First Day of School AND Happy Birthday David!

While this blog is often used to entertain and provoke you, today we are taking care of a little family business. We had the first day of school as well as David's birthday!

The day started with the classic photo shoot.

Which included some classic Nate faces....

Smile with your bottom teeth!

Who said he's allowed to look so grown up?

Here is what Nathan looks like as a First Grader in action...

As has it has become the tradition, we headed to Original Pancake House for carbs and (gluten free for Mommy) pancakes. This time we had David with us! We enjoyed hanging out, contemplating which of the many pancakes to order and trying to keep the very vocal baby entertained. It was a lovely morning. And a great way to celebrate a birthday!*

*= The photographer in me has to mention that when we stopped at home before breakfast, we switched the camera from the 5D to the Rebel. I just had to say it.


  1. What a fun tradition! Such a photogenic family - you all are so full of personality:) Love, love, LOVE it!

  2. ok... this is funny to me. A couple of weeks ago we went to a crappy, NON-lifestyle portrait studio to do family pictures. (i hate them) but what I noticed was the difference between the kids in other families and the kids in mine. Children growing up with a photographer are simply always prepared. :)
