Birthday Boys

It's my brother and nephew's birthdays again, and we always celebrate together. Here are a few of my favorite shots this weekend (thank goodness for an awesome camera!):

The smiley birthday boy, my nephew Diego.

I'Olani aka tiger face.

The birthday boys, Diego and my bro. Can you tell how Doogy self-soothes?

Trampoline, beach balls, and my niece Alana.

My other niece Eva


Gorgeous girl.

This non-working cell phone was the hit of the party.

Evalu has tricks.

Lulu and her pretty eyes

My sister-in-law Steph

Eva, and the gaping hole where she knocked a tooth out.

Diego would answer the phone "hello?" then say, "ohhh mannnn!"



Tia loves you handsome!

Truth be told, I want a whole wall in my house full of candid pictures of my family. I love pictures of people being themselves - laughing, staring, napping (okay, I know that sounds creepy!), reading - so I can remember them exactly how they are when they're gone. 

P.S. Sorry I've been away too long... Between preparing to go abroad, work, exercising, classes, family, and visiting Justin, I've been exhausted! I've been reading your blogs though, and I love the little peeks inside your lives. I'll give you some updates soon! xo

What a bunch of cutie pies!!

And it's not creepy, I'm the same way! I have boxes of pictures that I keep meaning to get collage frames for.
Candid pics are way better than professionally made ones! :)
