3rd Annual Dragon Boat Festival at High Rock Lake

The boat race was earlier this month. It's been quite crazy around here this month. We had the boat race, Haylee's birthday, family visiting and a beach trip coming. It's been a great/busy month.
This is the 3rd annual boat race, however it was our first time. We had a great time out on the lake. It was very hot, but we had a tent set up, fans and lots of refreshments! Haylee really enjoyed it and had fun with everyone! My husband was in the race and I was a happy cheerleader! They got 2nd place and the corporate health cup.
I hope we get to attend this again in the future, enjoy the photos!

Haylee Marie at One!!!

DSC_0100 copy
We had a big celebration this month, our baby girl turned one! These photos are from her birthday party and visit with family. We were so blessed that so many of our closest family and friends made it out to celebrate Haylee's first birthday. It was a hot day too and even with that hot hot day, everyone was in great spirit and enjoyed the day. I think next year we are going to look for a venue with air condition! Our snow cone machine could not have picked the worst time to stop working. I'm so glad the kids forgave us and enjoyed the piƱata, balloons, toys, cake and dessert table instead. That worked out in our favor! haha! Haylee may not remember this day, but i'm so thankful to have captured it. I mostly took video with the help of our great friends. My aunt, an amazing photographer helped photograph the day and I wish I could upload ALL her photos on here too, but you can check those out on facebook. I wanted our family in Alabama to see the day and feel like they were with us! Thanks to all of our great family and friends, ya'll are truly amazing and I want to say again how blessed we are! And not to mention the amazing gifts she got. I'll have to take separate photos, but just thank you all!

The video is pretty long, but great video of Haylee "blowing" the candles on her cake, gift opening, pinanta fun and more! (27 minutes)

It's been so long since we have done a fashion post here. Well hopefully I can say that we will be doing more of these posts. It's been tough to keep up with posting blogs with the little one and a job. I'm working on more posts this week, her birthday photos and the boat race my husband was in a couple of weeks ago.

ross, smokey + zeus - fourth of july

I love the America filled theme of this session and could not wait to share when it got closer to Fourth of July. Ross came with his dogs to do a Fourth photo session with us. I'm so glad we got time for this, we were cutting it close!
Isn't this the cutest session?! These furbabies look adorable in their Fourth of July bow ties. I don't usually have dogs in photos, but these furbabies were so good to work with.
I'll admit they loved to jump and sniff this new place out. We got the energy out of them and they were chill. I even loved when we got to put glasses on Smokey.
