I Just Happen To Have It With Me

We were invited to a very last minute birthday party 2 days ago.  Like I had 24 hours notice.  It was at a lake (which makes me nervous with 4 kids and no life jackets), and there was no house.  Just a dock.  I had my doubts.  More like lack of control of the situation.  Going in blind.  But I decided to go for it and I'm glad I did.

At one point, one mother turned to the birthday girl's mother and asked her where her camera was and if she was getting pictures.  She said she didn't have it.  I remembered I had left my camera in the car from the night before and I told her I would love to take some pics of the party for her!!

I have no plans to become a photographer and start charging people.  The thought of that puts a lot pressure on me.  BUT, when the $$ pressure is off, and it blesses someone else, I really enjoy it!!

I had fun shooting all these kids and even made the family get together for a shot!!

Even more fun was dropping off a picture CD at their house the next morning!!!

The party goers!!

First Dr. Pepper EVER!!  Surprised she slept that night!

The kids were thrilled to not wear life jacket.  Me.  Ummnotsomuch. 

They were solely onlookers of the whole "being dropped off the top of the dock" thing.

Love me some 14 year old girls.  She asked to hold Rhodes.  And held him for like TWO HOURS!  It was nice knowing he was safe and she was happy too!

Pretty sure he has a crush on her now. 

It was so much fun and we were all worn out by the time we got home!!!!
