Back to School

This week Elise started first grade. Carter starts pre-school next week after Labor Day. I heard a photographer in an interview say that the best way to get great back to school pictures is to take them before the first day of school. I thought this was a BRILLIANT idea! You don't have to worry about rushing in the morning to get one quick snapshot. So we went over to Elise's school and took pictures all over, in the front, the side and even on the playground. It was really fun and I feel like I got some really great shots capturing her excitement to start first grade. So far school has been good. Elise is waking up easier in the mornings than I thought and she loves that she gets to eat lunch at school. Best of all even though one of her really good friends is in another class, they can still eat lunch and have recess together everyday. Oh the joys of elementary school. Until next time, enjoy some pics!

Food and Football

Well it's that time of the year again when Aggie Football starts and for the first time we have a garden and fruit trees that are starting to produce some yummy food. Enjoy some pics :)

This was a family affair and ended up taking almost 3 hours
They were delicious though!

One week later, look how big our zucchini are growing now!

Blue only went down the slide with one kid and that was Carter. So cute!

Carter was so excited to see Chuckie Keeton
The players were super nice to the kids

One player even said to Elise, "what's up beautiful?" Super cute
We might have gotten the entire team's autograph :)

August Adventures

The last few weeks have been full of visitors and the Magalogo Family have been enjoying the summer before school starts. We had Elise's bestie Kalena come and stay with us for a few days. We also had Daniel's brother Deen visit, my sister Whitney along with my niece Bailey and even my parents came for a quick trip. Good times! Enjoy some pics.
