Lots of Laughing…

Yesterday Tony and I went up to Camp Verde to surprise my father with a small family get-together for his 50th birthday. I made lasagna and an inside-out German Chocolate Cake (recipe forthcoming). We even got Hannah to play a game with us, which is about as rare as Tony eating lamb and enjoying it.

I had forgotten how green Camp Verde can be! (That’s about as blonde as it gets…Verde..Green…um yeah). Notice I didn’t delete that. We’re capturing real time thoughts here, folks.

We ended up taking some decent family shots in my parent’s backyard. I’m still sorting through and editing them, but in the meantime I thought I’d post some candid shots that show how much fun we had. Man there’s nothing like seeing yourself guffawing in almost every shot. Someone please tell me to keep my mouth closed!

As you can imagine, there were lots of ‘sisterly moments.’  Somehow Hannah and I ended up wearing shirts of the same color and almost the same design. The weird thing is, that’s a pretty common occurrence with us!

I look so much like my mother in this one, it’s scary.

I actually caught Hannah in an honest-to-goodness genuine laugh. Love this shot:

I even got a candid shot of Brooks, though she wasn’t as cooperative. Playing fetch with Grace:
