{ 4 Day } Weekend Recap

Thursday night after work I drove straight to East Wenatchee to meet this beautiful baby girl.

Delane gave birth early which made it very convenient for me to take a day off from work and head over for a visit and a photoshoot. We spent half of the day in our pj's hanging out around the house figuring out new shot locations, etc. I prefer natural light (no flash) newborn photos and their house was ideal with beautiful sunlight coming in through all of the windows. As I've mentioned before, Delane and Kevin's home is so incredibly comfortable and beautiful that I always feel like I'm staying in a luxury hotel when visiting.

I headed out late Friday afternoon, leaving behind beautiful blue, Eastern WA sunny skies for dreary weather on the westside of the state. Friday night we packed up the trailer and preparied for our first Whidbey Island weekend getaway with friends that have made this an annual Labor Weekend festivity. Saturday morning, we caught the 1pm Mukilteo ferry and headed over to Lynne's family cabin in Greenbank. The theme of the weekend was "80s attire only." With that said, Steve and I found some last minute gems at the Value Village in Kent. I had debated about not posting photos of myself as I'm pretty embarassed of both mine and Steve's attire, but figured it had to be shared. As unattractive as the "mom jeans" were they were actually quite comfortable - ha! The two days at Whidbey were a blast and to top it off, my partner Devin and I took home the trophies for going undefeated in the weekend sporting activities.










Sunday morning we caught an early ferry with the rest of the group, hurried home, and left again for Maddy's 1st birthday party. I haven't attended many first birthday parties, but it's always so cute to see how the kids react to their cake and all of the guests. Per usual, Jenny prepared some excellent food and she and Nick threw a great party with friends and family that had traveled as far away as Bozeman to celebrate with Maddy.


Tutu and onesie were both made by Jenny - she taught herself how by watching a video on YouTube - she is quite the crafty lady these days


Maddy was more concerned about how messy she was getting from the frosting than actually enjoying the cake


Hope you all had a safe and enjoyable Labor Day Weekend!

The Johnsons said...

Seriously.....those jeans you are wearing....intersting, wow, yuck! The only thing that would have made them better is if you had used pink and teal puffy paint to make a design on them. Looks like a great time though and great outfits!

Jaclyn Z. Reiss said...

OH MAH GAH. Stac is RIGHT. Those jeans are srsly illegal in all 50 states (Ohio included). I may have to frame the one of you and Steve. Or at least I think that is Steve. ;) xoxo

Ummmm yeah, that's my husband in full out WT form - thank GOD he's MUCH cuter in person - ha! Pants are from Value Village - I found them and let out a serious gasp and said out loud "these are perfect!" and then proceeded to yell across the store to show Steve - they were honestly pulled up to my bra.

Lynne said...
