Father's Day

For his first official Father's Day, Josh got to go to his two favorite places in the world...... His family's cabin in Elijay and Turner Field. On Saturday, our friend Corey generously invited us to watch the Red Sox game in a suite on the Lexus pavilion. It was really nice and perfect way to see a game with a 7-month-old (Eli even got an hour nap).... so thank you Corey. We enjoyed the day even if the Braves lost.

On Sunday, we went to Elijay for a relaxing lunch. I can't wait until Eli can really enjoy the river and open space.

New Links

I have added a few new links to this blog, including one for my friend Jason's wedding portfolio. Next year I hope to start shooting weddings with him, and eventually I plan to at least make a simple website for my own portfolio.... but for now I wanted to post his site (which is in its infancy) in case anyone who visits the site knows someone who needs a photographer.

Plus, he actually has resonable prices:)

Fun in the Sun

Last week we went to Destin with The Finleys for our first family vacation. Everything went really well. We had a great time. Eli absolutely loved the pool but wasn't too crazy about the ocean. It's so nice to have so many people there to help with the baby so you can relax too. Josh, Grammie, PawPaw, Uncle Burt and Aunt Christy all took turns staying with Eli so I could actually lay out at the pool. It was so much fun I hope we can do it every year.... and maybe with the Scoggins,too.

Eli @ 6 months

These are Eli's 6-month photos from Target..(for those who live here I highly recommend our photographer named Jodi. She was great.) I was really happy with how they came out. There are several more poses but I just posted these. The one of him and the bear was Jodi's idea which I thought was pretty cute. I told Josh these will be the last of the naked portraits though I think they are adorable.

Photo Contest

Can you do me a favor?

I entered one of Eli's 5-month photos in a photo contest on Shutterfly. If you get a chance, could you go on and vote my baby 5 stars:) To get to vote click here

Plus, if you have the time, looking at all the other baby pictures is really fun..... and I enjoy just finding out all the things people name their children:)
