Impromptu Photo Shoot

The other day we finally had one of those rare sunny nice spring days and I decided to take the camera in the backyard and make the girls pose for me before "releasing" them to play.  They like the "make a silly face" shots too much at this point, sometimes, that's all I get; but this time, I got some nice ones thrown in, too.

All smiles.  Ironically, this is one of the first pictures I took, I could've quit right then and would've been happy with the results.

You can almost hear their giggles

And then I got them to pose again

It's hard to get Annelee to not have her head all the way to the side in a silly pose at the moment.  I'm pretty sure Vivian went through that phase as well.  This one's pretty good though.

I like that you can still see those gaps where she lost the baby teeth

Girl Scout & UU

Vivian and a few of her friends at church earned their "My promise, my faith" pin today which links the UU principles with the the girl scout promise.  They met three times to work through different tasks, cumulating in the artwork they are holding up here, and a presentation of the new pins during the service.  The background of the art is made up from quotes from famous Unitarian women.  Vivian had a lot of fun and learned quite a few things in the process, too.

Proudly posing with their artwork!
