Remember this little boy? This is our great-nephew, Mattix.
And he’s two years old now.
Of course, that meant a party! We started out at the water park at North Valleys Regional Park.
There was pizza.
And ice cream.
Cards and lots of presents.
And just as we were about to eat some cake . . .
. . . lightning strikes began and the park had to close. So we had to head over to Grandma and Grandpa’s house to finish the party.
We finally get down the important part.
Then off to play some more!
And before it was all through, we got a group photo. I must say, I’m rather proud of myself on this achievement. I got everyone sitting and posed, Mattix was off to the side playing on the recliner. I told everyone, “No matter what happens with Mattix, keep looking into the camera.” I set the timer, grabbed Mattix from the recliner, threw him into his mommy’s lap, jumped into my spot and “Smiles!” Got it on the first take.
Gratuitous cute puppy photo. This is Bambi, the newest addition to my brother & sister-in-law’s household.
He’s not going to grow much if they keep trying to feed him through his ear . . . nice captures. did you use flash, or is this all natural light?
Natural light in the park. Flash bounced off the ceiling at the house.
Don’t they just grow so fast
Yes, they do!
These are really good photographs, Carissa! Nice light everywhere!
He’s adorable and your photos are wonderful. What a fun party. I’m sure it was hard to keep up with a 2-year old.
Yes, he is a bit of a whirling dervish!
Looks like a fun party! 🙂
