A few pictures from the driveway last night.
Finally got K to agree to pose for some portraits this morning. Her face is changing again...
We took a recent trip to Kauai, and while I'm still going through pictures, I wanted to at least get one up here on the blog to show (off). This was our first time in Hawaii, and we had an absolute blast - not hard to see why folks think it's paradise. :)
This was our sunrise view, less than 100 yards from our door.
K went to day care today while Jenn was running an errand, and came back with a painted face! Naturally, while I was home for lunch, I had to take a picture...or several. :)
K actually asked to go take pictures tonight, so I jumped on it.! (It has been a very long time since we have done any nice portraits). Several have some promise, but I really liked this frame I grabbed while she was squirming around. Just got lucky with the expression. :)
Jenn signed K up for a one-day cheerleading camp at Rocky Mountain College this weekend, where they learn a cheer in the morning and perform it at halftime of the men's basketball game that night. It was an interesting experience - despite making lots of loud noises herself on a regular basis, K is really rather gunshy when loud noises that she didn't create are concerned. So having 15 other little girls all screaming out a cheer next to her was a bit startling. She liked the idea of flinging pompoms around, but was less enthused about the actual routine. During the performance, she just stood there looking miserable! But afterwards, she was flinging pompoms around in the stands with her friends and having a great time. :)

A few weeks ago we were visiting family in Denver, and for one afternoon we also got to visit our friends Evan and Nicola. (You may recognize them from a couple photos we took several years ago in the Family/Kids gallery) Their daughter Genevieve was born just a bit before Katherine was and it was neat for them to get to play together again! They had a blast, especially when Evan broke out the sleds!
It's been a LOOOOONG time coming!
Finally getting off my rump and updating the site. I've heard a lot about squarespace.com and their easy website hosting/templates, so I decided to make the switch. I definitely like the larger pictures and ease of use on the back end in terms of getting pictures uploaded and updating the galleries/slideshows. Unfortunately, it appears that I may have lost a lot of the old blog postings in this process, so this may be a fresh start here too. :( If I can resurrect them, I will, but either way I'm looking forward to a fresh start!
For now, I'll just leave you with this shot of K and her cousin at a recent family gathering:
