's NOT afraid to admit it! Who knew we had so much in common?

After church we had a photo shoot at the Provo temple.
You can see a few of kids in this picture are a little wet. That's because they were playing in the fountains. That's when we decided to move on to the back of the temple.
But the reverence didn't last long.
The kids started rolling down the hill and doing handstands.
Isn't Chloe's form impressive?

It was a hot day, so the kids went a little crazy at the water fountain.
Ian looks HILARIOUS trying to get a drink.

Nathan and Ian trying to get a drink at the same time.

When we got home from the temple there was this amazing sunset!
Soooo pretty!

The next day we went to Bridal Veil Falls. camera battery died.
But mind you, that was after taking more than 400 pictures.
You're lucky this isn't the longest post in the history of blogs.

*Tomorrow I have a really good ad-nalysis planned.
Trust me, it will make up for not having one last Sunday.*


  1. I bet you were sad to see them go....

  2. Good job on the pics! I bet it was wonderful to see your sister and her family. I love the drinking fountain pics.
