A Photoshoot

It happened again. A couple weekends ago, Dad and Mom took their every-once-in-awhile romantic getaway. And if you're a regular blog reader, you know what that means. Yep! Another surprise was in order. But more about that later...

In the meantime (while I'm still trying to gather pictures from our decorating re-make), part of our surprise was taking all-new individual pictures for Dad and Mom. With a heat index of well over 100 degrees, I was secretly wondering how we'd be able to pull off pictures that weren't filled with sweat and red faces. But, since the guys were putting in long hours of work, I only had one opportunity to snap the needed pictures.

So, armed with a camera and earnest prayers, we set off in search of a location. Thankfully, everyone cooperated beautifully and within 30 minutes our mission was accomplished!

Stay tuned for more of the surprise in a later post...
